More often than not, the Elegant Bride fashion editors Monica and Alycia select pieces that I can't resist. Recently, the sparkle from one of the dresses in the fashion closet caught my eye, and like an addict I just had to have it. Of course I needed to try it on, so on Monday morning before everyone's first cup of joe, I wiggled my way into this fabulous Naeem Khan Fall 2009 ready-to-wear dress and had a little fun to kick off the day. I posed for the paparazzi (aka photo editor Claudia) and hopefully started everyone's week with a little smile.
I can imagine this dress on a beautiful bride for her rehearsal dinner, afterparty, or even bachelorette party. After trying it on in the office, I saw it at Bergdorf Goodman and seriously thought about buying it. For those of you who, like me, are not getting married this fall or just need an excuse for a stunning cocktail dress, it is perfect for a fun New Year's Eve party. Everyone loves sparkles in winter and January is coming quick. —Erin Swift, contributing lifestyle and reception editor, Elegant Bride
