The Little Black Party Dress

I went to J.Crew yesterday just to return an item that I realized I was not going to wear after having it in my closet for over a month. After I returned the jacket I proceeded to browse through all the sale items to see if I would find anything worth buying. I saw this dress and loved the cut of it but not the extra ruffle around my waist (don't want to bring any additional attn. to this area...)
In the picture, I found a solution to eliminating the extra ruffle problem, and now I am perfectly happy with wearing this dress to my Birthday celebration.
The total price of the dress was $53.00. The picture is not clear because I took it with my camera phone. The dress looks much better in person.
Let me know what you all think.


Ohh!! and I almost forgot.... Happy New Year and May all your Dreams come true!!

Congrats on your purchase - the dress looks great on you and it looks like you got a great deal on the dress.

Just curious, what's your solution to the ruffle?

Purseaholic....I folded the ruffle in all around the waist and did some light sewing t o keep it tucked it.

Wendy, the dress is cinched at the wait...the only thing I touched was the extra ruffle.

Musickcaster...no dresses to the bowling alley.
