Dresses That Make You Feel Feminine

What better way to flaunt your femininity than in a pretty dress?  Take a look at these lovely readers who sent in their photos this week.


Royal in Blue

Looks like my recent feature on maxi skirts may have inspired Sara, a fashion blogger at lifestyle over 40, because here she is in a striking cobalt blue maxi that she wore on her birthday.

Doesn’t this color look stunning with her gorgeous winter coloring?

Sara’s sheer skirt combined with this pretty lace wrap top would make anybody feel like a Queen. I love her choice of jewelry which really finishes off the outfit. You look regal, Sara!

A Feminine Masterpieceanne-dress

When Anne couldn’t find the perfect dress for a destination wedding in Barbados, she decided to create one. Anne’s vision was a 1940’s-era dress that exemplified Hollywood glamour but would not compete with the bride.

To create a layered effect, Anne used several layers of charmeuse for the skirt and bodice, and finished off the hem of the skirt with a lettuce edge. This silk georgette dress with large concentric dots in soft shades of yellow and blue creates a feminine silhouette that’s perfect for a beach wedding.

You are quite the wedding belle, Anne.

Grab an artsy dress, lacy tights, rouge lips, and a marvelous pair of heels and you’ve got a look that’s bold, daring, and  original.

Deanna’s graphic print dress with its cut-out detail is both dramatic and feminine. She chose lace patterned tights  to heat things up and show off her creative style.

I find there’s something kind of art deco – Great Gatsby-ish about this outfit – don’t you think?

You’re a pretty gal and sure to stand out in a crowd in this unique look, Deanna. Have Fun!


I love hearing from you and cheering you on, Glam Gals!

  1. First look is fab but needs a lighter shoe, the ones worn with this outfit are too formal / heavy / office looking.
    Third look, the dress is very pretty, but I think the patterned tights are wrong, they clash with the dress. And the shoes, with those ankle straps, cut the legs off and make them look shorter, combined with the tights – makes a very jumbled look, the eye doesn’t know where to look. This is a light summer dress that needs nude legs or if you want to wear it in cooler weather you need a shrug/jacket and then you might be able to get away with solid tights (sheer or semi-opaque) and a non-summer shoe.

    Too much pattern in the dress for patterned tights/stockings.
