WATCHING FAMOUS WOMEN on the red carpet wear their evening gowns has become a sort of sport. We all sit there and comment, judge, and praise or deify. But when the situation is turned on us, when we are the ones who have to go somewhere that requires an evening gown, we often enter into a state of terror. This is why you should buy an evening gown when you do not need it. Typically, we search for an evening gown only when we have somewhere to go. Then we are in torturous situation of the under-pressure-evening-gown-hunt. We will usually throw our hands up in defeat and spend too much on a dress we are not even that crazy about.
The smarter girl never passes a sale rack without looking at the evening gowns. If she sees one she loves, she buys it. It does not matter that she has no black-tie events in her future. She knows that the invite will come-and when it does, it’s best to have an evening gown waiting in the wings.
