This dress doesn’t get as much airtime as I’d like since its dramatic train and colorful patterns are so striking. Over the years it has been a staple for tropical vacation dinners and events but I have successfully found another reason to throw on a gown. This past week was the Indian holiday of Diwali–or Festival of Lights–and I couldn’t think of a more perfect dress to wear for the fete. Indian culture is great at embodying color and patterns and sparkle, so when wearing this dress I felt right at home to celebrate the night away–with a firecracker finish to the evening of course!
