        My birthday was last week, and when I say the complements on my dress are still coming, that's an understatement. This dress caused heads to turn and mouths to drop when I entered the room for my 55th birthday celebration. It made me feel like the elegant queen that I am. Great quality and details. Not, to mention I just purchased 2 more outfits (1 for an upcoming African wedding, and 1 just to keep in my closet for my next show stopper.
