We went to an event at The Crucible in Oakland California a few weeks ago. The Crucible is a non-profit educational facility that fosters a collaboration of Arts, Industry and Community. That is my husband wearing the vintage smoking jacket and cowboy boots. My dress is from Sydney’s Closet. I love them. They have alwyas given me great service and they have a pretty extensive line of in-stock prom and cocktail dress in sizes 38+, yes 38+. I usually order a 30 (I am a 26 -28) but I have it taken in the arms and sometimes shortened. The dresses are not really designed for women my age and apple shaped. But do be careful, I usually stick to the Sydney’s Closet Signature Collection because I can depend on the sizing.
I have NEVER gotten so many compliments on what I was wearing, even the cast stopped to say how much they liked it.
Dress: Sydneys Closet – Size 30, shortened to above the knee
