I received this dress to review. When I accepted it, I had not yet been invited to this party.
First comes the squeal of excitement…then comes that dark cloud of “WHAT THE HECK AM I GOING TO WEAR?”
This is the rush of emotions you feel when you’re invited to a premiere and a PARTY with Morgan Freeman, Alan Arkin, Michael Caine, Ann Margaret, and Christopher Lloyd. A movie called “Going in Style” really put the pressure ON. I knew that being stylish at this event had to be KEY!
If I’m invited to this scenario in Los Angeles, I have to go glam (gowns, cocktail dresses, ands lots of ruffles & lace). If I’m invited in New York, it’s more of a classic elegance. Classic elegance is my thing (I struggle with the whole over-dressed L.A. feel…it goes against everything that I believe fashion should be).
Rumaging through the closet
After spending 10 minutes rummaging through my closet trying to decide what I could not only wear, but what would pack well in my little carry-on it hit me. Mikah Fashions had sent me their Boho Chic dress. A dress made of viscose, a dress I can wash in the hotel room sink and wear again, a dress that I only have to hang in the bathroom to steam the wrinkles from me just shoving it into my suitcase (I should have rolled it) would work perfectly.
I took a chance
I hadn’t worn the dress before. This would be a FIRST time, and I wasn’t sure that it would give me that casual elegant look that I wanted. Then again, I had a page of instructions to wear the dress more ways than I could have imagined.
Since this dress is
- One size fits sizes 0 – 16 (I’m a size 12/14)
- One length (the model wearing the dress is 5’8″, I am 5’1″)
- Wash & Wear
- Multi-style options to wear (see options chart above)
- A Tunic
- A Mini-Dress
- A Tie Dress (front or back)
- and most of all AFFORDABLE – only $89
I had to make the decision as to how I was going to wear it. Then it hit me. I’d toss on a pair of flats and wear it as a mini. That way I would be comfortable throughout the night (some times you just have to make a shoe decision first).
- Charcoal – MY DRESS (figured I could make it pop with red shoes)
- Heather grey
- Light blue
- Military/Creme Striped
- Black/Grey/Silver Striped
Of course, I’m heading back to the Mikah Fashion site to see what ELSE I could add to my wardrobe, as I have a lot of travel coming, plus I need a dress for the rehearsal dinner that I’m giving in July.

Do NOT miss the Mikah Fashion handbags! The leather looks so soft and supple, that I want to touch them through the website.
