David’s Bridal’s Dress makes it to the White House!
by Carmen Ordonez
This past week I was one of 70 Latina bloggers to be invited to the White House! It was such an amazing experience and one I will never forget. We were invited for a special briefing to discuss issues affecting Latinos nationwide, such as health and education. We got to meet with the Chief of Staff for the Department of Education, The Associate Director for the White House Initiatives and the Special Assistant to the President among others.
The night before my big visit to the White House, I got to enjoy a special reception at the Helix Hotel in Washington, D.C. to meet with all the bloggers who were invited. The reception was cocktail attire, so I decided to go with this David’s Bridal strapless number.
At first I had picked out a black dress, but decided to spice it up a bit and went with this gold dress instead. I loved how simple it was, but it still stood out. The gold belt also gave it a nice touch, and did I mention it has pockets? (Always a perk to any dress in my book). I paired it with some black pumps and kept the accessories very minimal.
The dress was a hit throughout the night, and I was still able to feel very comfortable and relaxed in it. What’s your go-to-dress for cocktail parties?
