Meileilan in our Mac Duggal After 5 dress


Hi guys!

I am so thrilled to share with you my recent collaboration with the Mac Duggal Design House.  If you don’t know his designs yet then you should check out his beautiful collections of dresses that are perfect for a variety of events.  His company is based just outside of Chicago in Burr Ridge, IL and his work has been seen at a variety of celebrity red carpet events and on screen productions by several famous actresses and recording artists.

Today, I am featuring this flattering Mac Duggal “After 5” collection dress that will be sure to turn heads.  This fit and flare dress is available in either emerald or fuschia in color and can mimic an hourglass shape no matter your size.  I love how it cinches and holds my waist while creating an illusion of a smaller torso.  The details of this dress are where it really shines. The added black crystals, beads, and threaded ribbon chains add a subtle touch of glamour to this chic and classy dress.  It’s perfect for a red carpet event, a night out with that special someone, or an upcoming formal event.

I had so much fun doing this photo shoot.  Everything about this dress gave me a boost of confidence that I can’t help but smile.  I felt beautiful and confident wearing this and that is so important to me in what I choose to wear.  Look for clothes and go out and do things that make you feel confident, because “When you have confidence, you can have a lot of fun.  And when you have fun, you can do amazing things.” – Joe Namath
