Hollywood Heaven.  That is what I would have to say to describe this dreamy chiffon dress.  Fit for a princess, this affordable vintage dress, along with the beautifully paired accessories, will make you feel like royalty without having to pay top dollar.  A true “Maid in Manhattan” moment will be sure to occur once you slip on this silky fabric, surely cool to the touch, while adding the light, shimmery crystals round your neck.  No man will be able to deny how stunning you will look in this outfit as they watch you slip your fur shawl off your bare shoulders.  For one night, this outfit will truly make you feel like the Cinderella that you are inside and out…
