Zac Posen Semi Flapper Dress

Lately I've been lusting after flapper dresses. I want one with massive silk fringe (NOT beaded) that I can wear out on the town to dance the night away. Fringed dresses look beyond cool on the dance floor. I've had real problems locating the perfect fringe dress. First, all vintage dresses are too small for me, and besides that they are rare. Next, fringe dresses tend to be trapeze dresses, which only look attractive on very slender women, which I am not. Finally, most modern fringe dresses are a bit scantly populated in terms of fringe, and just look cheap in my opinion. So, understandably I have had a difficult time located THE dress.

Zac Posen saved the day! He showed this beautiful red-orange dress in his pre-fall 2009 collection. It is simply divine! I love that the fringe is only in the skirt, which allows for a real waist and fitted sweetheart bodice. Fabulous! The best booty shaking dress I've seen in a long time!
