This one is for the ladies in need of evening wear, coming from a dude who knows very little about buying a dress. With my limited fashion knowledge, I can only provide you with facts via self-answered questions. I’ll let you come to your own conclusions.

What it is: A store for girls (or guys that like to dress up like girls) with all items imported from the United States.
Occasions to shop there: A prom, a military ball, a wedding, or a night out on the town.
Why I went there: My girlfriend needed a dress for her brother’s wedding.
Why it’s a big deal: My girlfriend got so excited she made a squealing noise when we walked. She said this store is really good and reminds her of Macy’s.
