     Everything about this
     dress from Angie’s Fash-
     ion in Ridgeland screams
     elegance including Adri-
     enne. This silky blue
     taffeta is stunning with
     loads of detail. The one
     shoulder        rhinestone
     crusted strap holds ev-
     erything in place while
     the criss-cross bodice
     nips in your waist . Even
     with the long, ruffled train,
     the knee length hem
     in the front makes this
     gown great for dancing.
     The keyhole detail in the
     small of your back leaves
     a little surprise when
     you’re walking away.
