Hit the Town in this Stunning and Sultry Dress


[slideshow_deploy id=’16130′]

This dress will be great for an evening out to dinner, dancing, or a stroll in the moon light. This beautiful dress will be a perfect addition to my cruise wardrobe. I have been buying from Lightinthebox for several years and ordered many times and have had no problem receiving my orders. I have only had to contact customer service one time and they responded back to me immediately to resolved my concern. I would definitely recommend ordering from them.

Feel free to browse our VAST Special Occasion Dress collection to find that one dress that take you from a night out to a cruise!

LITB Customer Interview: Denise Phillips

Denise, a newly engaged gal from Singapore, recently bought this dress from LightintheBox.  Here’s what she has to say:

The dress is really very pretty. Order on the 31st of July and received on the 8th of Aug, now thats really quick delivery. The dress itself is very well structured, quality of the material is pretty good! Definitely worth the price. 2 or 3 sequins have come loose but I expect that out of any dress with sequins. I ordered the blushing pink one to go in with my wedding colour scheme.

Its super shiny and sparkly, looks great in pictures. I order a size 12 even though I can fit into a size 10, just in case it was tight, I could always tailor.

It’s a little too brightly coloured for me. (I was hoping for a more pastel or baby pink since there are no swatches for sequins), I think this dress looks better with dark colours. Overall, I have yet to decide whether I like the pink to wear it at my wedding but service and workmanship wise, Lightinthebox.com is pretty awesome.

We think you look lovely, Denise!  To see more photos of Denise in her dress, check out her blog.

Wedding Wednesday: Be Our Guest Pt. 2

Welcome to Part 2 of our series on wedding guest outfits! Last week we saw some amazing dresses for wedding guests to wear to church or beach weddings. In this week’s post we’ll be highlighting some fashionable and affordable options that are perfect for outdoor or hall weddings!

If you’re attending a church or beach wedding this summer then be sure to check out Part 1 of this series! Our LightInTheBox Wedding Collection has tons more options as well…Happy Shopping!


Outdoor or garden weddings are the great for showing off your cutest ensemble! Floral detailing or flowy dresses are perfect for this kind of wedding. Feel free to wear a sundress or maxi dress, and be sure to pick something colorful!


A hall wedding is a bit more formal than an outdoor wedding, but definitely not as reserved as a church wedding—and your ensemble should reflect that! A casual cocktail dress or a structured sundress with unique detailing are both great options for a hall wedding!

Fashion Friday: Lovely Lace

Happy Friday, fashionistas! Do you love lace as much as I do?? Then you’re going to love what you’re about to see! In this week’s post you’ll be seeing some of our sexiest and sweetest pieces, all made of lovely lace.

Contrary to what pop culture will have you believe, wearing lace doesn’t have to mean you’re in the mood or on the prowl…we all know just how confident a woman can feel when she’s wearing lace! Sure, lace can make you feel sexy (and we all like feeling sexy every now and then!)—but with so many fashionable options these days, the way you choose to wear your lace can make you feel however you wish! From sexy to sweet and everywhere in between!

If you’re in the crowd that thinks of lace as matronly and old, think again! So you’re tired of the traditional nude and ivory colored lace? Don’t be afraid to wear your lace in any color! Black, blue, fuchsia, red—they’re all great options!

For more lovely options, lace or otherwise, check out our LightInTheBox Fashion Collection.

Fashion Friday: Look Of The Day!

♪♫ It’s Friday, Friday, gonna get down on Friday! ♪♫ If you love Friday half as much as I do, I know you’ll be singing this song all day long! Since Fridays have become synonymous with going out and having fun, why not strive to look your best! In this post you’ll see my choices for the look of the day— the perfect ensemble to start your weekend off right!

Here’s just a taste of some seriously fabulous items that will set you apart from the crowd! To see more great options, visit the LightInTheBox Fashion Collection.

1) You can rock a modern day trend with this vintage inspired fuchsia dress! This dress is as sweet as it sexy, and it’s refreshing to learn that you can have some sex appeal without a low-cut neckline or short skirt. Pair this bright dress with some funky accessories and you’re good to go!

2) This peacock feather headband with burgundy bow is the perfect topper for that fun & flirty dress! The bright turquoise color of the feathers is just the right contrast with the deep, rich fuchsia color of the dress.

3) This pair of teardrop-shaped jade earrings looks amazing with this outfit! The gold and rhinestone accents are perfect for a flashy, nighttime look. And jade is the perfect shade to match the headband!

4) Wearing this set of bohemian inspired bangles is a great way to tie things together! The pearl pink, turquoise and ivory colors along with the gold hued alloy metal echoes the colors previously seen in the ensemble, which is ideal.

5) These patent leather pumps are the ideal shoe to pair with this ensemble! The barely-there pink hue of the shoe goes really well with the saturated color of the dress & it’s neutral enough to balance out the whole look.

6) Although you might be thinking ‘why a black clutch??’ this patent leather wristlet is the perfect complement to this outfit! The patent leather here mirrors the same material used in the pumps, which really pulls things together.

Wedding Wednesday: Sassy Simplicity

A wedding and the reception that follows is a celebration—it should be fun and enjoyable for everyone! But wanting to have the most fun wedding around can sometimes break the bank! Not every bride wants to have an over-the-top wedding that is outside of her budget…and that’s where we come in. This week’s post will highlight some amazing picks that are perfectly sassy and simple (and great prices too!).

Wearing a simple wedding gown does not mean that your gown has to be plain! You can still wear your favorite dress style and you can still have embellishments—in fact, both of these options are perfect for a sassy look! The key here is to make sure that everything is well balanced and not too elaborate. Remember, less is more! The same rules apply to bridesmaids as well. If you’re having them wear a fun, vivid color then keep the dress style more modest. But if they’ll be wearing a neutral color then feel free to pick a funky dress for them!

Each dress featured here has that perfect balance of sassy and simple! Take a look around our LightInTheBox Wedding Collection for more options.

Kick up the sass level at your simple wedding by wearing a short dress! Adding a belt or crystal detailing can make it unique and the length allows you to show off a killer pair of heels!


Stick with one fabric and minimal embellishments and your simple, floor length gown is a go! Adding ruffles or beading can really take it to the next level.


Who said bright dresses couldn’t be simple?? Take a minimal design and sass it up by choosing interesting fabrics or vivid colors!

Fashion Friday: Pastel Hues

Happy Friday ladies! Now that we’re back in the LightInTheBox offices after Chinese New Year, everybody is thinking about one thing and one thing only—springtime! In this week’s post we are unveiling our Ice Cream Collection, the newest arrivals in fabulous pastel hues just for spring!

Inspired by the upcoming season our Ice Cream Collection features a variety of colors with a focus on more pastel hues. With colors like mint green, coral, pearl pink, sky blue, lavender and mustard yellow, you can’t go wrong! These soft pastel shades are ideal for the woman who wants to exude a charming glow and, with such trendy styles and flattering silhouettes, just a hint of sex appeal.

These designs are perfect for the transition from day to night, as well. Wear that tank dress with a cute cardigan and flats for the office, and then change into a leather jacket with some killer heels for a night out! The muted pastel shades are go perfectly with the warm spring weather, but some of us (including us here in Beijing!) will suffer through cooler temperatures for a while longer. That’s why we’ve also highlighted a few light coats in bright colors that will last you through the next few months!

Check out our LightInTheBox Fashion Collection for more new arrivals!


Fashion Friday: Black & White

Although I love to rock bright colors and loud prints, it can be just as fun to wear a classy outfit for a night out on the town or even just to the office. And when I want that perfect mix of modern and retro, this is what I look for. In this week’s post you’ll see some sophisticated fashions in the most classic color combination—black and white!

When I imagine my perfect black and white ensemble a few words that come to mind are elegant, chic, and stylish. This particular color combination is making a comeback this season, as it is being seen on many different designers’ runways. To make the most of this color arrangement, you could wear houndstooth, polka dot or striped patterns with either black or white as the background and the other as the accent color! But wearing a patterned ensemble is definitely not the only way to look fashionable in this color combination!

Finding items to create your own black and white outfit should be easy, as most women have staple pieces in those colors in their wardrobes already! A black pencil skirt and white button-up shirt is one combo that can be both tasteful at the office and sexy at happy hour!

Here are some sassy, sexy and sophisticated jackets, dresses and tops from the LightInTheBox Fashion Collection…what do you think of this trend?


1) Striped Trench Coat

2) Fur Jacket

3) Tweed Blazer

4) Ruffle Party Dress

5) Houndstooth Dress
