You know that corny old saying, "I hate to see you go, but I love to watch you leave"? Okay, I kind of love it! It's trite but what girl doesn't love being watched (ogled?) as she struts away from a guy who is admiring her? These dresses make sure an exit is a beautiful thing in itself!
Lately I'm obsessed with the back. A bare back is strikingly sexy and often unexpected. There is nothing quite like wearing a dress that is fairly conservative, almost prim, in the front and then when your back is turned just so, a wall of skin is exposed. You can practically hear jaws drop! In these show stoppers there is no need to display anything else or to even accessorize. The best view is the one you'll show when you're leaving. Just make sure you take an extra trip to the powder room on date night to give the poor guy something to drool at.
He won't stand a chance.
