If you are a lady that likes to dress in comfortable clothes like sweats, jeans, and simple tee shirts, just like me, but does not mind spicing things up for a fancy occasion, then here is an excuse to show off. On May 2, Kean University is having their Senior Formal at the Sheraton Hotel in Parsippany, NJ. The attire for the event is black and white, and in order to help you ladies out, here are some ideas for dresses, jewelery, shoes, and hairstyles that you can wear on this big night.


Rebekah's black dress from “The Originals”

In “The Originals” for episode 3 called “Tangled up in blue” Rebekah Mikaelson wore a goregous strapless black long dress with a black ribbon in the middle of it. This dress is perfect for an elegant occasion and the best thing is that no matter what jewelry piece you add to it, it will still look timeless. It is also easy enough to move around in, especially if you are a major dancer at parties. This dress style is very popular and you can find it pretty much in any store that sells formal clothing for large events.
