In November I am attending my first Queen’s University alumni event – and to say I am excited is an understatement. The event is ‘black-tie optional’, which is always a challenge when looking for a dress. As it is an alumni event, the dress can’t be too over the top – but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun! I haven’t found a dress yet, but I have been looking for ones with fun detailing on the back – backless, bows, etc. Something that will steer clear of the average LBD, but will not be to over the top. Below are a few dresses that have interesting backs, yet are still appropriate for the event.
