Happy National Dress Day! If you have a new dress you have been waiting to wear, today is the day to show it off! National Dress Day was founded by Ashley Lauren (fashion designer of the evening dress brand, ASHLEYlauren) in October 2016 to “honor all of the ways dresses help us celebrate the significant moments of our lives”.
