    Striking Ballroom/Smooth Dress for Sale

    This dress is beautiful, moves beautifully and stands out from the crowd with startling red underskirt and vibrant stoned bodice. It was made by DSI – as to fit I’m not sure how best to give details – so here goes I’m 5’5 in heels and uk size 8 – don’t think it would go to more than a 10...

    DSI glue gone white?!?!?

    Thankfully not my dress – my dance partners top. When I hand wash my dress it normally gets left in the water for about 15 minutes – never had this happen It was somewhere in between – the glue was white but kinda dry/brittle – not wet like when you are applying stones On the up side – I...
