I am so undecided on this one! This Tracy Reese Shantung Embroidered Strapless Dress, on sale for $252.29 (originally $495), is the streamlined strapless silhouette I adore. But the gold lurex embroidery in brocade pattern down the front is just so dramatic. Now I don't mind making a statement, but I'm not sure what statement this makes. Is it exotic chic? Or a tad bit tacky? Or too 80's Dynasty-esque? You tell me.
