Bikini wax? Check. Sexy lingerie? Done. A brand-spanking-new pair of heels? Got ‘em. But with all your last-minute preparations for the big day, you forgot to shop for a new dress. We’ve all been there, but instead of frantically trying to search for a red dress on the fly (we’re guessing they’re all sold out by now), change it up and go for the gold — literally — in a gilded frock.
Whether you’re off to happy hour with the ladies tonight or waiting until the weekend to dine at a fancy resto with your beau, we rounded up 12 gold dresses that’ll have your man — or that stranger across the bar — stopped in his gazing tracks. A happy Valentine’s Day, indeed.
