Celebrating National Dress Day In Marion County

The Gown Shoppe @ Arts & Antiques Marketplace

Little girls like to play dress up – and guess what, so do big girls. We often recall our dearest memories by what we were wearing. (And what we were eating, but that is for a different time).


Dresses have been worn for hundreds of years. Today, they come in a variety of shapes and designs. From long, mini, fit and flare to the ball gown and A-line. Needless to say, dress designs have changed drastically throughout the years. However, they still provide a distinctive look and one-of-a-kind fit adding a level of poise and confidence to any event.

March 6th is National Dress Day and reason enough to relive some of our dearest memories.


But more importantly, there are new memories to be made. So when the occasion calls to see and be seen, Marion County has some great options to add glamour to any event big or small.
