Summer 2013 Fashion Spotlight: Von Vonni Transformer Dress

Von Vonni 's Transformer dress (from $79) really is more than meets the eye. This versatile dress can be worn long or short.  As a halter, one-shoulder or with long or capped sleeves.

The Von Vonni woman is attracted to clean, wearable silhouettes.  Everything She Wants was invited to the glamorous up-and-coming label's New York City showroom to check out Von Vonni's latest styles for Spring/Summer 2013 --which have been worn by  Real Housewives of Atlanta star and model Cynthia Bailey--and to pick out a lovely dress to model. Don't you want one? Me modeling a long Von Vonni Transformer dress. Photos by Tracy E. Hopkins and Von Vonni.
