Clearance at Carraz

Looks like the recession is still affecting everyone. That's why we've got a great selection of evening dresses on sale - both online and in-store. At our Glendale location, we had a couple of customers walk out with dresses previously hanging on our clearance racks. The great thing is that it’s not easy to tell that the dresses those customers walked out with today were on clearance: one customer walked out with a pink junior dress in impeccable condition.

Even though most customers take time to debate about whether they want to buy clearance dresses or not, a good number realize that the clearance items are definitely worth it.

While we may only have physical locations in Southern California, we’ve expanded our affordable gowns to our online store! (Check out the clearance dresses on our website.) No matter where you’re from you can still take advantage of huge savings on our great bargains online.

Celebrity Dresses Now Available at!

If there's one thing that Faviana is known for, it's their take on red carpet fashions. Faviana's Fall '09 collection sizzles with celebrity appeal, featuring styles inspired by some of Hollywood's brightest stars. Newly uploaded on, Faviana dresses are now available for divas who want to look good on and off the red carpet. These hot styles will definitely up the drama factor, regardless of the event! Best of all, owning a celebrity dress doesn't have to break the bank - you get the glitz and glamour without going bankrupt.

Take this hot dress worn by Natalie Portman to the 2009 Oscars at the Kodak Theater last February. She was pretty in pink wearing a fabulous creation by Rodarte, paired off with Stella McCartney shoes. In soft chiffon and embellished with dazzling beadwork, Faviana's version 6425 oozes over with star quality. Available in a similar watermelon color, you'll be just as pretty in pink for sure!

Regardless of the season or reason, no reason why you can't sparkle with your own brand of star quality wearing a celebrity dress by Faviana. For more stellar creations by Faviana, log on to

Sherri Hill Styles on

The makers of the famous fish dress, Sherri Hill, presents a stunning Fall collection that features a diverse range of lengths, styles and silhouettes. Just when we thought that nothing could beat the gorgeous styles of Spring '09, we are treated to the eye candy that is the Fall collection of Sherri Hill.

Sherri Hill's Fall collection features the tried-and-true classics of Spring, best-selling dresses that were so good they deserved an encore. This includes, of course, the much-lauded fish dress with its mermaid silhouette and beadwork resembling fish scales all over its skirt. Another classic, Sherri Hill 1102 was a celebrity dress worn by Jordin Sparks on the red carpet.

Of course, there are the trademark baby doll dresses that are uniquely Sherri Hill. Frothy confections in every imaginable color for the fun and feminine lass looking for a flirty frock. From last season, we see baby doll dresses like 1050 and 1101 which topped the charts during Spring '09 and graced many a dance floor. There are also new styles like 1100 to 1104, 2102 and 2105 in every color of the rainbow: pleasant pastels, deep reds and even plaids and prints for the scottish lassies. If you're looking for a cocktail dress that will let you get your girly groove on, Sherri Hill is definitely the way to go.

Sherri Hill's fall collection is now available on Order now!

Remembering the Fish Dress

Sherri Hill had an outstanding season last prom '09, with her collection of knock-out prom dresses. This came as no surprise to us, since Sherri Hill is an industry veteran with over a decade of experience under her belt.

There was one style that stood out in Sherri Hill's Spring Collection, a best-selling prom dress that flew out of our stores and filled up our online order slips. The first one one was Sherri Hill 2018, fondly referred to by us as The Fish Dress. Brilliantly designed to resemble fish scales, this mermaid dress made fashion history for us. Not a day during prom season went by that we didn't see some activity on that style - someone trying it on, getting it altered, walking out of the store with it, ordering it online or purchasing it over the phone. "Best-seller" is an understatement for that dress.

We remember poignantly a proud father who went prom shopping with his gorgeous daughter (size 2), determined to find her a dress that she deserved. The look in his eye when she stepped out of our fitting rooms wearing The Fish Dress is something we will always remember. Now, this is not a cheap dress, but the father had absolutely no reservations about purchasing it for her. Not only was his daughter an A-student and a part of prom court, she was also a good girl who gave him no trouble whatsoever. This dress was her reward for a job well done.

We are also happy to announce that The Fish Dress by Sherri Hill is being carried over to the fall season. Young women can still have it for their next special occasion by visiting either of our stores or our online store, But first, they have to be deserving :)

For our other loyal customers who purchased The Fish Dress, we'd love to see your pictures and hear your stories! Please e-mail us at or visit us on Facebook.
