Johnny Mari dresses are always a knockout. It is a boutique which houses the hottest prom dresses in the Michigan area. Johnny Mari is strikingly refreshing from Windsor and large corporate powers such as JC Penny, Dillards and Macy’s, all of whom practice the George Rtizer’s concept of McDonaldization; which can certainly be applied to formal wear: Efficiency, Calculability, Predictability, Control, and a Unifying Culture. As a result of this process, you get bland, cookie cutter styles which never approach the edge, let alone the cutting edge. Johnny Mari upsets this process, as each dress is exclusively made in a few sizes and cannot be ordered on a website. This can be a Debbie Downer for a fashion conscious, tradition defying bride, but a miracle for any woman who wants to be a knockout at a wedding, club, or any formal event.
I remember simply being blown away when I first walked into the store. Think of Dancing with the Stars fashion without a plunge in the savings. Dresses are available in every color and a truly rhine stone and sequin match made in formal fashion heaven. Dresses are available in mermaid, trumpet, a-line, empire, sheath or princess in breath taking vibrant colors, sequin, and stones, some are a sheer nude color with colorful sequins and stones while other dresses are multi-colored which echoed the many spirits of Nicki Minaj’s alter egos’ such as Harajuku Barbie. Many of the dresses are so cutting edge; they can be worn with a cropped, motor cycle jacket, cropped jean jacket, or a J Crew cashmere button up sweater for those who have a not so formal mentality to formal wear.
They have white dresses, which could melt any bride’s heart, while some wedding-appropriate dresses are cutting edge, like a beautiful white sweet heart neckline mermaid dress with gold rectangular sequins which is present in the store. My wild, fashionista instinct desired to consume everything; it’s just as satisfying as collecting books on classical theory and paintings. All dresses are truly made from love, and they are all a work of art.
Johnny Mari also has beautiful hair pens and rhine stone hair combs in which Davis Bridal can charge a whopping $150.00, however, Johnny Mari prices range between $10 to $40 dollars.
I had an event approaching, and I could not get my consciousness away from this beauty. I received compliments and stares upon every turn, and I felt truly amazing. If you are a curvy person such as myself, Johnny Mari Dresses fit a curvy woman’s body fabulously. I am currently searching for the perfect wedding dress. I will continue to stop frequently, since the shipment of dresses, to my upmost surprise, seems to ALWAYS be a surprise. This is the best money I have ever spent on a formal dress. Johnny Mari is located on 694 West 14 Mile Rd at Oakland Mall.
