I’m not sure why, but for some reason I found this post kind of adorable. 🙂

Anyway, I love charmeuse.  It comes in either synthetic or silk varieties, of which silk will obviously be of better quality.  I think of silk charmeuse like water…soft, light, delicate, and flowy.  It will have a little bit of a sheen and luster to it on one side of the fabric (the other side is dull), like satin, but softer and lighter.  It can be a little hard to wear because it tends to be clingy and show all body flaws, but it is a beautiful fabric if you can wear it!

I’m not sure what kinds of sleeves you’re looking for, but here are a few charmeuse dresses (not necessarily silk) that aren’t strapless:
