[Evening Gowns] I like gowns gowns gowns...

[Before even beginning, can anyone guess where I got that title from?  Or what it might be referencing?  Think song and big name rapper.]

One of Nordstrom's signature events, the half-yearly sale, is currently ongoing for women.  Depending on what you're looking for, it can be a great way to pick up one of a kind items for a real steal.  Our reader (and consequently, cousin!) Furheen requested we find a few cocktail and evening gowns.  Guessing that when you're looking for cocktail and evening gowns, you're hitting a higher price point than most items in your closet, we've gathered up the most modest or modest-ifiable dresses currently on sale at Nordstrom.

My personal fave of this mix is this sequin jersey dress from JS Boutique (actually, check out the strapless Adrianna Papell dresses below...those are some exquisite beauties as well!) because for a Muslim woman like me, it's nice to be able to wear something so beautiful with as little modification as possible.  This dress covers your back nicely and isn't so low in the front.

With either a tank top layered under and a cardigan, or a plain long t-shirt, you've nicely tailored this evening gown into something more modest.

Just a note - the prices displayed are the retail price.  Click on each item to be taken directly to the Nordstorm site to see the sale price!
