This is just a well balanced dress: the nondescript gray stays visually interesting thanks to the criss-crossing panels, the fitted silhouette is tamed by a demure hemline, the cap sleeves are eye-catching but not costume-y. It’s tasteful and versatile, More
First off, after going from $1,690 to $507, this Proenza Schouler t-shirt bustier dress is practically a Score. That’s a 70% discount on a dress so minimal it might as well not exist… in other words, it’s not going to look dated unless the entire population unites in an explosion of floral, plaids and volume such that colorblind golfers lord over the universe.
So I’ve been doing a lot of holiday cocktail coverage, and amidst all my focus on different styles, fits and pricepoints of cocktail dresses, I’ve kinda neglected cocktail accessories. Then today I found this perfect confluence of my two recent preoccupations: More
When the holidays wind down and you’re sick from the dozens of short, flirty, sparkly cocktail concoctions that friendless bloggers have recommended ad nauseum (sorry), you’ll start thinking about dresses that are just a little more sophisticated. Dresses like this More
Cocktail madness continues. You know what’s a really solid bet for looking glamorous-in-good-taste at a cocktail obligation? Start with a simple sleeveless sheath that boasts a modest neckline and a knee-skimming hem then overlay its pale tawny fabric with black lace. Pro-tip: black lace over More
So cocktail gear is fun and great–and a solid LBD is all but critical during the holidays–but I like this Minimarket dress for a few more reasons than its seasonable cut. Namely, I like that its More
A kind reader contacted me about all this holiday dress coverage to share her appreciation for the focus on dresses in the (mostly) under $100 category because, as she put it, she only wears them “once or twice” and then, after the holidays those dresses gradually move toward the back of the closet until they are completely forgotten. I understand why this would be the case with dresses in certain textures that are pretty much worn exclusively during the holidays (velvet, for example, or… uh, dresses with reindeer on them), but More
I feel like sort of a dick for this one, because the dress that Miranda Lambert wore to “the Grammy Nominations Concert Live” (a dubious event title if ever there was one) isn’t a disaster in and of itself. But what takes this from “yikes, that is one ugly dress” into “was she high?!” shock and awe is More
It’s time again for another holiday dress round-up, at the moment we’re featuring some great cocktail wear for fuller figures. Flattering and versatile throughout, in seasonable textures and colors, holiday-friendly cuts and styles, and all under $200, though per usual, we tried to favor frocks under $100. With lots of LBDs and lace, of course. More
Amidst all this Holiday cocktail dress madness, I’ve been looking for affordable dresses (ideally ones that have been marked down from not-so-affordable price points), but every now and again I’ve come across something that just can’t be replicated on the cheap. Namely, More
This Kova & T LBD looks pretty plain with its black scoopneck style, but check it out from the back: More
