Daily Covet: Trina Turk Davani Dress

A friend of mine manages a small and chic boutique here in Middle America.

This past weekend, I visited just in time to take a gander at the latest shipment they got in. And boy am I glad I did!

I have my eye on this amazing LBD from Trina Turk with cool cutouts and POCKETS! I’ve purged my closet of a few old or unwearable LBDs, so I’m thinking that this dress is just the number I should add.

As you all know, the only thing I like better than little black sweats are little black dresses.

Daily Covet: French Connection Lolo Dress

I’m absolutely one for collecting little black dresses (and sweats ironically.)

Try as I might, most times the black one in my “try on” stack just looks the best. DUH!

Truth be told, I’ve been purging a lot lately and have donated much of my LBD collection.

So when I happened upon this French Connection Lolo dress, I was hooked immediately. I dig the cute cap sleeves that are more like petals and the deep V, which is the most flattering neckline for me. The slightly higher waistline is a major plus too for this vertically challenged girl. This is just the dress for my collection!

I don’t have anywhere particularly special to wear this now, but I know it won’t be long until this is just the right frock for something… er other.

Daily Covet: Jimmy Choo wild “kitten” pumps

These kitten pumps are slightly wilder than your average pump in their leopard yumminess.  Wild in print, and demure with a little key hole front, and topped off with a black bow.  Let’s not forget the statement-making patent upper.

I picture these pumps with J. Crews cafe capris in jewel tones come fall.  Or a simple LBD to the wedding we are attending in September.  Or jeans and a bold top for a girls’ night out.  Oh, the possibilities are endless….

Amazingly, these Jimmy Choos are on super sale IN MY SIZE too!

The all-occasion flip-flop from Tory Burch

I wear flip flops all summer, with everything from dresses to jeans to shorts.  My current flip flops are looking pretty ratty, and so it’s time to replace.  

I realize these are pretty pricey flip-flops, but look at the comfy padded footbeds and the cute, gold logo.  I can totally picture these with khaki shorts or an LBD (little black dress) and straw tote.

Perfect LBJ…little black jacket

Joyous’ stylist featured this adorable little black jacket  from BCBG this week.

This really is a “wear with everything” kind of jacket that you could literally keep FOR-EH-VER, if you are so inclined.

It looks great with flowy skirts, skinny jeans and high-waisted pants.  And I would probably also layer over an LBD with tons of necklaces in different lengths, for an entire little black look.

See for yourself, how trés chic and trés French this piece can really be, in the video from Joyous.com.
