Daily Covet: The embellishments this evening are…

Laundry by Shelli Segal, Satin Embellished-Neck Dress, lastcall.com $189

The menu item for my post-holiday parties is this gorgeous “starlight” blue satin dress.  And I’ll take the embellishments too.

After all, why woudn’t I?   An elegant mix of sequins and beads against this rich blue satin is my ticket to evening glamour.

And the best part?  The price is right!  (Although not as right as yesterday, when it was 40% off, instead of 25% off!)

Prefer it in black instead?  You’re in luck!

Daily Covet: Doing ‘Laundry’

I have an upcoming trip to Chicago in a couple of weeks and this is the worst time of the year to pack light.  It starts out freezing, becomes warm, and then becomes freezing again when the sun goes down.  This means you need at least two different wardrobes.

I also have a wedding to go to, so that means I need an occasion dress along, while I’m packing light.  The answer?  Chiffon.  And I normally H-A-T-E chiffon but I have had my eye on this dress for months.  I finally ordered it with the hopes that I will love it as much once it arrives and I put it on (NOT bloody likely)!

But I love the modern print and the long sheer sleeves, which makes it perfect for Spring and Fall.  I plan to throw on some pale pink suede pumps with it to play up the cooler weather factor and figured a tailored navy jacket might be another possible fix.

Cross your fingers for me because at this price, it’d be a front runner for sure!
