Every once in a while, I like to do a fantasy shopping post. New Year's Eve is a great opportunity for such, but boy are the shops depressing. Either all the great designs have been snapped up already or designers sticking to more reserved designs out of economic fear. Considering how boring last fashion week was, I'm guessing the latter. But let's go back to pretending we have lots of money to buy pretty things.
Teal is an excellent alternative to traditional seasonal green, so I'm loving this lux velvet party dress from Thread Social and adorable strapless dress from Rebecca Taylor. Alexander Wang's navy sequin sheath is subtly sexy and will look great with a blazer.
If you're more of a super sexy girl, Herve Leger's gold bandage dress was made for you and your flat tummy. Temperly London has party frocks in bright tropical colors. Love the shoulder detail on the blue one and the texture on the yellow.
I seem to be obsessed with texture. Pleats and sheer layers from Christopher Kane, bright pleats and ruffles from Notte by Marchesa, and nude ruffles from Burberry Prorsum.For classic movie star glamour done right, I'm dreaming of gentle drapes and folds. Temperley London's embellished dress has extra glam. Look to Alexander Wang's draped satin jersey gown for classic color and cut, while Roberto Cavalli turns up the heat with a low neckline.
