…this to-die-for strapless cocktail dress by J. Crew (okay, when am I NOT obsessed with anything from J. Crew?). Anywho, this play on the tuxedo look capitalizes on the ongoing black+white and colorblocking trends, and manages to be devastatingly chic in its simplicity. I’ll have to admire it from afar though, as the Collection Framed Bow Dress is $398. *Sigh*
Notice how the rest of the model’s look is virtually bare (no jewelry and a hint of makeup)? That allows this dress to be the major statement.
Are you ready for cocktail season? Not sure what “festive attire” or “dressy casual” mean? Wondering how to shop chic on a budget? Then join me for Fashion Friday (presented by the Birmingham Public Library and Birmingham magazine) on December 7 at noon! The fashion workshop will be held in the Arrington Auditorium of Central Library, located at 2100 Park Place.
