Party Dressing Part I

It started out as a simple enough task – find a dress for under $100 for New Year’s Eve. After perusing the Internet between holiday layovers and food comas for several days I decided to abandon this quest and look for inspiration in separates at any cost.

[A GIANT, INTENTIONAL SIDE NOTE which can be skipped at your discretion.

If you are looking for a Herve Leger body con bandage dress you will have no problem finding a copy under $100. I saw several but my conscience (yes I do have one!) won’t allow me to post any here (because that trend is over). But if you’ve been doing Cross-fit/Zumba/whatever for months and are attending a party where you’ll have to see your ex and his new girlfriend/fiancée/whatever then MORE POWER TO YOU – go buy one immediately and smoke up the room.

Now is the time when I could go a rant about how ridiculously short dresses are in general and how little companies think about the needs of a woman in her 20s or older who is trying to maintain a professional yet exceedingly stylish lifestyle at a decent price. I just want the option, nay the freedom, to choose to cover my behind. But I DIGRESS…]

You become painfully aware of how slow fashion trickles down from the runway. The full, calf-length or midi skirts that walked Louis Vuitton and Prada runways in the Fall 2010 collections were mesmerizing but apparently not enough so for anyone other than fashion-forward Topshop to try.

Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 Ready-to-Wear

From this inspiration I crafted two looks which I suppose I will endeavor to find in the long term in thrift stores and sale alerts but I’m not optimistic about making the New Years deadline.

Look #1

This look:

Top – Urban Outfitters, Pins and Needles Scalloped Lace Piped Tank Top, $39

Skirt – Topshop, Premium Leather Skirt in light grey, $250

Gloves – Diane von Furstenburg, Windsor Lace Gloves, $120

Shoes – Jessica Simpson, Kendale Pump, $79

Look #2

This look:

Top – Dolce & Gabbana, Flannel and Lace Bustier, $663

Skirt – Topshop, Rust Calf Length Cupro Skirt, $100

Glasses – Jason Wu, Viola Spectacles, $278

Necklace – Juicy Couture, After Hours Multi Chain Floral Torsade Necklace, $90

Purse – Chloé, Aurore leather duffle bag, $1,800

Merry Christmas!
