shaken, not stirred – the cocktail party dress guide . . .

cocktail party season is upon us.  you ready?  me either!  i know.  we really need to get busy.

what are you going to wear to that party that you know you have this year and if you wait for the invitation, you will be in all-out stress mode and buy something that looks horrible at the last minute?  i know.  i know.

luckily for you i was able to scrape up some awesome options at prices we can all afford!  yay!

i highly [read “HIGHLY”] suggest you order a couple of options and try them on. that is the only way to make internet shopping work.



this asymmetrical top and velvet skirt by mango is. killing. me.  so gorgeous and chic.  combine this with some single strap sandals like these and a great clutch like this.  throw your gramdmom’s mink stole over your shoulders.  super chic.


for a super hip but way more casual affair, this sequined tunic (or this one) over a slammin’ pair of leather(ette) pants like these????  with the single strap sandal like this one???? with a sexy little clutch like this???? are you kidding me?  you will shut. it. down.  word.


i am not sure you can handle this jumpsuit.  srsly, this is so smoking’ hot, i could die.  and, the halter neck and sleek lines of a jumpsuit are so forgiving that you are sure to look like the long and lean fashion machine that you are.  maybe a biker jacket like this thrown over your shoulders and some classic black pumps like these.  what about a mock croc clutch like this for a little edge?  sweet.


tell us what you think!!!
