Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 20

Not gonna lie, this week has been tough. I know that I only have one and a half more days of work, but it’s not gonna be pretty. They really make you earn those days off.

Why get a Christmas Tree when you can wear one, right? Today’s Dress-tivus pick from Teri Jon by Rickie Freeman may be a good alternative. If I could afford this dress, I would skip the tree and make everyone open their presents around me. Sounds fun, right, or is that too much?

Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 19

Happy Dress-tivus once again! It’s your favorite 31 day celebration of designer dresses and inspiration for your holiday party attire!

Today’s pick from Oscar De La Renta is like a gift from Heaven! It’s so beautiful! My favorite dress so far. The sequin placement looks as if one just walked through a flurry of gold snow in a magic forest. I understand how corny that sounds, but I blame the beauty of this dress. It made me say that. PERFECTION!

It’s all downhill from here. This one can’t be topped, or can it? Stay tuned.

Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 18

Happy Dress-tivus and Happy Monday! You can’t get us down, world! Vacation is so close, and it’s only a week until Christmas! We got this!

I’m calling this Elie Tahari dress “The Peacock Dress.” It’s a fun reminder to be your bad-ass self, and to hell with what anyone else thinks. Do you just like the peacock, and proudly show those feathers!

Have a great day!

Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 17

Hope you’re having a good weekend. Normally I would bitch about it being Sunday, but since I only have to get through Thursday afternoon, it doesn’t seem all that bad.

Today’s Dress-tivus pick is by the British label, Goat. Not gonna lie, just heard of them a few minutes ago, but they’ve been around since 2001. At first glance, the line seems to have a retro ’60s/’70s vibe. I can definitely see Zooey Deschanel being the muse behind this label.

Anyway, this dress reminded me of a wrapped gift underneath the tree, so I just had to pick it. No brainer.

See you tomorrow!

Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 16

Hello, and Happy Saturday! It is Day 16 and we’re more than half way through with Dress-tivus. What’s Dress-tivus, you might ask? Just your favorite 31 day celebration of designer dresses that also serves as inspiration for your holiday party attire.

For today’s pick, I went with a sweater dress. I had to include at least one. This dress from Kate Spade ticks a lot of my favorite boxes. Shimmer, check. Pleats, check. Fun neckline, check! It’s basically an understated disco ball dress, which is a compliment in my book.

Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 15

We did it guys! We got through another week. All of my holiday parties are over, and only 6 more days until my vacation! Things are looking up!

Week Three of Dress-tivus is now upon us, and to kick it off, I give you this off-the-shoulder floral lace dress by Carmen Marc Valvo. This is another ’50’s inspired dress that makes my heart happy, and makes me wonder why can’t all dresses be like this and at a modest price point? GAP, Banana, J.Crew, I’m talking to you! Make it happen!

Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 14

Guys, it’s Day 14 of Dress-tivus! Can you believe it? If you are loving Dress-tivus, the 31 day celebration of dresses and inspiration for your holiday party attire, as much as I am, go back and take a look at my picks from Week Two. If you can’t get enough, you can always go back and relive the magic of Week One.

I had to pick a velvet dress. It’s not the holidays without velvet. This Tibi velvet bias cut dress is so wonderfully ’90’s. This could very well be a photo of a fresh faced Gwyneth Paltrow from 1995. Am I right?
