Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 31

This is it. We have reached the final day of Dress-tivus, the 1st annual 31 day celebration of designer dresses to help inspire your holiday party ensembles. Thank you so much for putting up with me through all of this. Daily blogging is no joke. Much respect to those who do this every day.

For my final dress, I wanted to choose one that said, “Peace out, 2017. I’m over you. I’ve met someone else. Don’t call. Don’t text,” and I feel this Oscar De La Renta dress fits the bill. At first glance, I thought the material was leather, but it’s actually 100% silk. Is it just me, or does the bodice have a Wonder Woman-like quality to it? Overall, I like how it straddles the line between badass and classy just like. . .Wonder Woman!

Happy New Year! Be safe! 2018 is going to be amazing!

Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 30

The penultimate day of Dress-tivus! Two more dresses and one more day until we get to kiss this year goodbye. I hope everyone is enjoying their time off and getting some much needed rest.

Today’s pick from Parker Black has a lot going on! There’s beading, sequins, fringe, and ostrich feathers! That’s right. I said ostrich feathers! I don’t think you could stop me from shimmying all night in this dress. LOVE!

Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 29

The final 3 days of Dress-tivus, your favorite celebration of dresses to help inspire your holiday party outfits! Honestly, I don’t know how anyone is going out on Sunday. It has been so bitterly cold this past week. I came home 2 hours ago and I still can’t get warm! As I write this, I have a fleece shirt under a onesie and a wool blanket over my lap.

However, if you don’t mind the arctic chill and still plan on venturing out for NYE, good for you. I’m loving today’s pick from Jenny Packham. It somehow manages to look both Art Deco and Studio 54 at the same time. That is impressive. Plus the color is gorgeous!

Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 28

Final 3 days of Dress-tivus, the bestest celebration of designer dresses to help inspire your holiday party wardrobe!

This dress needs no explanation. It’s a Carolina Herrera confetti dress, and what is more perfect for New Year’s Eve then this? NOTHING! It’s an actual party dress!

Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 27

It’s back to work for me today, I’m afraid. The vacation was very restful and much needed, so I think I can make it through the next 2 days. Just hoping I’ll be left alone to do some online window shopping. Fingers crossed.

Today’s Dress-tivus pick¬†from Jenny Yoo is very Studio 54. This dress just makes me want to go out and dance all night long, until I realize I’m a huge introvert and not even a zombie apocalypse, could coax me out of my apartment on New Year’s Eve.

See you tomorrow!!!

Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 26

Only 5 more days of Dress-tivus, the festival of designer dresses that provides inspiration for your holiday party attire. For these last five days, I’ll be focusing on New Year’s Eve dresses. My ensemble will most likely be a Care Bears Onesie or sweatpants, but for those of you plan to leave your house, I got you covered.

Today’s Dress-tivus pick is from St. John Collection. Naturally, I was drawn to the color of this dress. I love bold color, and it reminds me of a dress my Mom wore in the 80’s. Apparently this color was inspired by a painting by Cy Twombly. In my ignorance, I did not know who this was until 5 minutes ago. You learn something new every day. #themoreyouknow

Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 25

6 more days of Dress-tivus! Today’s pick is one I previously used in another¬†post, but this Carolina Herrera cocktail dress is just so classic and beautiful, I had to use it twice. This dress will last a lifetime. #flawless
