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 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 23

Hello! I hope you are all now safely on vacation for the next few days! Enjoy your time off and do something nice for yourself.

As always, Happy Dress-tivus to all! Today’s pick from Valentino, I hope is inspired by those old-fashioned holiday hard candies that could easily take out most of your teeth. I doubt it, but a girl can dream.

Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 22

Happy Friday! We have entered into our final full week of Dress-tivus. If you’re new to the blog, welcome. Dress-tivus has been a 31 day celebration of dresses that also serves as inspiration for your holiday party wardrobe. If you like what you see, you can always check out the first 3 weeks here.

Today’s pick is a modern and mini version of Holly Golightly’s cocktail dress from Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It’s even by the same designer that made her costumes for the film, Givenchy.¬† Love this dress. So classic!

Dress-tivus For the Rest of Us: Day 21

It’s here. . .Thursday! We made it! I have until 1pm, and then I’m a free woman for 6 days!

We have now completed three weeks of Dress-tivus. Honestly, I’m stunned that I’ve followed through with this. 10 more days to go for this dress celebration/inspiration for your holiday party ensembles. Today’s pick matches how I feel inside knowing that I am almost free from the chains that bind me aka work. This A.L.C Sequin Mini Dress would be a great pick for New Year’s Eve, you know if you have $995.00 to blow on a dress. If so, respect and jealous.
