Tis the Season, Formal Season

With proms, fund-raisers, Greek formals and wedding season upon us, I thought now would be a good time to do a post in that regard.  And besides, I just love playing dress up…..still!  For this post, I chose a look that would be perfect for any of the above festivities.  I chose a dress that is short, plain in color, but busy in detail.  I am a huge fan of the backless look and the wide playful ruffle at the hem of this piece.  The deep V in the front is an added bonus. I found this dress on Revolve.com.  It really has become my go to for many things.  The varying price points and variety of styles make it worth clicking around and I always find something. The shoes, classic, pointed-toe Manolo’s.  I love the pop of silver with the all black look :)) I went simple but mighty with my jewelry and hair.  I did a pretty, messy ponytail to showcase the backless feature of the dress as well as to keep cool and comfortable while visiting and dancing at a crowded event.  As for the jewelry, I left it at my Cartier Love bracelet along with my everyday rings including a Sydney Evans cross, a Cartier Love ring and a ring from my mom. The “piece de resistance” is my treasured string of Chanel pearls that can be worn in any number of ways.  I chose to double wrap them into a choker allowing the remaining strings to cascade down my back. This was a relatively simple look to put together, but the final result is anything but simple!! I got dressed so quickly, I had a little time to play some pool in the lobby bar at the Gansevoort Meatpacking, NYC before a fun night out on the town! Remember, it doesn’t have to be complicated to be fancy, nor does it have to be all couture to be unforgettable!! Mixing and matching is all part of the fun in creating a great look!
