Cocktail Hour

The opportunity to don silk, chiffon and piles of baubles is the real reason I always RSVP to a cocktail party. Well, that, and the promise of libations swirling in a martini glass. I snagged this Karen Zambos Vintage Couture mini dress at a Shopbop warehouse sale two years ago. Yet, the "dress" hasn't made its soiree debut. The short hemline barely covers my tush, pushing the boundaries of decency. Cue the black pencil skirt to rescue me from social misconduct.

Outfit Notes: Karen Zambos Vintage Couture Mini Dress; Max Studio Skirt; Banana Republic Beaded Purse; Forever21 Ring; Opal and Diamond Ring; Forever21 Bracelets; Earrings courtesy of LuShae Jewelry

  8. I agree with sharonlei about the tights. Of course, color me biased because I am, quite possibly, the biggest fan that tights and leggings have. It's a gorgeous dress that you make look wonderful and I'm salivating in envy right now! You look like a very fashion-forward goddess. -Laurel Ann

  16. SO pretty. I am in love with all things "one-shoulder". And I LOVE your wish list on the side over there <---- . I have been searching for those perfect nude pumps for awhile now, and have yet to find "the ones". So cute, not to mention I am a DVF obsessor.

    Love the blog & thank you for the comment! I am following now :)

  17. That color is gorgeous, and the silk looks so luxurious! Would look great with a pair of black skinny jeans, or dark denim to make it less fancy. You definitely need to wear that mini dress/tunic more often Jessica!

    And those cuffs are from F21?! They look so expensive!!! I love Forever!!! :)
