The Hotness



Olcay Gulsen Wide Neck Dress - $500


It would be an understatement to say that I'm in love with this Olcay Gulsen dress, which is available through Shopbop (www.shopbop.com).  I love everything about it: the high slit, the wide neck and the silk jersey material.  I'd like to wear it out to dinner during this holiday season--this is how we do sexy in Atlanta.


Jennifer Lopez Faux-Fur Crop Jacket - $50


I'd rock it with this faux fur cropped jacket from Kohl's (www.kohls.com) and these stunning T-strap pumps from Dillard's (www.dillards.com).

Sam Edelman Scarlett Pumps - $200

What to Wear to a Fall Wedding?

I received a question from a dear friend on my Facebook page about what to wear to an upcoming wedding.   My immediate thoughts when I received the question were "Please let this be a Fall wedding!" and "Oooh, a fur cape?"  Yes, I'm really itching for an opportunity to wear a fur cape, and I think that evening weddings in the Fall will be the perfect occasions to wear one.  Here's my suggestion:


I love this strapless dress option by Adrianna Papell ($130, www.dillards.com).  Navy is a more sophisticated neutral than basic black, which guarantees that you'll stand out from the crowd.  Also, the criss-cross ruching under the bust and flowy pleats give the dress a feminine quality that keeps it from being too plain.


Touch Ups' play on the T-strap are a great complement to the navy color of the dress ($73.95, www.endless.com).  The gold-tone and the jewels will look great on darker skin tones.


And, finally, the (faux) fur cape.  I love this option from Robbi & Nikki ($325, www.nordstrom.com).  It's faux, which will keep you from being splattered in red paint, and comes with three removable brooches.  Sexy.

Saucy Office Wear

I try not to be too predictable in life, because I like to keep people guessing.  My date last night was amused by my apparently paradoxical ability to love both the color pink and football.  I told him I'm an enigma.  I am, however, fairly constant in one area of my life: I love appropriately sexy work outfits.

I think that this dress from The Loft (www.loft.com) and these Michael Kors pumps would make any of us feel office-saucy.  I think I may coin that...



Juliette Lace Cap Sleeve Dress - $89.50


You and I both know that those Kors by Michael Kors Gunmetal Python Print Peep Toe Slingbacks are spectacular.  They are definitely worth the $290 (www.stylebop.com).  The Tory Burch (www.toryburch.com) Robinson satchel is $550.

I just had to wipe a tear from my cheek due to the overwhelming admiration I have for this outfit.  Siiiiigh.  Ogle on, ladies.

What to Wear to an Evening Wedding

I accompanied one of my best friends to an acquaintance's wedding this weekend.  The ceremony was held in one of the oldest churches in downtown Atlanta, while the evening reception was held at a posh, yet understated, venue in trendy midtown. My friend wore a gorgeous black and tan chiffon dress with a sexy surplice neckline.  I chose a black Herve Leger inspired bandage dress with a low boatneck to flatter my d├ęcolletage.  We both sparkled in gold jewelry and wore subtle evening makeup.  Obviously, we were expecting to fit into an equally well-dressed crowd.  Imagine my horror when we spotted an attendee in black flip flops.  I know what you're thinking--"Maybe they were just sandals with a kitten heel."  No ma'am.  I know a flip-flop when I see one, and that was some beachy, college bathroom don't-step-on-the-shower-floor footwear.  I was shocked by that sight, but I nearly had a fit when I saw a guest in jeans.  Listen--I know we're all very casual these days. Heck, I'm all about rocking denim and sneakers to MJQ.  But, this is a wedding, folks.  This is the time to dress to the 9s and act like you've been there before.  Clearly this post is needed.  

When the bride looks like this:



then you may not wear these to her reception:

You shouldn't even wear this to the rehearsal dinner.

What are you, a hobo? Get some gosh darn shoes!

If you're not at the beach, get a real dress.

If you want an inexpensive, yet sophisticated option for attending an evening wedding, Spiegel (www.spiegel.c0m) has quite a few:




My point is that when you're an adult, you must put aside childish ways.  There is a time and a place for jeans and flip-flops.  A classic evening wedding in a metropolitan area is not one of them.

Love ya!
