My Party: The Dress

So, I’m throwing a party next week.

It’s on my list. And I really just want to throw a party.

I think a party is the perfect excuse to break my no-shopping resolution. And so, I need a little black dress.

Finding the perfect LBD is also on my list. But I have a dilemma.

If I had unlimited money, this would be my first choice, hands-down.

Dress3

Strapless Lace Belted Dress from Bergdorf Goodman, $1,995

Obviously, that’s not going to happen. And so I found this one.

Dress2

Donna Morgan Black Lace Zip Dress, Nordstrom, $64.97 {on sale!}

Well, that was the price yesterday. Today it has no price, because it’s sold out…but I might make a desperate attempt to find it at Nordstrom Rack. I’m kind of in love with it.

I also found this one yesterday:

16893-1 

Subtly Sublime Dress, Modcloth, $179.99

WHY DOES MODCLOTH ALWAYS SELL OUT OF THEIR CUTEST DRESSES AS SOON AS I FIND THEM!?

So, if all else fails, there’s always this one. Still super cute, but not perfect…

ASOS CURVE Slash Neck Lace Dress, Asos, $80.69

I think I need new shoes too…

Love you.

I'm obsessed with black lace on tan, but the sleeves are weird on the Nordstrom one--almost matronly? It's hard to beat the perfection that is the dress from Bergdorf's, but you should try White House Black Market--they have a ton of really cute black dresses. If I had to pick one out of these four, the Asos one is the sexiest/most awesome. Pair that with some sky high heels, and it'd be pretty darn gorgeous.

i love that picked some dresses with sleeves! Sometimes they can be hard to find, but you picked some really classy ones!

I love the Nordstrom and Modcloth ones - nothing beats a LBD!

You can also try White House Black Market, they always have adorable and classy cocktail dresses! - I'm excited to hear about your party!
