Belle's B-Day Wish List: Part III

May 27, 2010

While I own several nice suits, the pieces in my wardrobe that get the most wear are the dresses.  I wear a dress almost every day, so it’s important to keep refreshing the supply.  Perhaps, if I win the lottery or some anonymous blog reader is feeling very generous (wink, wink), I could add one of these dresses to my wardrobe.

Karen Millen Colourblock Shirtdress ($350)

I featured this dress on the 10th Commandment not too long ago, and my love for the piece still hasn’t wavered.  The color comination is simple but divine.

Alberta Ferretti Dress (TheOutnet, $386)

What are Belle’s two favorite colors: purple and grey.  I love when I don’t have to make the tough choices.

Chris Benz Marilyn Dress (ShopBop, $1,075)

I looove Chris Benz.  He has a great eye for construction.  This dress is a bold shape and an even bolder color.  Just add a nude belt and look out world, here she comes.

Milly Samantha Dress (Bloomingdale’s, $315)

This dress is a bit more casual than the others, but it would still be perfect for a no-vote Monday or recess.  Add a colored necklace and some nud shoes for a polished but relaxed work outfit.

Moschino Cheap and Chic Crepe Dress (Net-a-Porter, $1,520)

This dress has a relaxed fit that would be perfect for those post fundraiser mornings when you’re feeling a little, uh…swollen and tired.  You could add a belt, but I would recommend a long necklace, or twelve.

    Completely unrelated question…. should I wear panty hose with skirts/dresses this summer? I’m an intern and still trying to figure appropriate work attire… thanks!

    I would thoroughly enjoy about a half dozen from Karen Millen store

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]

WFH Outfit: Denim and Black

Does anyone really know how to dress for a rainy February? It’s not winter. It’s not spring. Sweaters seem heavy. Just a shirt feels like you’ll be cold. It’s a puzzle.
