Mango Fitted Drape Dress ($60)

With its exaggerated neckline and ruched styling, this dress is a fairly spectacular copy of DVF’s Bentley dress (summer colors on sale, here).  It also comes in navy if lipstick red isn’t your forte.

If you like the ruching, but you aren’t crazy about the neckline, try this berry-colored Evan Piccone dress with waist detail.  I also liked this circle-printed KamaliKulture dress, which is odd, because I usually don’t like that line.

Plus-size: This wine-colored Melissa Massey is a bit pricey, but it’s so worth it.  Fall wedding?  Look no further.  Petite: Try this purple Ralph Lauren with a cowl neck.

    Has anyone seen the Mango dress in red in person? As a blonde, I can’t do the orange-reds well, but I love the dress!

      I just purchased it in navy today. I wasn’t really paying attention but I believe I it erred on the orange-ish end if not a fairly true red.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
