The Find: A Work-Cocktail Dress

We’ve all been there: You have a work conference attend and you need something to wear to cocktail hour.  It must be packable, fit beautifully, be easy, not fussy, and be work appropriate.  What if I told you that that dress could also cost you $30?

This Carmen Marc Valvo dress, from his diffusion line Carmen, is fantastic.  It has a sleek faux-wrap look, a cool clasp to accentuate the waist, and comes in three gorgeous colors (black, navy, red).  A simple, elegant dress for just $30.  I can hardly believe it myself.

To jazz it up for a cocktail hour, choose a cool (but not over the top) earring, a large, slouchy clutch and a simple sandal.  All done.

    If you like this style, this dress is very similar to the Anne Klein faux wrap dress that Macy’s usually has in several colors/prints, and usually for around $40. I own it in several patterns and colors, and it is a classic!
