Cocktail Dress Two Ways

Here’s a dress I got some time ago at the fabulous The Dress Shop, here in Austin. I loved the color and the zipper and the fit. However, I found that it never got worn because it’s just a tad too dressy and sexy for most of the events I attend. What I really need to do is find more sexy dressy events to go to, but until then I figured I style in a more low-key way for daytime. All I did was throw on a loose-fitting cropped tank and a long necklace. The casual clogs top off the look. It’s not a dressy dress anymore, but rather a cool kind of rock and roll look for daytime, or a casual party. I don’t mind looking like I’m going to a casual party all day long. For those who want a layered cocktail look that flatters the waist, check out the beautiful Tanvii’s outfit here!

Oh, hey, and if you’re looking for a dress that fits into this dressy-to-casual area of things, check out the site eShakti. They will even make your dress or top or skirt to your exact measurements! For a limited time, you can even enter in the code TROPHY0811 and get $20 off! How’s that? Pretty cool.

    Lovely. I’ve been meaning to check out The Dress Shop.

  3. I love the loose top over dress idea, if only it worked with my shape!
    And I adore your hairstyle – I’ve been pondering having it cut just this short. (I’m a redhead too:) It would be a very drastic change though, so I’m a bit scared to have it done! :)
