Sequin-Embellished Crepe Dress

Sequin-Embellished Crepe Dress

Although I feel we’ve featured a lot of sequinned pieces lately, there was something about this Vince number I couldn’t quite escape from posting about. Perhaps it’s the relaxed, t-shirt style fit, or the always classic, sparkling gold sheen. Whatever the case, I think this tunic is a perfect style for any body type, and is an instant classic paired with opaque black tights and booties, perfect for you guessed it, New Years Eve! Dress up with a top knot and ornate chandelier earrings, or down with a mens watch and a clutch outfitted in rugged hardware. I mean, you really just can’t go wrong with this dress.

Whatever you wear out tomorrow night, be sure to have a happy and safe New Years! Thanks for making 2011 our busiest blog year yet. We’ll see you back here in 2012.

West Village Fete Dress

West Village Fete Dress

Thinking about wearing this dress on New Years Eve? Color me green with envy. It’s been a while since I’ve written about a one-shoulder dress, so let’s drool over this one together in this week’s edition of Modcloth Monday. This dress, which pays homage to one of my favorite neighborhoods in NYC, incorporates a simple but chic sheath shape with a solid sequin weave throughout. The gorgeous emerald-peridot shade makes for a more subdued dazzle, whereas a gold or silver solid sequin dress may be for the more bold to pull off, but the green really gives you some room to play with shiny accessories and shoes. You may very well find me on NYE in this dress, paired up with metallic peep-toe pumps and elegant drop earrings. Only if Santa brings me a Modcloth gift certificate, that is.

Donna Morgan V-Neck Paillette Sheath Dress

It may be barely past Halloween, but I’m already looking ahead for holiday parties, shopping and all the fabulous outfits to plan for. Coated in shimmering paillettes (sequins’ sparkly older sister), this glittering sheath dress has a slim fit, v-neck, and 3/4 length sleeves, which gives it an overall classy feel, making it atop my holiday wardrobe wishlist. I can already see this pairing well with dark British Racing Green nail polish and plum lips, or black suede pumps and simple onyx jewelery, what about you?

Champagne Fountain Dress

Champagne Fountain Dress

Mark Twain once said, “Too much of anything is bad, but too much champagne is just right.” Touché, my man. This week’s Modcloth Monday pick is a bubbly, frilly, toast-worthy frock inspired by one of my favorite beverages: champagne. Subtly flavored in a chic ivory-vanilla, smooth juxtaposed by ruffles, separated by a thin sequined belt, I love the balance of flirty and classic style. To make your ensemble truly dazzle, try pairing the dress with onyx or pearl accents. Cheers!

Red & Black Sequin Cowl Dress

Sequin Cowl Dress

Honor World AIDS Day and sport red today. Red looks good on almost every skin tone, and while we love burgundies and merlots (literally and figuratively speaking), there’s a soft spot in our hearts reserved for all things fire engine red; shoes, lipstick, gems, and the like. Be the lady in red in this slinky number from Topshop. Embellished with sequined shoulders and a draping cowl neck, this dress packs in the perfect amount of funky, sleek and affordable all in one.
