Zara Leopard Trench (similar here and here) |  Bebe Knit Ruffle Dress |  Fur Black Wrap 
t+j Designs Clutch, Bangles, and Earrings (to launch in October)

We went to a wedding last weekend and I had an outfit meltdown.  I couldn't decide what to wear and sat in my closet with a look of despair.  I know it sounds ridiculous but even with a closet full of stuff, all my gear was for a nighttime or summer wedding and I wasn't prepared for a daytime wedding/reception.  I have been so busy working on our jewelry line; I didn't pre-plan my outfit as I usually do.  My lovely husband came to the rescue and chose this ruffled Bebe dress, which I purchased 2 years ago and still had the tags on :).  It's similar to the Herve Leger dresses except for the price point and the fit.  I happened upon it in New York while my husband was at our favorite bagel shop waiting in line and I went into a Bebe.  It's tight fitting so it's a dress I need to feel body ready for.  I tend to get cold so my fur black wrap was a perfect accessory to warm myself up and cover a little of the front.  

Since I purchased my dress a couple of years ago, I wanted to give some suggestions of black dresses that would be perfect for a night out.  All of these are $150 and under!  Love the details and each one has it's own sexiness.



Happy Friday!  And don't forget, today is the last chance to use the code NEWARRIVALS for 10% off your total at http://tplusjdesigns.com

  1. I love the Ashanti dress! And you look gorgeous -- fall daytime weddings are tricky but you did a phenomenal job.

  13. Daytime events are tricky to dress for, I feel like you don't want to go overboard but you don't want to look like you are going to an office meeting. Very nicely done, and glad your husband rediscovered the dress.

  17. I popped over from SkippySays, and wow, you have impeccable style! I love the wrap on top of the trench, and then the sweet ruffles of the dress. Daytime weddings/receptions are so hard to dress for, I blogged about that very issue back in July. Have a great weekend.
