I’ve been pretty good lately about getting rid of all the clothes I don’t wear and taking inventory of what my wardrobe is lacking. One of the areas in my closet that could seriously use some help is cocktail dresses. I barely have any. Anytime a function comes up, I find myself frantically shopping unsuccessfully and I end up bugging my friends at the last minute to see if I can borrow a dress. Now I’ve decided I need to start stocking up on cocktail dresses whenever I see them at a good price. I’ve gotten two lately that are the perfect timeless pieces. The first, from Forever 21 ($29.50!!!), is a gorgeous ivory lace with black grosgrain ribbon and going to look fabulous with black tights and heels, while the black one from J.McLaughlin is a fabulous year round LBD.
