I watched a bunch of Glee episodes last night, so today I have Lionel Ritchie's "Hello" stuck in my head. (The last one out of the bunch I watched was the episode where Mr. Schuester asks the group to find some songs with the "Hello" theme.) So that explains the title of today's post. I have discovered Glee much later than many other people, mainly because I didn't fall in love with the pilot episode, and I find Mr. Schuester to be an annoying goody-two-shoes. But I have gotten more into the series of late, and have added the actor who plays Puck to my "Top 5 List." He reminds me of Brad Pitt: The Early Years! :)

Anyway, the outfit, on this Day 101, is from one of my favorite brands, BCBGMaxAzria. The BCBGMaxAzria Long-Sleeved V-Neck Dress with Mesh Detail is unique to my closet because it is one of my few long-sleeve dresses. It has been so cold in my office this Winter -- the temperature literally drops about twenty degrees once you cross over from the outer office area, where all the cubes are, into my office -- and since we are expecting snow flurries in Atlanta today, I thought it would make a good choice. This dress also goes great with my new Jimmy Choo Izzy Pumps!

I also wanted to call out a few of my favorites from Paris Fashion Week, going on now. Fashion Week often reveals clues as to some of the trends we will start to see in our stores soon. My favorite trend is what they are calling "liquid metal" in bold, rich jewel tones like red and sapphire. I love this dress form the Armani show:

Here is another favorite from Christian Dior. I love how the styles from the 1940s and 1950s are really starting to come back more and more. The 50s (Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief and Rear Window... fabulous) is definitely my favorite era in terms of style. I also love the Barbie Doll makeup and hats from this show.

Finally, I love two beautiful dresses from Elie Saab's show. You might remember it was Elie Saab who designed Halle Berry's Oscar dress the year she won for Monster's Ball. (I just knew that fact... I didn't even have to look it up!)
