Take Me Home Tonight

Today is the 124th day in the Fashion Challenge. It truly amazes me that I have come this far, and I'm glad I decided not to quit, despite the fact that I miss wearing a few key pieces of my wardrobe. It's not a secret that I love fashion, so it has been fun to write this blog and I will probably keep it up in some form or another after the Fashion Challenge really does end... which I am predicting will be sometime in March.

Today's dress is a belted combo dress from Max & Cleo. This brand is not expensive, and the clothes are always so cute and on trend. The brand offers great dresses for work, as well as more casual weekend dresses. I think I bought this dress for around $50, and if you find Max & Cleo dresses on sale and in your size, you can usually save over 60% off the retail price. I love it when I can find a good bargain like that. Max & Cleo dresses are available online at stores like and Amazon, and in department stores like Macy's, Nordstrom, Dillards and many others.

I am also wearing black patent leather BCBGMaxAzria pumps with a bow to complement the top half of the dress. My best friend Katie just had her second child this week, and I know she loves purple, so I am thinking of her today. Chapin and I will probably stop by the hospital after work to meet her newborn son and see how she and her family are doing. I can't wait.

On a final note, if you know me at all, you know I love 80s music and movies. I am loving this new video from the Take Me Home Tonight soundtrack. I see the video, Atomic Tom's remake of the 1980s song "Don't You Want Me," pretty much everyday when I workout, as I like to put on VH1 videos while I read on the elliptical or bike. Note all the references to classic 80s movies like Ghostbusters, Can't Buy Me Love, Dirty Dancing and more. And Topher Grace does a decent Marty McFly. Enjoy!
