A Rose By Any Other Name...

It's been a long week already, so today I wanted to shake things up with a really vivid outfit: a hot pink dress with the lipstick to match.

Cynthia Steffe Charlotte Color Block Dress in "Exotic Rose"

This chic Cynthia Steffe dress is still available in black and white from Amazon - and for only $100! You can always find great deals on clothing and shoes at Amazon. If you are a price sensitive shopper like me, you will want to check out Amazon whenever you buy something. There's even an app for that.

Part of the reason I like this dress so much is the black going down each side. The black lines are very slimming! I think that's why colorblocking is so popular; many of the styles are designed to help you look more slender, and I think this particular design is very effective.

Kate Spade New York Licorice Pumps in Black and Gold

I saw a little girl eyeing these pumps today, most likely due to the sparkle of the gold flecks. That's part of the reason I love Kate Spade; her feminine style is often combined with little flourishes that bring you right back to your childhood.
