Dress Like a Celeb

I'm always excited when I see a dress or pair of shoes from my own closet appear on a celebrity. I was even more excited when I saw that Ashley Benson, who plays Hanna on Pretty Little Liars, wore a dress I own to promote the show last month on Good Morning, America.

Here's a clip:

Dress: RVN Ribbed Turtleneck Slit Dress in Blue (no longer available)

Chapin is not a fan of turtlenecks, so I tend not to buy them, but I loved the body-con silhouette of this striped dress. I feel powerful, commanding and attractive whenever I wear it. The stripes are going up and down, which mean they slim the body and help elongate it. There's also a small yet sexy slit on the right side.

Shoes: L.A.M.B.

Since the dress is so long, and I'm so short, I opted for a pair of spiky black heels from the Gwen Stefani brand. I've had these shoes for years, so they are no longer available online.

Since today is February 15th, I will mention that yesterday was Valentine's Day! Chapin and I had a very quiet holiday. He cooked me a wonderful meal (snapper stuffed with crab, plus polenta with mushrooms), and we exchanged a few small gifts and cards. When you've been married 12 years, sometimes a relaxed day together is all you need to celebrate.
