I'm trying out my first dress from the Belle by Badgley Mischka line today. It's a little dressy for work, but anything goes on this rainy Monday. I scored a great deal on the dress at Dillards.com. If you're patient, you will see that the department store does some heavy discounting on clearance items every few months. I've nabbed dresses from designers like Erin Fetherston and Eva Franco for under $50. The deals are out there -- you just have to know where to look.
I was drawn to this dress not just because of its unique tiered lace design, but because of the mesh fabric in the lower part of the dress. I've been wanting to try a dress with a peek-a-boo element ever since I saw Gwyneth Paltrow in a hot pink Michael Kors with a see-through neckline at the 2013 Met Gala.
I had my nails done over the weekend, and I think it's cool how the deep maroon (CND Vinylux Nail Polish in Dark Dahlia) almost perfectly matches the dress. It's my first time trying out this nail polish brand, and we'll see how long it lasts. I love dark nail polishes in deep colors that are almost black, yet still have some element of color.
