Solid Gold

I think today's dress would be equally at home on a dance floor as in an office setting: It's gold, fitted and fabulous. It's hard to see in the photo, but the dress actually has a gold/black pebble pattern. I decided to play up the gold color by pairing the dress with gold sandals and gold eye makeup. (I guess the name of today's blog post -- Solid Gold -- is truly fitting.) I did a bold lip color for an extra pop of color.

Although the hubby will be the first to say I'm too dressed up for work, I don't agree. I'd rather be overdressed than under dressed anyway.

Today's Outfit Details:

Dress: Diane von Furstenberg Hadlie Two Gold Sheath Dress

The dress is a typical sheath dress, although I will say that the fit is slightly off. The top of the dress won't sit correctly on your chest unless your shoulders are pulled back, and although there is a lining, you will definitely need to add Spanx underneath.

Since the dress was so fitted, I sized up and am wearing a size six, which was the right call. DVF tends to run small, and I don't take any chances when a garment is fitted since I am definitely curvy.

You can buy this dress at a variety of online retailers, and the price has been majorly reduced almost everywhere. Here are just a few places to shop:
