Glitter and Organza

Dressing up for work in a beautiful new dress is the best way to start a week.

Outfit Details

Dress: Kay Unger Navy Organza Glitter Fit and Flare Dress

I was drawn to the dress because of the neckline -- I just love how a square neckline shows off your cleavage in a more conservative way-- as well as the beautiful navy and glitter organza fabric.

You can find the dress at Bluefly and Saks, but only limited sizes are still available.

I secretly refer to the Kay Unger brand as the "mother of the bride brand," because most dresses look extremely upscale and are modestly tailored. Every once in a while, I will see a Kay Unger dress -- like this one -- that I would wear.

Unfortunately, Kay Unger dresses are extremely pricey. Today's dress cost around $500, but I nabbed it for $99 at I just had to have it, and that's a pretty good deal.

You can find Kay Unger dresses online at these and other retailers:

You can also rent Kay Unger dresses on Rent the Runway.

Sandals: Jimmy Choo Claudet 100 Lamé Sandals

Chapin and I had a relaxing weekend, which is a good thing, since I'm gearing up for a very busy week at work. We treated ourselves to breakfast at West Egg Cafe on Sunday, and Chapin made me dinner Saturday night: roasted Branzini (a whole fish) with a tomato and pesto salad. Yum! (He was so proud he took the picture below. Isn't he cute?)
