Sheer Brilliance

This Karen Millen dress takes "subtlety" to a new level; the sheer panel in front instantly turns it from sexy weekend wear to chic corporate wear.

Dress: Karen Millen Pencil Dress with Sheer Cut-Out

The dress feels great on, and it's made of a slippery, vinyl-like material that doesn't easily wrinkle -- and that's essential in such a fitted pencil dress. The material stretches, too, so I went down a size. I'm so glad I could try the dress on at the Karen Millen store at Lenox Square Mall the last time I was there.

I was also really drawn to the print; it reminds me of driving in the city on a dark, rainy night, when all the lights outside tend to blur as you speed by.

Shoes: Jimmy Choo Luna 100 Glitter Peep-Toe Pumps

These shoes -- in all their glitter glory -- are a nod to the more laid back vibe I feel when wearing this dress. After all, it's never good to take yourself too seriously.
