I'm in another dressy dress today -- but this one cost me only $35!
Dress: Belle by Badgley Mischka Blue Metallic Brocade Vienna Dress
I bought the dress on Rue La La, and it's still available via Bluefly.com. The dress is beautiful and well-made, and a steal at $35. (It retails for $229.) Just remember that this brand tends to run large, so you should plan to size down.
I felt a little silly being so dressed up at work, but I always say that if clothes make you feel good, you should wear them... so that's what I did.
Many major retailers carry the Belle by Badgley Mischka line, including Dillards, Lord & Taylor and Saks Off 5th. The dresses are generally very chic and feminine.
Shoes: Valentino Rockstud Crisscross d'Orsay Pumps
These Valentinos are probably my favorite pair of shoes right now. They are just so gorgeous, and I really like the way they bring out the gold in the dress.
