Hey Ombre!

If you are limited as to funds and want to invest in some classy designer evening wear, it’s a good idea to go for something that isn’t too, too trendy. After all, you’ll want to be able to wear it again and you don’t want to have a neon sign across you blaring ‘2009’ to the crowd when you wear it in 2015.

All the same, you want some interest to the gown that will look spectacular. What’s the point in getting just another very ordinary dress if you’re spending big bucks on it?

And this lovely Nicole Miller ombre dyed gown is where I find the perfect balance point.

Nicole Miller Evening Gown The lines are simple, classic, and elegant, but the olive to teal ombre dyed silk fabric (okay, there’s 8% spandex for shaping, but the other 92% is silk) is dramatic enough to make a real entrance for years to come.

And years to come is how long you’ll smile to yourself about the price, too! The suggested retail price may be $530.00, but it’s on sale at eDress Me for a mere $372.00!

What’s 20% of Superfantastic?

Bluefly is having a 20% off sale on all their dresses right now. Vera Wang, Marc Jacobs, Sweet Pea, Betsey Johnson…and the list goes on for a long time. So what design caught my eye? That would bethis one by Nicole Miller:

Nicole Miller Silk Feather Dress The feather print in shades of blue and black is embossed on pique silk, and the dress is fully lined in chiffon. It sounds as light and soft as the feathers printed on it. The back is low-cut and shaped with a bit of smocking while the front is held in place by slender halter straps on a ruched U neckline. Just slip it over your head, accessorize to taste, and have a great time!

Originally this dress would have cost you $275.00. Bluefly normally sells it for just $165.00. But if you take advantage of the dress sale going on now, you can get this fabulous, filmy designer party dress for a mere $132.00, or 52% off the retail price.

Also at Bluefly, fans of Bravo’s hit series Project Runway (and I know I’m not the only one who wants to take Tim Gunn home with me) may be interested to know that Season 4 winner Christian Siriano’s new line is currently available at Bluefly for ‘up to 40% off’…though the only sales I saw were all 20% off. My verdict? Fierce, of course!

Dress Me, Nordstrom!

Nordstrom is having a huge pre-season Fall sale right now. Instead of waiting until after the season is over and then digging for treasures in the limited styles, sizes, and colors other people passed up, you can get what’s happening nextseason , choose between all the styles, all the sizes, and all the colors before anyone else gets to them. Women, men, children, petites, plus sizes, it’s all on sale right now.

Here’s an example of what you can find.

Nicole Miller Cap Sleeve Stretch Dress This adorable cap sleeved jersey dress is pretty as a picture in magenta, and is also available in brown. On August 4, the price will be $220.00, but until then you can get it for just $129.90.

Of course, not everyone is a size 4. That would be boring, even if it were possible. That’s why I’ll be more likely to be getting this glorious black and white scroll printed blouse by Foxcroft available in Women’s sizes up to 24.

Foxcroft Ribbon Trim Scroll Print Blouse Made of pure cotton trimmed with ribbon at the cuffs, this shirt is pure style. After August 4, it will be an already great price of $68.00. Right now, though, you can get it for the bargain basement price of just $44.90.

<>Look, whatever your age, size, or gender, there’s a good chance Nordstrom has something fabulous on sale for you to wear right now. Get there before August 4, and get a jump on the crowd for great fashion!
