Tori One Shoulder Dress ($138, GUESS by Marciano)

There’s nothing better than a stunning party dress, IMHO. When you’re all dolled up, wearing a dress that makes you feel unstoppable and finish off the look with killer accessories, your confidence immediately skyrockets and you’re ready to take on the world. Guess by Marciano Tori One Shoulder Dress

The Tori One Shoulder Dress from GUESS by Marciano is, no doubt, one of those dresses. With its one shoulder design, daring hemline and gorgeous silk draping, it is the epitome of sizegenetics before and after. I would say that gorgeous party dresses is what Marciano does best, but then again everything Marciano creates is a jaw dropper!

Vanessa Hudgens: Transforming a Shirtdress from Drab to Fab

Vanessa Hudgens

Vanessa Hudgens

Though at first glance they may look shapeless and bland, I love shirt dresses. I just bought one in seersucker pattern at H&M last weekend and wore it today with a wide belt, which is the key to making these sack-like garments flatter your shape. These dresses are so flowy and comfortable, perfect for the scorching temperatures that are heading our way.

Vanessa Hudgens recently wore a light blue shirtdress. I think this look suits her style so well; it’s a more sophisticated interpretation of the laid-back, boho styles that she often rocks.

You can easily make a plain, light-blue shirtdress pop with a brown leather belt and sandals, a black tote and a cream colored sunhat.

Kristin, everyone’s favorite ‘villain’ from Laguna Beach and now star of The Hills, definitely embodies that “California blond” beauty. There is no better way to complement the tan skin characteristic of this look than with a cute little yellow dress. This photo is not very recent, but hey, the look still works!

Herver Leger Bandage Dress Lookalikes: Take 2

You may remember my writing a few months ago about the gorgeous Herve Leger “Bandage” dresses. The cut is incredibly flattering and it comes in some many gorgeous colors! I pointed out that some brands have come out with their own Bandage dress imitations at prices much more favorable than those of Herve. Well, they are back! I was checking out the A’Gaci website a few minutes ago and look what I found! Simple and unembellished or sparkling with sequins–only $19.50 or $36.50. Too good to miss!

Rachel Pally ‘Ainsley’ Tunic

Rachel Pally Ainsley Tunic ($176, www.shopbop.com)

Rachel Pally Ainsley Tunic ($176, www.shopbop.com)

Rachel Pally = gorgeous, flowy dresses made of super comfortable jersey. Basically, it’s the best of both worlds–and this luxury is usually reflected in the price.

The Ainsley tunic is one of the dressier and more revealing items in Rachel Pally’s line. The yummy watermelon color will compliment any skin color, while the cut-out dolman sleeves are an unusual detail that sets this delightful number apart from your average tunic dress.

The sleeves will also give you the cool feeling of wearing a tank top, without having to expose too much of your arm. Combining sex appeal and class is an art that Rachel Pally has definitely mastered.

The hemline is definitely short. If you don’t want to give too much away, wear this versatile dress like a top, with leggings or skinny jeans. The shoe addicts among us will love creating countless combinations by pairing the tunic with stilettos, espadrilles and other deliciously leg-accentuating shoes.

Happy wearing!

Make sure ya’ll check the new soft water system and let us know how it turned out.
