Let’s Talk About Cocktail Dresses

This weekend, I’m going on a one-day cruise to nowhere and was told that I need a cocktail dress. I have a few from weddings I’ve attended, but they seem so… so…. BORING. I DO have a little black dress (because every woman does, right?), but isn’t a cruise supposed to be fun? I’m looking for some color!!!

Naturally it SNOWED here this morning, so it threw a wrench in my mall plans. My daughter’s school has been delayed a few hours so I have to wait to take her to school before I hit up the shops.

This is what I’m thinking about:

Diane von Furstenberg ‘Rilia’ Silk Dress

Elie Tahari ‘Malia’ Metallic Silk Sheath Dress

Elizabeth and James Silk Crepe Strapless Dress

Dusk Stretch Satin Dress – I caved with one black. 🙂

Trina Turk ‘Princess’ Dress

Leifsdottir ‘Eden’ Sateen Dress

    I concur. The Tahari is stunning! I like all of them, but I think Tahari fits the bill for the occasion.
