Nieves Lavi Silk L/S Print Dress
Available at: PinkMascara
Just when you think you've more or less got a hold on the whole December holiday party situation, you glance at the calendar and realize that New Year's Eve is sneaking up on you yet again. How many different party looks can one person really be expected to come up with in a single six-week time period? Why not use one of those party situations to take a break from the jewel tones and standard LBDs and instead opt for one of the black and white graphic print dresses that are slowly taking over the stores. These super hot dresses stand out in a sea of everyday party frocks, yet retain a dressy edge thanks to luxurious fabrics and evening appropriate silhouettes.
It was love at first sight when I stumbled upon this Silk Print Dress by Nieves Lavi (right). The black on white floral print is fresh and fun, but it's the super deep v-neck and stunning drape of the 100% silk construction that makes this party dress special. Walk into any party in this dress and you are guaranteed to turn every head in the room.
For a more traditional, yet no less stunning, party dress you can't beat Diane von Furstenberg. This printed silk chiffon "Mikhail" dress features a slightly daring keyhole opening in the middle of the ribcage. This picture doesn't do it justice-- click on the pic to view a larger photo and you'll see how the keyhole detail really makes the dress.
