A Standout Cocktail Dress

When it comes to cocktail dress, I like to hunt for unique pieces that stand out, and this little number takes the cake.

With all of the wedding and related events that usually follow along with summer, it’s nice to have a couple of go-to dresses on hand when I need them. Generally, I don’t mind spending money on a nicer dress if it’s one that I can get several wears out of. This one, while a little more formal, is also conservative enough that I could wear it to work. The longer sleeve and just-above-the-knee length contribute to its workplace acceptability. A dress like this is also perfect for a date night dinner (hint hint, Arnie), or special occasions such as a trip to the theater.

You can shop all of the outfit details below if you see something you like. Have a wonderful Wednesday; we’re halfway there!
