Why does it always seem like you can never find anything to wear when there’s an important event or a special occasion? It’s as if your closet purposely conspires against you, and all of your favorite stores suddenly seem to have a dearth of acceptable inventory.
At least that’s how I used to feel. These days, I have a little rule for myself: whenever I ever spot a great party dress I just go ahead and get it… even if I don’t have anyplace to wear it anytime soon. So far, it’s worked well for me, and I no longer have to scramble around at the last minute whenever I have to go someplace “fancy”. I spotted this dress at Banana Republic (on the clearance rack for just $25!), and I immediately snatched it up. My favorite features are the jeweled belt and the tiny pleats around the neckline.
I can’t wait to take it out for a spin. Cocktails anyone?
I’m a career gal, living in NYC while attempting to climb the corporate ladder one fashionable footstep at a time. I always dreamed of a glamorous job in the fashion industry, but instead I became a technology geek and now spend most of my days talking bits and bytes with IT Directors. Even though khakis and polos are the standard uniform within my industry, I prefer dresses and high heels. The only fashion rules I follow are to have fun and keep it classy… everything else is fair game! I look forward to sharing both my on- and off-duty looks with the Curly Nikki community each week. I am literally ALL OVER the web, and you can connect with me via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, and Pinterest.
