Splurge vs. Steal – Cocktail Dress

1 Nov

By Whitney

I saw this Lanvin dress in a magazine last month and just about gasped.  If I had a money tree (and actual events to wear things to) I would dress myself in Lanvin for everything.  The girly chic combo is right up my alley and this nude one shouldered ruffle number is amazing.  I love the idea of pairing it with black tights and black suede pumps for a wedding.  But most of us don’t have thousands to spend on a dress so this Halston Heritage version is a great alternative.  I love how the HH dress has black undertones under the ruffles.  Bring on the winter weddings and holiday parties!!
