A whole bunch of party dresses

10

I know I am a big proponent of the party in a top, but there are times a girl just wants to throw on a dress to go to a fête, and who am I not to facilitate such a thing? There are quite a few sleeveless numbers here; I like to wear them with snug cardigans or a shrunken leather jacket. As for what I’m wanting, I like all the slip-dresses I’ve been seeing, but they’re often quite clingy; this one has a bit of movement, which is nice.

Lace just immediately ups your game.

A nicely slinky velvet wrapdress.

Soft and drapy, in a nicely feminine way.

There’s a lot going on here, but I’m pretty sure it all works.

I’d love to wear this to a party; it’s sexy, but also just a lot of fun.

Another slipdress with a forgiving silhouette.

Nicely sophisticated, and the mustard-y hue is great.

Another one I’d love to own: it’s just so feminine, but also really sleek.

A very flattering, classic, pretty-easy-to-wear shape.

This is subtly metallic, which is fun, and I like the shape.

I do enjoy a purple dress.

A very straightforward, lovely silhouette; I’d have fun here with jewelry.

I don’t know what synthetics were involved in the making of this, but it looks like leather and is cheap.

The ruching on this dress is so flattering, and the print is fantastic.

There are eensy polka-dots on this silky number.

    Lovely selections.
    1. I really appreciate your effort to include plus options. I have started building my Universal Standard wardrobe as a result.
    2. I really want to hear your take on “curating” or “curated.” It seems to me that word describes so much of culture (I mean, how was Lucky NOT about curating?)…but I know you have a take and your mention last week really caught my attention.

    Gorgeous. I’d wear all of them, but especially covet the ALC pick.

    The Veronica Beard “rich hippie” dress makes me all kinds of happy, but my most flattering option would be the gray drapes number, and I’d still be happy!

    Mustard on a plane

    I like the mustard dress, which brings me to the worst joke in the world.

    What’s that feeling you’ve had that mustard before?

    Dijon vu.

    (Waaa wah. I’ll show myself out.)
