Cocktail dresses

Bloomingdales is running a Friends&Family sale which discounts most everything by 25%. When there’s a sale, I always check out dresses. Even if you don’t have an event in mind, it really is a great idea to have some in the closet so that when you need one, you are not running around at the last minute, stressed out and spending more than you wanted on something that you’ll wear only a few times.

Quick note on pantyhose as I get that asked about that a lot. I much much prefer that you get a spray tan instead. If you must get pantyhose, get matte ones, most are shiny and look awful on photos. And if you are wearing an open toe shoe – no panty hose whatsoever. If you are not comfortable with spray tan, get Jergen’s tanning lotion Natural Glow for medium/dark skin (light is way too light) and apply it for a few days so that a bit of color can develop. Any store will have it: CVS, Stop&Shop, Walmart etc.

On to dresses: for daytime fundraisers and luncheons, try to avoid dark colors, it seems too dressy.
