Recessionista: All in One

Norma Kamali's all-in-one jersey dress for Walmart is an amazing silhouette.

You can actually wear it several different ways. As a one-shoulder, put your left arm through the neckline, wrap the left sleeve around the waist, and tuck it in the wrap. For a strapless look, put both arms through the boat neckline and tie the sleeves in the front or back. To achieve a halter dress, create the strapless look and tie the sleeves around your neck. For a cross-halter variation, create the halter look and twist the straps before tying. You can even turn the dress into a skirt by pulling the neckline down to the waist and tying the sleeves.

That's six outfits in one. The pricetag? $24!

Translation: It's like buying six $4 looks!

If that's not all, the one-shoulder version is the spitting image of Kate Beckinsale's recent LBD. And I love the way Kate wears hers -- with simple, dangling gold earrings, a gold cuff and nude shoes. With her hair secured in the back, you can see the neckline of the dress and the shoulder.

When creating your complete look, anything really goes -- but because of the modern architecture of the dress and the line, it's nice to keep it shiny-bling-free.

The Little Black Dress is all grown up now. Sophisticated and stylish, this Norma Kamali All-in-One mini dress features versatility only limited by your imagination ... and your accessories.
