The Perfect Party Dress for Less Than $30!


It's party dress time again!

Summer is coming and you're going to need something to separate you from your crew. Big on celebriites right now are the light and happy ruching and ruffles of Lanvin dresses seen on Natalie Portman, Julianne Moore and Elizabeth Hurley.

Everyone loves a big bright punch of color, especially after a completely dismal winter. I found this truly delightful party dress from a selection at Forever 21. It's cheap and cheerful and perfect for evening weddings and cocktails.

I love edgy black accessories like a fun headband with a big bow and a nice oversized clutch in black. No need to worry that you'll look like a box of Good N' Plenty candy; instead you'll come off as looking young, fresh and modern.
