Mid Week Muse: Summer Wedding

dress // shoes // clutch // bracelet // earrings // lipstick

Happy Mid Week Muse!  I've heard it said (more than once), that if you find a cocktail dress you love, buy it - even if you aren't shopping for a particular event.  While I will admit this advice seems a little counter-intuitive, it does keep you from falling victim to the rule of nature that when you need a dress you won't find one that fits, let alone one that you like.  Case in point:  I came across this cocktail dress over the weekend.  It is marked waaaaay down (less than $100), and it fits like a glove.  The only problem is that I don't have a cocktail event coming up until a few weeks before Christmas. After lots of internal debate, I decided not to buy it.  BUT, that doesn't mean one of you can't!  Grab it while you can, at less than $100 each  this dress, these shoes, this gold bracelet, gold and diamond studs, and this simple clutch to hold this pink lipstick won't last long!

Now, I'm excited to introduce you to Team Muse's Favorite Muse from last week - Janise from Mama in Heels.  Janise took effortless chic to the next level with her Muse last week.  We love the neckline on her jumpsuit, and her styling is perfect - right down to the pink lip color.  Thanks for the inspiration, Janise!

  2. So glad I found you on the Random Wednesday linkup. Cobalt blue and gold are two of my favorite colors this season. So true about not being able to find a dress when you need one. I've learned my lesson so when I see a dress I like I just buy it knowing that I'll have use for it someday. ~Cynthia | My Rose Colored Shades
