Because it’s Gorgeous Out…

17 Mar

…I’ve decided to do a post about…gowns! See the connection? Don’t worry, you can’t be in on the joke every time. I recently attended the first ever Bloggerini Event at Lair  NYC, where style expert Katlean de Monchy (she’s a regular on NBC’s TODAY Show, E! News, CNN and Inside Edition) showed us mere mortals how to look like red carpet divas on a mere mortal budget.

The dresses were all by Camille La Vie, doyenne of wedding dresses, prom dresses, and dresses of general awesome gorgeousness, you know, for that revenge date with that guy who dumped you in high school (oops, did I say that out loud?) I was truly baffled by the details and materials and the fact that just about all of them were under $500. Mere mortals unite!

There was also a display of Katlean’s newest jewelry line, the de Monchy Collection, perfect for pairing with these stellar dresses, or with jeans and a tee to pump the volume.

Case in point, here I am in a decidedly non-shimmering outfit, and if I may say so myself, that green has perked things up. Speaking of perking things up…the event was sponsored by, among others, Voli vodka, a low-calorie option for those who get all their calories from booze (ahem). I had the Bloggertini, a lemon-y, raspberry blend of deliciousness, and it did not taste like I was on any kind of booze diet. Liquid calorie consumers unite!

So, I’m inventing a new expression: Revenge is a dish best served on the rocks and sparkly.

Happy Gorgeous Drinking!
