I normally stay away from dresses, even in summer months, simply because I prefer pants (and I think they are more flattering on me too), and yet the photos I have come across recently of these two ladies, Sharon Stone and Ivanka Trump, have me rethinking my position and wondering if I should say yes to adding at least one dress to my closet!
Sharon looks amazing in this peach dress with black accents that she wore last October in LA. I love the satin shoes as well! She paired her dress with a Magic Alhambra necklace by Van Cleef & Arpels of mother-of-pearl, gray mother-of-pearl, and onyx set in yellow gold (I weep). I hope she owns that necklace and it is not borrowed, it really suits her style and looks fabulous with that haircut.

Ivanka, meanwhile, in a floral print dress that’s probably from her own collection, looks so fresh and lovely in this photo from earlier this month. It’s hard to believe she had her third child in late March!

The two dresses I currently have my eye on are:
|Press Blouson Dress.|
This Press Blouson dress. I am watching to see if this sells out at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale before I can get it (though it is not on sale at the moment). I like its high-low length, the fact that it is longer and yet not a maxi dress, and it seems like the kind of dress you could wear in fall too if you just pile on the layers. Hey all you Nordstrom shoppers, save me one of these, will ya?
|Ivanka Trump Pleated Print Organza Dress.|
The Pleated Print Organza dress by Ivanka Trump. Actually, this dress just showed up at my house and I’m giving it an audition. I have to say, I think it stays. It’s on sale, it is really easy to wear, I love the print and colors, and I have every single accessory needed to go with it—jewelry, bag, and shoes.
Let me know what you think of the looks on Sharon and Ivanka, and if you are like me and have a hard time saying yes to a dress!
