A Perfect Dress

14th November, 2012

Jeremy and I snapped these photos on a snowy evening last week, as I made my way over to host Karen Millen’s Perfect Dress Party. In honor of the occasion, I selected my very favorite frock from the designer’s line, one that I consider practically perfect in every way. It’s figure-hugging and form-flattering, but sophisticated enough to wear to work as well as to holiday parties. It has beautiful embroidered detailing, with just the right balance between conservatively covered-up and suggestively see-through. By now, you probably know how much I love that hard-to-capture combination of womanly and hard-working!
