MCLV Style: Cocktail Attire

One of the staples every woman should have in her closet is a great cocktail frock.

A dress that always makes you feel great when you slip into it – Whether you’re heading to an event, out for a drink, or to dinner with friends.

I have a lot of black & white in my closet so I jumped at the chance to add this black & blue animal print dress to my collection. I love how the pop of cobalt blue gives the print a really eye-catching quality.

And the simple silhouette also means that you can spice it up with accessories like this bold J.Crew collar necklace a la Cleopatra and my favorite oversized BCBGMaxAzria gold cuff that I’ve nicknamed Xena.

The important finishing touch for any evening look is the perfect little bag. I always walk out the door with a smile on my face when I carry this black vintage beaded clutch that my grandmother handed down to me. It’s definitely one of my favorite heirlooms!
