MCLV Style: Embellished Cocktail Dress

After sharing the killer gold tank dress from San Francisco-based Style Lend that I took on my recent trip to London, I wanted to show you one of the fun nighttime looks that I took on the road with me.

This sequin-embellished cocktail number from French Connection is everything you need in a Little Black Dress. It’s fun & flirty, with a little something extra that makes it stand out in a sea of black.

When you’re wearing a bold, embellished piece you don’t want to overdo the accessories – You keep them minimal and let the dress do the talking. Here I went with a killer pair of strappy black heels and a versatile gold clutch.

MCLV Style: Gold Tank Dress

During my recent trip to London I was thrilled to take my favorite San Francisco fashion start-up right along with me. I’ve shared some of my favorite Style Lend dresses in the past and was thrilled to help during a dress lending pop-up earlier this year.

One of the things about their dress rental model that I’ve loved since day one is the potential for application in a travel setting. I love the clothes in my closet, but when I started planning a fun, fashion-filled trip to London Fashion Week I knew I’d want to take some killer new pieces on the road with me.

Enter Style Lend!

What immediately caught my attention about this gold Tory Burch number was how the simple tank dress silhouette would work for so many situations. You can dress it up with fun patent leather pumps & bold jewelry, just as easily as you keep your look low-key with ballet flats and a white cropped blazer.

I wore this gold dress out for a night on the town the first night I was in London and it made quite a splash. Not only did I love how this dress looked while I danced the night away with the CCUOCO team, but I traveled really well because of the great fabric.

How would YOU style a classic tank dress?

What I loved about all three of these gorgeous maxi dresses and gowns is that they’re minimal but eye-catching. Bold colors and fun prints are a great way to take a simple silhouette to a new level.

Another great thing about these is how versatile and easy to style they are – Depending on your destination sandals, statement jewelry, and a fun handbag are all you need and you’re ready to head out the door!

Style Lend: Dressing Made Easy

Dresses are my weakness and I have more of them I’m willing to count. But I can, sadly, only wear one at a time. So what to do with the rest of them? Share the love!

I was so taken with this concept I had to get some of my favorite San Francisco bloggers together to tell them about Style Lend and to try on some gorgeous designer frocks.
