Socialite for the Night

Kittens, I’ve brushed aside the brisk, bid adieu to arctic temperatures, and kissed cold weather goodbye; or rather, my wardrobe has! Please note that I have thought long and hard about the decision that I am about to divulge to all of you lovelies over the past week, and the conclusion that I have drawn from nearly overdosing on contemplation of the fashion variety is that, regardless of the chill in the air come New Year’s Eve, I refuse to conceal my form with shapeless sweaters that mar one’s silhouette with beastly bagginess and drab personality! The forecast could predict ten below – though, in all honesty, we know something like that would never happen in Southern California – and I would still tempt fate by allowing my porcelain skin to play a virtual game of peek-a-boo with the chill; and you can blame my brazenness solely upon the sassy Shopmamie!

Anyone who knows me as well as all of you do is quite aware of my fondness of off the shoulder tops. I’m completely incapable of resisting such accoutrement given the fact that they provide a splash of seductiveness in the most coquettish and demure of ways. Thus, there was absolutely no question in my mind that Shopmamie’s One-Shoulder Socialite Dress was the frock destined to stand in as my date come the evening of December 31.

Spicy in its simplicity, the One-Shoulder Socialite Dress is simply begging for the chance to break out of your closet and be wined and dined for a special occasion – and really, what more perfect time than the one in which you are ringing in the New Year, and all of the exciting adventures destined to accompany it?!

Charming in cobalt, cheeky in crimson, and bewitching in black, the One-Shoulder Socialite Dress flaps and flows in a flirty fashion that entices dapper suitors sporting savoir faire and cute boys suffering from can’t-be-controlled-yet-absolutely-adorable bedhead alike; while making you feel like the belle of the ball in true saucy style!

Cinch mark’s That’s A Wrap Scarf around the waist to create an hourglass contour that renders your many admirers speechless; up the wow-factor and channel the Old Hollywood starlet within with the addition of the statement-making High Society Necklace; or highlight the playful pleating detail about the neckline by dusting Twinklebelle over your bare shoulder and collarbone for a glittering shine that makes you sparkle from the inside out!

Don’t you want to be a socialite for the night, darlings?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Shopmamie for the pictures.

Definitely, I so wish to channel my calling to be a socialite and this socialite dress is perfect.

Erika, you tease... I thought that you're moving to the tropics from your first line. LOL!

Time to hit the sack. Good night sweetie!

It's funny, I am seeing the one-shoulder dress everywhere I turn! I love the look, and the thing about it is, like with the crazy high platform booties, it's so clearly this season, on trend, and not possibly vintage.

And yes, the off the shoulder look is so much sexier than low cleavage. In fact I'd go as far saying shoulders might well be the new boobs!

There's also something a bit Flashdance circa the 80s about it, too. It's a gorgeous dress and wrapping a scarf round the waist would be even better than a belt, I agree. I give it two thumbs up!

kpeach said...

yes I do! love this look xx

Diane said...

omg this top is so fabulous! perfect for a night out

Princess Liberty said...

The red dress is beautiful !

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

I have a couple tops that are one-shoulder, no dresses. Perhaps I should get on that.
Thanks for the comment, and I really appreciate you following me! Would you settle for a link? I'll visit every day I'm online, plus it's kind of like an endorsement...anywho, have a lovely Friday!

Love love love this dress! Although, I know I would freeze wearing it here in the snow and below 30 degree temperatures. :P Still a lovely must-have dress!

daisychain said...

loving the red!

Jaime said...

Very cute dress-love the red too!

MissNeira said...

I usually don't like the one shoulder dresses, but I love these two, great picks!

Dina's Days said...

I hardly ever wear or even pay much attention to the one shoulder dress/top. The red one might make me change my mind!

Treacle (Stockings Addict) said...

The red one is perfect...I'm a bit scared to bare my shoulders in this weather though!

Tasha said...

Those one shouldered dresses are fun! I think they would be great for Christmas! Most of the time you are indoors for parties anyway, so you only have to suffer for a brief time during the travel from place to place!

Fashion Chalet said...

So sweet, Erika!
Thank you :) it's funny to type out my name to someone else ;)

Ps. Lauren Conrad has a way of working the off shoulder dress top which I like too!

Jessica said...

Join the Gossip said...

I think that's a great dress for New Years. It will still provide some warmth. Plus it's predicted to be around 75 here on Christmas, so New Years can't be that cold...right? Let's hope!

The Blonde Duck said...

That reminds me of that dress Reese Witherspoon wore in Sweet Home Alabama with those fabulous silver earrings! I love the red one!

jayne said...

Caramell said...

jess said...

The one shoulder looks great.

All Women Stalker said...

I like my one-shoulder pieces to have a sleeveless style on the shouldered part. Does that make sense? Hahaha

Monica Bedi said...

SO CUTE!I DIE!

tricia said...

The dresses are really great. So simple, which allows yourself to dress it up without it looking over the top.

B a la Moda said...

I like them but I never get them because I don´t know what to do with the bra. Any clues?

monica w said...

im positively dying for an one shoulder dress. although i have to figure out how to pay off my visa bill first...life sucks.

Catie said...

I love love love one shoulder dresses. I just got a really cute black one (Alexander Wang), but the Shopmamie ones are so cute too. I love the crimson color. And I think this one has the opposite shoulder exposed.. haha so maybe I do in fact need two.

Miss Caitlin S. said...

haha, do your thang girl, no matter the temperature! I love off the shoulder because Lauren Conrad tends to look pretty dern good in them.

S.Elisabeth said...

Ah gorgeous idea, perfect for New Years Eve! Love Shopmamie!!

Olive said...

I do! Thanks for making the one shoulder dress seem manageable and sophisticated! The colour on the second dress is particularly bewitching, too.

If only it were summer time. I would love to wear one of these! I really love how the red looks over the black leggings.

Fashion Court said...

it has been SO cold here in the northeast that i noticed i've been slacking in style some mornings :P .. i definitely agree with your philosophy though. whatever the weather, you gotta look fab!

AudreyAllure said...

i just bought a one shoulder top! which i will post soon :) i absolutely love it <3

Elisa said...

I LOVE! I can't wear off the shoulder unless they are really structured, because a one-strap bra just doesn't do the job for me. But I LOVE them!!
And these are fabulous!

chaoskontrolowany said...

Cute clothes!

Jen said...

I cannot get enough of your alliteration - perfect, ponder-worthy prose! :)

Unfortunately I won't be joining you in a flash of the flesh on NYE... I'm walking to and from my party destination, so I'll be all wrapped up from head to toe!

Nicole Marie said...

eternelmode said...
