  1. I’ve been ogling that Ruth Dress from Saloni for what feels like ages … thanks for the tip about the deep discounts at Saks! Love! Might have to scoop it up.

    I also love that pink lace Ganni number. Their dresses have been hit or miss for me, but I like the look of that one.

    I have two weddings coming up — one in Boston in mid-August that’s more casual, and one in Annapolis, MD in October. I think I’m going with different cocktail dresses for each of them … a soft pink fit & flare number for the former and an indigo lace trapeze dress for the latter. We’ll see if I end up finding any other dresses that I can’t pass up! 🙂

  2. That strapless dress up top is heart eyes! Also, I have that Kayu clutch in navy and use it constantly. One of my all-time best accessory purchases!
