One to Five: Alice & Trixie Pamela Dress

We’re getting extremely graphic this week for our Item of the Week.  Alice & Trixie’s Pamela Dress in a gorgeous black and white print is perfect for the Summer.  The ruffled one shoulder dress is ultra feminine, sophisticated and sweet and perfect the many events you’re most likely to attend during the week.  The midi length frock is cinched at the waist with a removable belt, which means you can switch out your favorite colored belt for more versatility.  The Alice & Trixie Pamela Dress retails for $275 and is one of the pieces in your closet you’ll wear over and over again.  It can also serve as a transition piece in the Fall paired with tights, booties or knee high boots and blazers or sweaters.

Kick start your week in style and show your boss you mean business with a boardroom ready look.  Even though Summer work wear is a bit more casual, it’s more appropriate to look a more sophisticated and put together.  Instead of wearing a sweater to your client meeting, opt for a tailored blazer and chunky accessories like the Insect collar from Lanvin, which gives the Alice & Trixie Pamela dress a more tribal look without being so overt.

Rouged lips and minimal makeup gives you the pop of color for the all black ensemble.

It’s hump day, meaning you’re halfway through the work week.  Head to your sizzling Summer date in style with black and white and a dash of turquoise infused into your look.  Keep your look playful and sophisticated with black and white wedges, you do want to be comfortable should your date decide to take you on an after dinner stroll.  Turquoise looks good on every skin tone, which is why small earrings and a cuff are the perfect accessories for this look.  Don’t forget your watch, just in case you have to bolt for that ahem…early morning meeting if the date isn’t going as planned.

Don’t let a little bit of rain stop you from looking chic for work during the Summer.  Instead of putting on uncomfortably hot rain boots in the scorching heat, opt for stylish Melissa Plastic Dreams heels, which come in a variety of style.  It might be gloomy out but bright pastels in pinks and greens are just what the style doctors ordered to breath new life into your black and white Alice & Trixie Pamela frock.  A long gold necklace and a hat to protect your hair from the frizzies is the perfect compliment for a rainy day in the city.
