'All Wrapped Up'

We are holding on to summer and keeping things bright and fresh for as long as we can. This week's outfit is all about looking and feeling your sassy best. Starting things off with a dress filled with colorful charm. Crafted with stretch, Acler's 'Habana' design displays a tailored bodice with a straight neck, scoop back and exaggerated ruffle detail decorating a natural waistline. It's finished with a wrap pencil skirt in an elongated length with an extended front slit so you can move freely. A solid item like this dress gives a lot of room for adding fun, unexpected accessories. We gave our feet a pair of head turning heels. Sophia Webster's 'Nicole' sandal serves up playful leopard print with bold metallics and a contrasting ankle strap. To help pull out the stunning turquoise in these sandals, we opted for a clutch that really 'pops'! The Edie Parker 'Jean' clutch not only offers a splash of color, it is also designed in a chic lizard skin effect adding a hint of texture to our look. For jewelry we went for touch of sparkle with drop earrings that are sure to shine. Rosantica's lively appeal is reflected in these gold-tone metal sparklers. Crafted to a triangular chain-link construction, they're accented with rectangular crystal features that will capture the light with every movement. Rounding out our last days of summer frock is a pretty pink pout and rosy cheeks. This Bobbi Brown rogue performs double duty - you get two products in one! Blend it on the apples of your cheeks for a just pinched look or blot it on your lips for a soft, stained finish. Whether you're going to an evening mixer or simply attending one of the last weddings of the season, in this look you'll be 'All Wrapped Up' in winning style.
