Best Black Gowns at the 2016 Emmys And Where to Buy the Look!

Black gowns were a popular hit at the 2016 Emmy’s.  From strapless to sequined or sheer, each one was different and each one was sophisticated and chic!

Kirsten Dunst stunned in a plunging V-neck black gown.  Her floor length dress was made even sexier with semi-sheer material from her thighs to the ground.  Here’s a dress that gives the similar look!

Kerri Washington was the talk of the night.  Even while being pregnant she looked absolutely beautiful in a strapless floor length gown with sexy cutouts.

America Ferrera’s dress may have been simple, but she proved that simple isn’t always a bad thing!  This spaghetti strap sequined dress would look amazing with some colorful accessories!

What’s the best thing about the holidays?  There’s lots of opportunities to dress up!  The parties and celebrations, nights out with old friends from home, dinners with family, and an overall cheery mood at your local bars!

Every year my collection of little black dresses seems to grow almost exponentially.  This season I’m all about the backless dresses.  The dress above turns into a party when the sweater comes off because it reveals a nearly backless design.  More dresses and pictures to come. 😉

Happy Holidays!

Love,

One Sweater, Three Looks for Different Occasions

You may not want to work overtime, but your sweaters do! One simple sweater can take you from work to happy hour drinks to hanging out with friends on the weekend.

Look #1: Wear to Work

Wearing a bold color like blue will not only help you seem more confident and in-charge, it will also help you break up the boring grey-ness of a typical office.

Look # 2: Casual Weekend Chic

My favorite part of this look is the camisole.  Even if the sweater covers it all up, there’s something to be said for feeling good about what’s underneath.  Others may not be able to see it, but you can feel it, so opt for a nice silky camisole.  FullSizeRender[2]

Look #3: Classy Night Out

The thigh-high boots in this look are what turn up the sex-appeal.  Sure, the sweater and dress are pretty conservative and understated, but those boots will add the perfect balance! FullSizeRender[1]

Halloween 2015: Riding back to the 1920’s in Style

This Halloween I went back in time to the 1920’s. As I walked into a fancy restaurant establishment, I couldn’t help but feel natural, like a real flapper in the 1920’s.  Of course, when I sat down and ordered my glass of wine, I was very happy to not actually be in the 1920’s with prohibition laws in place.

Get Ready to Kick up your Heels Saturday Night

There’s nothing better than dressing up and dancing your butt off for a night. Heading to a club this Saturday night?  Here’s what you’ll want to make your night of dancing a million times better!

First, the lbd…for any of you not in-the-know, lbd is “little black dress.”  Like the Nasty Gal dress featured above, go with a dress that features any or all of the following and you’ll be golden: lace, corset body, spaghetti straps, and/or a body-con silhouette.

For shoes, think stiletto high-heel open-toe black booties.

Arm yourself with a gold bracelet cuff, a feminine pink clutch, and boom your a vision in black and gold!

Last but not least, swipe that soft pink blush across your already rosy cheeks, use your black eye-shadow as a liner, and highlight your brow.

See y’all on the dance floor…or the stage!

Love,

J. Molly

 

 

 

Today’s Hottest Finds

Let’s be real, 90% of the fun of going out for the night, is dressing up.  So I scoured the web for the hottest dress and accessories to create a sizzling hot outfit.  Whether you’re impressing a guy, or impressing yourself, you can’t go wrong with a little black dress.  If you want that effortless look…that “I want to look sexy without looking like I’m trying to look sexy” then wear a dress with long sleeves.  Make it tight and body-forming with some fun sexy cutouts like the one from Nasty Gal featured above.

For jewelry, pick your favorite piece and go with it.  I chose a pair of drop silver earrings to match the silver chain in the Chanel bag.  Speaking of which, if that Chanel bag were, $6,000 cheaper I would buy it! (Actual retail price of the Chanel bag: $6,700.)  The pink color is an obvious winner!  When you’re wearing a black dress, you need at least one colorful accessory to give the look some flavor.

The shoes are from the brand, United Nude.  They’re a statement piece that will have everyone at the party talking.

Stay tuned for more hot looks coming this way and thanks for reading Molly’s Runway.

Love,
