Lemming Of the Day: Susan Monaco Chi Chi Beaded Wool Dress

November 22, 2009

This is one of the few times I can say lemming fulfilled! Susana Monaco’s Chi Chi Beaded Wool Dress (retails for $440, I got mine for $129.99) is a sophisticated, modern take on the LBD (little black dress) with ample beading and strategically-placed pleats.

It was the beading (and the pockets – gotta love the practicality of a dress with pockets) that clinched the deal for me – there was no way this cute little dress wasn’t following me home. I figure I can wear it to work or for an evening out. It’s much cuter in person, I promise!

And I took a close-up shot of the beading for you. In person it’s just stunning. Have you picked up any holiday dresses recently? It’s nice to have some classic looks on standby for those last minute events that inevitably tend to pop up.

    Ana that is kinda hot! I could never pull it off being pretty much completely flat-chested (boooo!) but I do love the look.

  9. *Jen* Says:

    Phyrra I love her bangs too. If my hair weren't so fine and cooperative I'd have those kinds of bangs myself.

    Thanks PixyEla! It's a little tight at the moment but I'm on my pre-Thanksgiving diet LOL so it should fit within the next week or so I'm hoping =P.
