As much as I am trying to spend less this season, Mr. Armani is making this resolution difficult for me. I found these few days ago and totally fell in adoration with these two dresses. Both are quite simple and will be great for years. Right now, when I shop I have a tendency to pull out the credit card only if I believe I can get a couple of years out of the piece instead of one season. Both dresses $395 via Emporio Armani --- both are great for day (with jacket/cardigan) or night.
Peep toe heels on left, Christian Louboutin ($795); right, Emporio Armani ($565) --- Peep toe pumps are savvy and classic; and I love them. I like the red detail on Louboutin but EA retail price is savvier.
