We were first drawn to the Lurex & Silk Jacquard Cocktail Dress at MaxStudio
because of the rows of metallic frayed lurex at the skirt that create a whole lot of texture. There's also a deep V-neck and back with elastic trim that criss-crosses right below it, elastic banding at the waist, ruching at the bust, and slightly accentuated shoulders. It is fully lined and hangs 26 inches from the waist.

The back of the Scoop Neck Pleated Dress by Rebecca Minkoff
is quite spectacular. There is a pleated overlay, zipper trim at the deep V-back, and a hidden back zipper. There's also a crew neck, princess seams at the front, ruching at the shoulders, pintucked cuffs, and short sleeves. It is lined, made from a stretchy silk, and 34 inches long. Love the royal blue color as well.
The Allegra Dress by Fiumicelli
is not exactly original; we've seen many dresses that look quite similar. But we adore the teal color! It has a V-neck, draping and pleating at the bust, darting and a hidden zipper at the back, and no sleeves. It is 36 inches long and 100% silk.

The Viona Dress by What Comes Around Goes Around
has some very interesting crystal and bead trim at the split V-neck which makes it stand apart from other dresses. There is also beading at the front and back and a lining. It is 33 inches long and made from 100% silk.
The Pleated Detail Bustier by Catherine Malandrino
is a little busy, but it's so feminine and beautiful that we couldn't pass it up! It has rosette detail and pleated ruffle trim at the front, a smocked elastic back, and a hidden side zipper. It is 100% wool. Perfect for looking like a ballerina princess at your next party.

The focal point of the Diamond Wrap Dress by Rachel Pally
is a diamond-shaped inset at the side. From there is ruching and wrap detail. This dress also has a crossover V-neck, two inch straps, and is 35 inches long.

The sexy and unusual Eva Mini Dress by Black Halo
would stand out in any color, but in red, you will be ravishing! There is a split deep V-neck, seam detail at the waist, short flutter sleeves, and a hidden side zipper. The bodice, back, and sides are lined, and it is 34 inches long.

We actually didn't realize at first that the Apocalyptic Dress by Foley + Corinna
was tie dyed! Interesting style of dress and use of colors here, we adore the look! It has a V-neck and back, bow at the bust, ruching and charmeuse banding at the empire waist, gathered elastic banding and a double hook-and-eye closure at the back, ruffled tiers at the hem, smocking at the shoulders, and two inch straps. There is a visible slip dress lining, it is 100% silk, and it hangs at 34 inches long.
We're quite fond of the earthy teal color of the Synthesizer Dress by Vena Cava
. There is a V ring at the V-neck, pleating and self-belt tie at the waist, front overlay, padded shoulders, vent at the back, hidden zipper, and no sleeves. The bust is lined, and it is 34 inches long.
