I Dream of a Lifestyle Involving Many Cocktail Dresses I: Marc by Marc Jacobs

Since the SS06 season, I haven't really been loving Marc's collections. The colours were sort of murky and unflattering, and some of the pieces looked more fit for a country bumpkin than a chic city girl. But this FW and Resort season, the Marc dresses seem to have really hit all the right notes.

This tiered hemline dress was the first dress that caught my eye this season. I love the hemline layers. The design combines 60's style (mini dress) with a hint of 20's style (the details concentrated at the bottom). It's cute and very modern -perfect for events like dresses-up house parties.
These two dresses are so cute and classy. Imagine yourself going out to a fancy dinner in winter, wearing stockings with platform heels. Fabulous scene huh?

While these two dresses won't flatter short people at all, I like how the designs are good to go from day to night.

For day, you can layer a long-sleeve t-shirt/ sweater and leggings underneath the dress. And for night, wear the dress by itself (in a hopefully warm venue.)

For office parties, this long-sleeve silk dress can take you from the office to the party without looking inappropriate but still chic.

Contrast these two dresses -the black dress is another office party dress choice, while the vibrant pink dress is great for any holiday/ beachy parties if you're spending your holidays at some beach resort.

For something very party-perfect, this black sequined dress and silver dress is sparkly and oh-so-trendy.

If you want a dramatic flair to your dresses, these two dresses are 'omg, so cute!' (As overheard by two girls exclaiming at Neiman Marcus in LA last August.) I'm not sure how practical they are though. They look like dresses that can only be worn to events once or twice.

The Nix Check Halter dress looks versatile enought for many occasions, (think from bars and clubs to restaurants and house parties), and can be worn many times. I'm definitely keeping my eye out for this dress.

These dresses are the other two I'm looking out for. I love how chic, classy and cute the sleeveless dress (left) looks. And the red dress has a nice flattering A-line silhouette with the purple silk tie high up the waist. Plus it's nice to be in a colourful dress that doesn't look like it's from the 80's.

Great post! I love the last dress, the red with the purple silk tie. The three first dresses are also great. They're perfect for daytime casual but dressy at the same time.

I'm not sure about some of those first dresses, but I have to agree with you--I wish I led one of those cocktail-dress lives! Sometimes I wish I had all of Rory Gilmore's dresses from her grandparents' Friday Night Dinners.

Love the plaid strapless dresses and the check halters! They're cute and universally flattering.

I would have to agree, hi, sorry, I am new to all this, just poking around. But I must say, the halter dress looks the best out of all the dresses.

Since your doing a post on dresses, could you suggest a dress for a winter Winsconian wedding? A saleswoman suggested a dress like the last one, with a big cardigan to keep warm. What do you think?

I love love love the two that don't flatter short people, the two contrast dresses, and the Nix Check Halters. They're all oh so cute :P

Of the last two, the white reminds me of a Jackie O-era, Cassini design. I was distracted by both the poor fit of the shoes on the red and the odd proportion of the model relative to the dress itself, even though the garment itself is fresh and versatile.

The ones that definitely don't flatter short people are gorgeous, and I would wear them on my 5'2 frame anyway.

I love the dramatic NM flair dresses. They look very festive, like you would be a living, breathing Christmas gift.

I can't find the third dress (the one next to Kaleigh) anywhere on the sources you've posted. Could you tell me the style name or post the link?

Blair from Gossip Girls wore the gold Marc Jacobs dress on the Thanksgiving episode. She looked so good in it especially with the capelet she had over it.

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه
