Fab Finds Under $100: One-Shoulder Maxi Dress

Soooo, Net-A-Porter.com is have a serious sale (. . . up to 50% off all their designer sale clothing, shoes and accessories). Although I’m still sticking to my spending freeze, a girl can window shop, right? This MICHAEL Michael Kors One-Shoulder Stretch Jersey Maxi Dress is all types of fabulous and the perfect summer addition for hitting up cocktail or dressed-up beach parties. The color. The one-shoulder silhouette. And that $65 price tag — marked down from $130 *faints*.

TRY THIS ON: You don’t need much with this super chic dress. Since the neckline is asymmetric, opting for a bold statement earring instead of a necklace is OK to do (think: chandelier-style or oversized hoops). And throw on a chunky gold cuff bracelet for a Grecian goddess feel. For a dressed-up event, a single sole strappy sandal would take this dress to the next level. If you’re headed somewhere a bit more casual, however, some embellished flat sandals and an envelope clutch werks.

Fab Finds Under $100: Draped Maxi Skirt

An easy, breezy separate that can stand on its own without taking over your look is the type of clothing piece I love. You can mix-and-match these kinds of pieces with just about anything — and that’s why my online window shopping came to a dead halt recently when I spotted this Draped Maxi Skirt from Anthropologie.

TRY THIS ON: It’s got a sporty vibe thanks to the heathered gray color and wide bands at the waist and hem. You could rock it on the weekends with some slip-on sneakers and a white tank for a laidback look. Or you could dress this skirt up (the draped hemline gives it some oomph) with a slouchy tee, a bold layered statement necklace and pair of strappy heeled sandals.
