Runway to Reality – Maggy London Dress

Samples were provided for review purposes. All opinions are my own. 

I realize that I am on of the few women that obsesses over fashion runway shows like men obsess over fantasy football draft. I cannot help it! I love clothes that much! As my dedicated readers, you get the benefit of my second obsession, which is finding pieces that look similar to runway looks and fit into a realistic budget.

Can you tell which is the designer brand, and which is a steal? One of these dresses is Oscar de la Renta ($2,360) and the other is a Maggy London Flounce Illusion dress (only $148). Both dresses offer a timeless, classic look, but one costs less than one- tenth the price. Which is which?

The Maggy London Illusion dress is the ultimate LBD. With a sheer neckline and cap sleeves trimmed in black, it is as sophisticated as it is sexy. A sweetheart bodice lends glamour and allure to the retro-inspired silhouette. The Illusion top is delicately gathered, drawing the eye to the décolleté. Fitted throughout the torso and highlighted with vertical seams, the style is instantly slenderizing.

Here I am wearing the dress to dinner and drinks with my hubby. The dress is form fitting and comfortable at the same time. How rare is that?

I also styled the look for work. With a cute blazer and pumps, this would look great at the office. I also styled the look on April Golightly with a pair of nude pumps and rose gold accessories.
