La Dolce Vita

There is something about seeing a light, colorful frock when it is freezing cold (as it is here in New York) that can suddenly make the day seem a little longer and warmer. You feel the sidewalks turn to sand and that large cup of Starbucks in your hand becomes a margarita. If you are off to Palm Beach or Mustique this December or January or just dreaming of being someplace warm then these two dresses perfectly capture that sea-and-sun mood.

Our first dress is an early 1990s Gianni Versace for Versus in a vivid purple. It shows lots of leg and though the cut is a simple sheath, it has sexy cut-outs in the front and especially on the back. There is also a bit of gold detail in the buttons - we always want at least a little splash of gold on a Versace!

Our second Resort piece is a 1960s Italian haute couture dress by Botti. Botti is not well known and even in Italy is largely forgotten. But we were very excited when we were shown this beautifully made, easy dress. There is a small inner corset so the fit is amazing. The fabric in its optimistic shades of lime and pink is a little shorter in the front and would look great with jeweled flats or a strappy sandal for evening.
