The little black dress gets a twist for spring with the addition of delicate sleeves and a beautiful open-back detail. Think minimal accessories, upswept do, chandelier earrings and sky-high, black platform pumps. It seems Miu Miu has done it again, designing a dress that is elegant with a red carpet flair. But unless you are a celebrity, or you’ve got $4,105 to spend on a new dress, consider taking a look at the awesome look-a-like below.

I am completely smitten by Liv Tyler‘s Stella McCartney Polka Dot cocktail dress. It is so chic and you don’t need that much to accessorize it, just a sparkly pair of drop earrings, a cute clutch and some classic black pumps. This dress is sexy, but it also leaves a little bit to the imagination with its black sheer sleeves and flirty details around the waist. Can’t wait to wear the look to your next cocktail party? Check out our look for less below!

I’m a sucker for all things ASOS, but in the last few months and weeks I kind of fell out of love with it a little. The new arrivals didn’t thrill me, promotions became fewer and not so attractive and I just wasn’t feeling like shopping there. Obvioulsly that changed today when I saw a buck load of new bright and colorful arrivals which ignited the spark again. Check out my latest ASOS obsessions below and let me know what you think of my selection. Oooh, and if you decide to shop at ASOS in the coming days, there’s a great promo going right now until 01/22/2012: spend $150 or more and get $30 OFF full price items.

I don’t know why, but I just can’t resist the color combination of red, blue and white. There’s just something about this color combo that makes it a triple threat to me. Imagine how delighted I was to find these absolutely beautiful dresses by Akiko which are from their Resort 2012 collection. I’m especially smitten with the cherokee-printed silk chiffon dresses (#1 & #4). Aren’t they just absolutely & perfectly pretty? I wish I had $200 left to buy one of these. Sigh!

So who hasn’t decided yet what to wear on New Year’s Eve? I know I’m still in the decision-making process. A sequin dress like the one below by Alice + Olivia is somewhat of an obvious choice, but has there ever been a better time than NYE to go all out and rock everything out of a sequin mini dress? I don’t think so. So give sequins a chance to ring in the new year with you. Granted, not everyone can or will shell out almost $500 for a sparkling cocktail dress. And besides, this particular dress is already a couple seasons old, hence completely sold out and therefore almost impossible to get hold of.
