Come Fab Finding With Me: The Company Cocktail Party

For today's installment of Come Fab Finding With Me, a TeamSugar user needs our help. Yesterday I got this email from Honeysugar28, who asks:

Can you please help me find a dress for a company cocktail party? I don't know what's appropriate. The thing is, the next day I have to wear a black
dress at a seminar, so I don't want to wear black twice in a row. Help me please! Oh, and also nothing too expensive I'm on a budget. Thank you!

I think that Honeysugar28 should stay away from anything sheer, lacy, or strapless, in order to look professional. I'd recommend this BCBG Max Azria Blue Matte Jersey Pleated Dress, available for $144 here. It's very flattering, it strikes a balance between casual and dressy, and it also looks comfortable, so you wouldn't have to fuss with it. What would you guys recommend? Let's all go Fab Finding to give Honeysugar28 some dress suggestions! Be sure to come back and tell us what you found. To learn what a Fab Find is and how to make one, click here. To see some of my favorite online stores,

Here are some of my favorite online stores to try:

Active Endeavors
Banana Republic
Jildor Shoes
Neiman Marcus
Scoop NYC
Shop Intuition

mine's up. i went for a basic (but not too basic), sexy (but not too sexy - it is the office after all) black and white dress and spiced it up with some red accessories (trendy but still tasteful) - some drop earrings, fake croc heels, and clutch. all in all it is well under $150. also, i wanted a dress that could be dressed up or down - this one will work for the party but in the weeks and months to come you can easily wear it with boots, a cardigan or wrap sweater to work or with a different color palette of accessories to many other occasions. enjoy!

I got started on this, but I have to go for now. I'll try to finish later. I put up the dress, but am looking for a cream/ivory colored shrug and some shoes.

Okay, I did mine. Blue is such a challenge for me! I feel like I've been doing the same color palettes over and over lately.
