Dresses for Work and Play

Whether for work or play, dresses are a great way to bring a little diversity and add a feminine twist to your Fall wardrobe.

Here are some of my picks For Work, For Play and For Both!

For Work

Nanette Lepore Vest Dress, $325, Available here

Isaac Mizrahi Trench Dress, $29.99, Available here

To see my picks For Play and For Both,

For Play

MARC BY MARC JACOBS Jacquard Dress, $328, Available here. Well, I would wear this on a special occasion date or do a weeknight cocktail event, but depending on where you work, it could possibly be a daytime dress as well.

London Times Shirred Waist Silk Halter Dress, $78, Available here

For Both

Diane von Furstenberg 'Jeanne' Dress, $298, Available here. I would be remiss if I did not include a classic DVF wrap dress in this category. Completely appropriate for most offices, yet stylish enough for an evening out. Pair it with dark tights and boots for work, switch to bare legs and stilettos for evening.

Banana Republic Boatneck Sweater Dress, $88, Available here. Pair with solid tights and boots for daytime, switch to fishnets and ankle boots for evening.

The Banana Republic one is very simple and very European. I think I am going to go buy it because I'm starting a new job in September and it will be perfect for work and play.

I really like MJ - but his current print campaign is so lame. Ok, yes, I get that its Jennifer Jason Leigh. But you made her look homeless! How is that good!?

I actually really like all of those. The DVF is probably my favorite, though. I don't care that her dresses all look the same, its such a fantastic same look. I might actually go buy the Mizrahi though. I've been Target deprived for 3 years. It looks like I'm going to be picking up a whole basket full of stuff there between Mizrahi and the Paul & Joe line.

I like the London times dress the best. I have tried and I don't like anything Marc Jacobs makes. All his stuff reminds me of Amish schoolgirls.
