This was another one of those items I received a ton of requests for in early July and couldn’t find anywhere. I hate it when that happens, but you know, sometimes items aren’t available anymore, or they just can’t be found easily on the interwebs. Well this was one of them. I found out through the B&B Fan Page recently that this dress is by LA designer Pamela Barish. She sells her collections at her LA boutique. Now I’m not sure if she has any left, but if you reach out they may be able to help you (contact info on website). Plus she has all sorts of nice designs to oggle www.pamelabarish.com
If you read my previous Steffy post, then I don’t need to go into the whole ensemble. The dress is a little more complex than a simple flirty summer dress. It has a draped, pleated V neck over the shoulders with the fabric which ends at a high waisted fitted elasticized skirt…which itself ends in a cute kick ruffle. Now Steffy’s dress has a fun muted tone print on it, but I am almost certain this dress is the Horai dress by Isabel Marant (which is sold out). The Horai dress I did find on ebay has no print but the same structure. I found a couple others that had similar styling and prints:
Back to back nights in the club, this time it’s ladies night tonight (or is it?). Take a simple black on black palette and put on some statement jewelry and you’ve got yourself a great outfit. This half circle shape has a very Art Deco feel to it. It also kind of reminds me of the inner workings of a watch or clock. Here is a very similar version. If anyone finds The Real Deal in the sea of jewelry let me know so I can give you credit!
8.29.12 Update. Thanks to Frances for finding The Real Deal by New York designer/artist Pamela Love from her Spring 2012 Collection. Sorry it appears to be sold out, but have a look at her designs on her website (usually available at Barneys NY, Neiman Marcus $225)
