Emmys Electric Ladies

I don't normally post this type of thing, but I was really captivated by a few of TV's leading ladies gown choices from last night's Emmys. Here are my faves:

Brooke Shields - Absolutely stunning. The color looks amazing on her.

Debra Messing - I am always impressed with Debra's award attire choices and this black Monique Lhuillier is gorgeous.

Heidi Klum - I love her gown, particularly the unique twist on an asymmetrical silhouette, although she can make a paper sack look chic.

Evangeline Lilly - This color can be disaster on someone else, but looks fantastic on the Lost star.

Olivia Wilde - I can't tell if this dress captivated me because its one of the few non-strapless ones that I saw or that I really like the elegant grecian look on her. Either way, she rounds out my top 5.

Savvy Sale Pieces

The trick to buying sale items at this time of year is finding pieces that will can work for the early fall or that will work when spring comes back around. Here are a few items that can function for fall and end-of-summer prices.
