If only I had plenty of cocktail parties

I love that Tracey Reese is doing a new line of cocktail dresses. The line, which is cutely named Plenty Frock, is young and affordable, with a lot of variety. Two sentences in and this is already sounding like a magazine article, so I'm just going to forget on ahead to pictures.

I love this little pink wisp of a thing. If I had it, I would drink Gimlets and gin & tonic all night in an attempt to feel as much like a flapper as I looked.

This dress, however, is probably my favorite. I love how it's frilly and lacy and feminine, but the cut and the fact that it's not overloaded with details make it clean and contemporary.

I couldn't find a picture, but if I ever find her new little black mini dress with the balloon sleeves, it will become my new LBD. So, I guess it's good for my bank account that Plenty Frock hasn't hit stores yet.

Oh, yes, I saw these on elle.com and that one is definitely my favorite too! I just stumbled upon your blog yesterday and looked through some of your previous posts. I think you do a great job. I'll be sure to check in every day now.

I love the second dress as well! Instead of gin and tonic, I'd have a peach bellini. Don't even ask how I am obsessed with those things at thirteen. I love dresses way more than pants- i have to school weeks' worth!

Every morning dress for a cocktail party, garden party or some such event. Be lovely.

It's gotten to the point that my friends gasp and make a big deal of it when I wear jeans.

Merideth - thanks! I'm flattered :)

Brittany - I know the feeling well. I'm totally getting a job soon.

Lauren - Bellinis are awesome.

S - that's a fabulous philosophy!

I love you ALL!

It IS a fabulous philosophy. Dresses are the world's most useful invention. Maybe we should all go back to 18th century France.

Those dresses are gorgeous. You have inspired me to a) buy one and b) have a 1920's Great Gatsby style cocktail party.

Now that's a compliment :) I'm going to a cocktail party on Saturday (ironically thrown by a dear friend who doesn't even know I have a blog), and I'm going to come to your cocktail party (in spirit) too!
