Each week Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.
What: Every lady needs a Vegas dress, and this one takes the cake... that you can jump out of.
But seriously, this flashy party frock combines fun, frolic-worthy, all-over sequins with a sleek cut, lower back cutout, and half sleeves that make it less Kardashian and more wearable.
Style It: The key to pulling off a super sparkly party look? Balance. Avoid dressing head to toe in metallic, animal print, or any other similarly loud tones, patterns or fabrics. Instead, mix in varying textures and pick a color other than the attention-grabber to focus on.
We chose to play off of watery teal, selecting suede Miu Miu pumps in spearmint for texture and a pop of color, a gel-filled PVC clutch by Christopher Kane with hints of blue and green, and delicate Lulu Frost drop earrings.
