READER REQUEST LOOK 4 LESS: EMMA STONE'S PEACH CALVIN KLEIN GOLDEN GLOBES DRESS & GIVEAWAY WINNER


Happy Monday, Everyone!

Recently, one of my wonderful reader's Laini e-mailed me saying how much she loved my Look 4 Less segment and was wondering if I might be able to find her a similar peach, short sleeved dress like the Calvin Klein one worn by Emma Stone at the 2011 Golden Globes.

Who: Emma Stone
Dress: Calvin Klein
Event: 2011 Golden Globes

She has a Navy Submarine Ball coming up and was hoping to "rock her look" to it, but had looked everywhere for something like it and couldn't find anything, so, she turned to me to help her out!

I happily accepted and was up for the challenge, but have to say finding a long dress with sleeves in is much harder than one might think, especially a simple one without beading, bows, glitter, etc., and finding it in peach added to the difficulty!

However, I was able to pull 2 looks that offer simplicity, elegance and have the higher neckline and sleeves. Both come in peach and other similar colors from which she can choose, and then pair with one of the gold clutches I chose or one she already owns.

The 1st offers a more comparable look with a figure flattering silhouette, via the empire waist, for someone who doesn't mind showing a waist and little curve. I paired it with a similar shaped gold clutch to Emma's, but any clutch would work, and gold ribbon ring!

Clutch
Price: $37.99
Designer: Colorific Handbags
Buy: Buy.com

Ring
Price: $4.00

The 2nd offers a not exact, but more wearable look for most figures with a conservative neckline and more similar sleeves to those on Emma's dress. I paired it with a different gold clutch to offer variety, but again any clutch would work, and the same gold ribbon ring!

Hopefully, one of these looks will work for her, even though they aren't as close matches as I hoped, but either way I know she will "rock" whatever look she choses to sport, and I would LOVE to see pictures of what she decides to wear to the ball!

Have a lovely time, Laini and thank you for your sweet e-mail, request and support! :)

  4. Great suggestions! I wasn't sure if I liked her peach dress because I thought it washed her out a little, but it's grown on me for sure. Hope you had a great weekend honey! Kori xoxo
