I love a dark, dramatic floral print

For this week's episode of The Kitchen, my stylist and BFF Gretta Monahan and I chose this Adam Lippes mini dress and paired it with tights and velvet Tabitha Simmons booties.  I've known Adam for ages (way back when he was at Oscar de la Renta in the early 2000s!) and I love the way he creates clothing that is simultaneously bold and feminine.  

Since it's the best time of year for shopping -- post-holiday sale season! -- the dress is 65% off! Even on sale, it's a bit of a splurge, but I think it will carry me into the spring and even on a cool summer night, it will be perfect with flat black sandals. I hit up a few of my favorite shopping sites and found some similar styles for less.  Happy shopping!
