Wednesday Perk - Inauguration & Inaugural Balls!!!

It's no secret that we both live and work in Washington DC, and every four years, that means the city shuts down on the third Monday in January for the inauguration of our new President!  Both M & H were here for the last inauguration, and we're looking forward to this one as well.  Inauguration day is usually cold, we mean really cold, as in get out your warm sweaters, winter coats, leggings, hats, gloves, and even Hot Hands.  We've watched from the National Mall and at work parties, but the fun part might be the celebrations that go on throughout the weekend.  In anticipation for this year's inauguration, we've got some suggestions for inexpensive dresses to wear to the big events.  Enjoy!

Long & Elegant
Hayden cobalt silk chiffon strapless ruffle gown - $125 - bluefly

This cobalt silk gown is STUNNING and could be worn again to almost any formal wedding.

Sophisticated Long Black Dress
Notte by Marchesa black silk embellished one shoulder gown - $250 - bluefly

Arguably a splurge at $250...but when you consider it's on SUPER sale down from almost $900, it's more justifiable.  Just be sure to pair your shows appropriately so that you do not end up showing your full foot like the model here.

Short & Sparkly

MICHAEL Michael Kors Short Sleeve Sequin Wrap Dress $90 via Bloomingdales

Probably meant for NYE, this short dress has enough sparkle for the big event., and better yet, it's on sale right now!

Ok, so its hard not to look at black dresses when you're going for formal wear...but this one is pretty amazing, and it's different from everything else you'll see out there!

And, even if you aren't getting dressed up to dance the night away, you can still celebrate the inauguration by wearing your party panties..... (we're so clever)

Patriotic Hanky Panky's = fun for both parties via
