What Would Audrey Do?

I'm having a devil-of-a-time finding a cute dress for some upcoming events this fall. To be honest, I haven't hit too many stores, because, well, I just don't have much time. I have been scouring the Internet, though, and I have to say, I'm a bit disappointed in my old reliables, Ann Taylor and J. Crew. I'm just not digging the styles of dresses this season.

So, I have to pose the question: What Would Audrey Do?

Here's my dilemma: I have a wedding in early October followed by a birthday celebration at a restaurant the same night. The following week we're celebrating our anniversary at the Greenbrier, where dressing up for dinner is the norm. (I'm set for Keeneland - will be donning boots for that daytime event). I have black cocktail dresses, but I'm looking for something a little different; not too trendy, though. Classic, but unique. Which tends to always bring me back to black. I guess Audrey knew what she was doing.

I realize ordering online can be tricky, but I don't often have the time to scour the shops. Perhaps I just need to sliver out a few hours this weekend. So, Ladies (and, any gentlemen who may be readers - feel free to chime in), any luck with ordering dresses online and if so, what would you recommend?

For classic flirty dresses with flait, I am a big Milly and Nanette Lepore fan, which can be found on sale normally at Saks, Bloomies, Neiman Marcus, or Nordstrom online. I know my size pretty well in their clothes, but I would pop in a local boutique and try something on.

A great way to look at a lot of online shops is shopstyle.com, then narrow your search by their various parameters.

Good luck!

if you don't find a new dress get a fabulous new necklace or earings.... something dramatic... something wow! And some new shoes. Accessories often are what make the dress anyhow. I'm a classic girl, myself and so I have a ton of old reliables I can count on. I would set asside some time this weekend, though.

Wear one of your black dresses with a super awesome necklace from Stell & Dot- they have a black beaded necklace that I'm drooling over!!! You can wear it with fancy dresses or dress it up with a t-shirt and jeans.
I think I just talked myself into buying it...
