Cocktail Dresses with a Kick










I fell in love with these not so basic cocktail dresses by Olivia Rubin. The lookbook, shot by Alstair Guy with the splattered paint artist's workplace as the backdrop has the perfect air of creativity. The nerd glasses and hot pink lipstick gives it an art student gone fashion designer feel. All the garments have a youthful energy, any of these dresses would have a happy home in my closet(and those lace up boots too)!!

I think I'm in love. The aesthetic is so different than you usually see for cocktail dresses. So pretty. And edgy. :)

I'd say they are more Pollock than Picasso, but nonetheless these are stunning images!

And I can't get over the booties. Khaki green lace-ups matched with structured asymmetrical cocktail dresses!? Awesome.

I love these dresses. I'm not sure which is my favorite: the second or the fourth. But I do know that nerd glasses are TEH HOTT, and that these Oliver Peoples glasses are quite possibly the hottest nerd glasses going: http://www.popularglasses.com/Product_Category/Eyeglasses/Oliver_Peoples/Sheldrake_8108.asp
