If you peek inside my closet, you will see more dresses than just about any other item (except for cashmere sweaters, but that is a whole other conversation).
I also wear clothes until I wear them out. Since I have a tiny New York City closet, I am pretty disciplined about only buying clothes that I love - and I try to take care of them so they last as long as possible.
This dress, which I call my "engagement dress" - I bought 12 or 13 years ago. Happily, I was wearing it when Scott proposed on Central Park's Bow Bridge almost exactly 10 years ago! I still wear it at least once a week for four months each year, so if you do those "cost-per-wear" calculations, this was a pretty good deal.
Another dress from the same time frame, which I also still wear frequently when the weather is hot.
And another favorite from last year.
I found all of these dresses, along with more than half a dozen others hanging in that tiny Manhattan closet, at Coldwater Creek. (You may recall that they closed their stores several years ago, but are still going strong online and with their catalogs!). Since I tend to reach for their dresses over and over - for everyday and for TV - I am super-excited to partner with them to show some of this year's newest styles on several TV shows!
In addition to dresses for work or special occasions, they also have lots of great basics, ranging from jeans and tees to the fabulous accessories you see below (love that necklace!) to the "Party of Two" dress I am wearing here (you can see the full dress, and all of the available colors, here).
Here are a few more of their cute spring and summer styles. Like many of their other items, most of these come in misses, petites, and women's plus sizes!
