 Black Halo Vamp Scuba Dress Something on your mind?  Chat about it here.

I have no idea where I’d wear this dress — a wedding, perhaps? — but I love it. (In fact, engaged ladies, do note: it is available in white, and wouldn’t it be a pretty rehearsal dinner dress?) Anyway: I like the sculptural draping, the simplicity, and the lovely “limonata” color — it’s $390 at ShopBop. Black Halo Vamp Scuba Dress

(Do note: Rent the Runway does carry Black Halo dresses, mostly for rental of around $50 — this particular dress isn’t among their current offerings, though.  Click here if you need an invite!)

Tuesday’s TPS Report: ‘Gretchen’ Cowl Neck Crepe Sheath Dress

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Black Halo 'Gretchen' Cowl Neck Crepe Sheath DressBlack Halo has been around for years, but I haven’t noticed this sheath dress in their lineup before — love that cowl neck, the cap sleeves, and the ladylike length. The cowl neck, in particular, looks gorgeous — it’s not so cowl-y or low to be fussy, but it’s a different feature than I’ve seen on most sheath dresses. Nordstrom has it in “sangria” red, pictured, for $345, while Revolve Clothing has it in bright yellow for $242 (limited sizes only). Black Halo ‘Gretchen’ Cowl Neck Crepe Sheath Dress

I think it’s been ages since I featured a Black Halo dress on this site — even the Jackie, which has been around forever — but something about this lovely red dress is screaming my name. Love the long hem length, the wide waistband, and the asymmetrical neckline. It’s available in red, cobalt blue, and black at Nordstrom for $345. Black Halo ‘Jackie’ Belted Gabardine Sheath Dress

Splurge Monday’s TPS Report: Black Halo’s Donna Sheath Dress

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.
Black Halo Donna Sheath Dress in BlackWe’re loving this sheath dress from Black Halo — the high neckline, the ruched waist, the peplum, the slightly dolman-like sleeves.  We even like the exposed zipper (which is less noticeable on the gray version or the red version if you disagree).  It’s $349 at RevolveClothing.com.  Black Halo Donna Sheath Dress in Black

Sigh… we are seriously loving this dress from White House|Black Market. The silhouette reminds us of much more expensive dresses — David Meister and Black Halo on one end, Rouland Mouret on another — yet it’s somehow much more ladylike and less sexy than any of those designers. Gorgeous, gorgeous. And it’s marked from $148 to $79 — sold, American. Colorblocked Day Dress
