I don’t know about you, but I feel like Halloween always leaves something to be desired. Every year, it’s preceded by the usual hype, promising a debaucherous night for all involved. But, um, I find that it’s never really that good. I’m always glad when Halloween is over, and it makes me especially happy that it is immediately followed by Dia de los Muertos. Even though I’m American with no Latin or Mexican blood to speak of, the ghoulish festivity of Day of the Dead, celebrated November 1st and 2nd, appeals to me far more than any old Halloween.

Getting sexy doesn’t require your ensemble to be tight and revealing. Subtly will get you much farther in the long run. But don’t think your sexy look has to be (gasp!) boring. Everly’s Bedrock Dress is both visually interesting with its graphic print and sexy with a plunging V-back and exposed zipper. Yet it leaves much to the imagination. Everly is a favorite amongst celebrities, but get this — the Bedrock Dress retails for less than $50 — which leaves you room to splurge on a pair of complementary (and bitchin’) platform pumps!

So we’ve searched around and found 10 pieces that evoke the same sense of joy and happiness that Som’s flowers do, without the majorly bummer price tag. The key to wearing any of these floral items? Make sure to keep everything else very, very basic. Check out our picks!
The other day, I saw a great shirt with nautically-themed rope detail on it, and almost purchased it, but balked at the last minute.

Check ‘em out after the jump!
I’m always running somewhere after work — yoga, a writing group, dinner with friends — and I don’t have time to make the trek home. So I carry everything I could possibly ever need with me for the day in various totes and duffels. More often than not, I end up looking like a crazy bag lady. What I really need is a big bag that I’m not embarrassed to bring to fancy restaurants, that holds a book for the subway, a laptop, workout gear, and doubles as a purse. This GAP flat tote in beige seems to fit all of my requirements for price, cuteness, and functionality. No more being mistaken for a homeless woman.
