Reader-Nominated Dress of the Day: Akris Punto pleated silk dress

Akris-Punto

  Today’s Dress of the Day was chosen by Zoe, and we think it’s a particularly good choice. It’s by Akris Punto, and is $1,190 at Saks.

Zoe says: “The cut is very retro and adorable, can’t you just imagine yourself putting on this dress and mixing a martini? And it can be worn as a day dress. If only it weren’t $1,190.00.”

If only, indeed…

    I was watching an older episode of House last night on hulu.com, the one with the priest, and at the end House’s boss was wearing this dress. I was so excited I recognized it from here!! I love fashion but rarely pay attention to designers, etc. I do like this dress quite a bit.

    Oh, in case it isn’t obvious, House is House MD, the television show starring Hugh Laurie…and I think hulu.com is only available in the states….and yes, I am an American.
