Look for Less: Blush Colored Dress

Emily Blunt looks so pretty in this Elie Saab
dress in a beautiful blush color (pictured at left). She wore this dress from the Elie Saab Spring 2011 Collection to her premiere for her film "The Adjustment Bureau."

While Elie Saab's intricate detailing and feminine embellishments are unparalleled, the blush color of the gown is fresh and perfect for Spring.

You can get this look for less by finding a dress in a blush color and pairing it with nude heels. Emily Blunt wore nude peep-toe heels by Brian Atwood (who is the biggest name in high-end designer shoes right now) - but you can get a great pair of patent leather peep-toe heels for less than $100 at Piperlime right now - Vince Camuto Renees peep-toe in nude (which are incidentally a Rachel Zoe pick).

On to the blush dress now, Lulus has a fabulous draped dress (which makes me think back to the guy on Project Runway who made draped dresses basically every single episode- remember that?). Lulus Daughter of Zeus Blush Pink Dress is budget-friendly at $56 and is simultaneously pretty and modern! (pictured below)

Also, I normally don't include maternity items in LOOK FOR LESS articles, but I came across a maternity dress that was so lovely that I had to include it. And, I figured this would be helpful for some YS readers. So, if you are pregnant, check out the ASOS Maternity one-shouldered dress in blush.

And last but not least, if you are looking for something different, Topshop's Tab Bandeau Dress by Rare Opulence contrasts the girly blush color with a unique draped tabbed panel detailing.
