In addition to showing up on this past season's American Idol (as worn by Jordin and Melinda), Monif C has made a big splash in such magazines as Cosmo, Essence & Gamour, and on TLC's fashion makeover show, What Not to Wear. I love this purple mini dress- it's short without being vulgar, hugs every curve, features great cutout details on the sleeves and is just so darn cute!
Monif C's Manhatttan boutique has recently opened, so if you're in the area be sure to look them up. For the rest of us, check out their web site to shop and read Monif's blog for insight into the life of a fabulous designer.
Selma Armhole Mini Dress, $175, available in sizes 14-24.
