Get Your Bargain On!  Emmy looks for the working girl on a budget. 

There sure was a lot of eye popping color everywhere!
For those of us with a  'less is more' attitude, I give you Rita Wilson. Poor Rita, designated "worse dressed" by many a blogger and columnist today.

A gorgeous woman in a bad dress.  And it's a Prada - OMG!

Gotta mention the gals who go vintage. Keri Russell popping pink in a vintage Jean Louis Scherner Houte Couture.

Love the rich color of Kyra Sedgwicks dress. And like the sexy shape of this one from Windsor $169.00

Haydan Panettiere looking beautiful in a J.Mendel dress but maybe not such a good idea to blend in with the red carpet.
Like this deeper color from Nordstrum $128.00

Lea Michele wow'd the crowd in deep blue ruffles but how about this more usable and affordable version from AE $69.50 and mock rhinestone bracelet $10.80.
And do check out and see what Allen B. Schwartz comes up with inspired by this years Emmy's.  Every year Allen, Director of A.B.S, makes it his mission to come up with his version of the best dresses worn on the red carpet at prices a budget savvy fashionista can afford. 

As with every award show you have the good, the bad and the ugly.  The dresses that look like curtains, mermaids and space suits. I'll leave those for others to talk about.  Here are my personal favorites, and yes, they're are all black.
