There are just some items you own that do double or triple duty. In my closet this dress is it. I liked it so much I own it in 2 colors! Here’s why it’s a keeper, it is such a flattering cut and can be worn dressed up or causal, in fact so casual it can be worn as a cover up over your swim suit. You know what else? It’s machine washable and packs like a dream with hardly any wrinkling. I honestly don’t think I’ve ever ironed it. For just under $50 you can’t go wrong and it comes in 6 colors with a 4.5 star rating![easy-image-collage id=1237]
The two I own are in colors that are no longer available because I bought them over two years ago. I actually like the new colors and have seriously pondered ordering the dress in black. I own a small and a medium. I like having two different sizes because I can wear them in different settings. The medium is obviously longer and not as fitted so it’s totally work appropriate while the shorter, tighter dress in the size small is great for social occasions or shopping!
Take a look at how I have dressed up and dressed down this dress.
The dress has a racerback so you’ll need to wear either a strapless bra or a racerback.
I wear one of my regular bras and use a clip to convert it, I’ve tried a strapless bra but I need more support. I am in the market for a new strapless bra and I plan on trying this one because everyone on blogland is raving about it. I’ll let you know how it works for me, I am planning on taking a trip to Nordstrom in Tampa and trying it on in person. It’s available in so many sizes and I don’t feel like ordering a bunch.
With a great basic dress you can accessorize to change the mood and feel depending on the occasion. Anytime I can sneak in a tassel or pom pom I do it! Pearls always work well along with a long pendant necklace. Really the sky’s the limit and your accessories make this dress more “you” if that makes sense. I’m linking all kinds of fun pieces to wear.
I am still loving my
espadrille wedges from Gap and right now they are 40% off! Macy’s has a pair here that look like they’d do the job as well and they are on sale too! This dress is great with heels or Converse Sneakers. Luckily my trusty Vionics work too.
