I have been seeing the colorblock dress in EVERY single store I go into. They are so flattering, vibrant and comfortable, but I could never get myself to purchase one for $60, let alone $200. BUT the other day I found one in Forever 21 for SUPER cheap, like I mean SUPER SUPER cheap, as in $13.50 and it looks almost identical to the $200 options. It is one of my new favorite dresses!
Which dress do you think is the $200 option vs the $13.50?
Okay…I’ll tell you…
The top picture is from Bluefly.com, the Black Halo Colorblock dress for $226
The second picture is from Forever21, the Fab Colorblock dress for $13.50
Did you get it right?
Do you own a colorblock dress? What did you (or would you) pay for it?
I had a wedding this past Friday night and all I knew was that I wanted to look sexy. I’ve been working out…feeling good…and wanted to show off all of my hard work. I found an incredibly sexy BCBGMaxazria dress in Loehmann’s for $90- it was exactly what I was looking for. Only problem was…I could barely breathe. It had boning in it which made it feel like a corset. Yes, it was sucking me in in all the right places, but how was I going to eat the franks in the blankets and drink wine if there wasn’t even room for air?
I battled for the rest of the week about what to do…tried it on for friends who LOVED it (yea, because they weren’t the ones who would have be constricted all night) and went shopping around town for something still sexy, but more practical. I ended up going with this blue Banana Republic dress…paired it with a pair of very high heels and delicate silver earrings and I felt great, plus I had plenty of room to eat, drink and dance all night.
What do you prefer? Looking sexy with a little discomfort or going for something that also looks great, but allows you to live a little? OR is it possible to have the best of both worlds?
I noticed yesterday that half of my closet is filled with cardigans…how could I possibly have SO many? I mean, I guess I do wear one pretty much every day of the week, so it does makes sense. Whether it’s over a silk top or just a plain tank, a dress or a skirt, the cardigan is a very handy piece of clothing. They really go with just about anything…pair it with a long necklace and cute shoes and you are bound to look completely put together and stylish, every single day of the week. So many different kinds to choose from…here are some of my favorites…all for under $50!
What do you wear your cardigans with?
