So I'm supposed to be keeping myself from buying anything until I got to Spain next week so that, you know, I can buy clothes in Spain. Well, when it comes to self-restraint, I am TERRIBLE. I went shopping today. But hey, I was practical! Kinda. Here's one of my favorite things I got:
Forever 21 Ruffle Trimmed Woven Dress, $17.80 at forever21.com: This Forever 21 dress comes in a bright, coral/petal pink, a blush pink (not on the website) and a teal/turquoise blue. I got the bright pink and the blue because when they're less than $18 a pop, you can get all your favorite colors! It's a rayon dress, so it has a nice drape but has to be hand-washed, and has an elasticized waist with a ruffle around the front and the back of the neckline.
Dress: Forever 21, boots: Frye, belt: vintage, jewelry: Tiffanys. I really like this little dress! It's lightweight, easy to style around, and very comfy. I think the shape is pretty flattering for most body shapes because it floats over the hips/butt without clinging or adding too much volume, and the ruffle fills out the chest area. If you're like me and have enough going on in that area, the ruffle can still help balance you out if you're a little bottom heavy, like me. This dress is also adorable with a little leather jacket, or you can go a sweeter route and add a cardigan.
