JCrew, I love you.  Actually, I secretly have a love/hate relation with JCrew as I LOVE their clothes, but HATE what happens to my wallet!  Don’t worry.  I’m not singling them out.  The same feelings apply to Zara and Last Call Neiman Marcus.

The Ralph Waldo Emerson quote, “The earth laughs in flowers”, conveys my feelings about this dress so well.  I’ve worn it to work TWICE already.  The vivid colors and floral design make me feel happy and beautiful.  I want to sing the West Side Story ‘I feel pretty‘ song!  And getting it for less than $25… icing on the cake.  I’m pretty sure every gal needs a pretty floral dress her wardrobe.
My prescription for a great floral dress:
  • Look for colors that attract you.  Think of yourself as a bee looking for the perfect flower!   Will the colors go with other items i.e. cardigans, blazers, heels?
  • Try on different floral designs, whether it’s large or small print, monochromatic or multicolor.  
  • Consider the shape and material of the dress.  This is a strapless silk dress, but I can make it casual with a cardigan and flats or wear it to a dressier event with bare shoulders and heels.  Would you wear it for more than one occasion?  
  • Lastly, are you comfortable with the price?  Remember, cost-per-wear.
SHOP the Look:
Happy Wednesday y’all.  And these quotes are very applicable in my life lately – interesting coincidence.
When there’s a hill to climb, don’t think that waiting will make it smaller.  – H. Jackson Brown Jr.

    I enjoyed the way you posted this as an RX….great sense of irony!

    This outfit is so pretty; the cardigan makes it look so delicate and feminine. You always do inspiring things with your outfits.
