I'm hording dresses like your grandma hordes Christmas half-broken ornaments from the '70s.
Here they are, in reverse order of affordability, plus some other stuff below the dress jump-off.
SUGAR DADDY WITH A BLACK AMEX:
($497, Anna Sui, Net-a-Porter)
It's a wee bit Heidi Of The Mountains, but it's also gorgeous.
($386, Temperley London, Saks Fifth Avenue)
I fear I already posted this, but if so, it merits a revisiting. Sooo perfect.
($357, Dahl, Shopbop)
($345, Diane von Furstenberg, Net-a-porter.com)
Love the little-girl-ishness.
($312, Harkham, Couturecandy.com)
So effing sexy and slimming. (You know. Because this chick's a real whale.)
MAKE OUT FOR MONEY
($299, Lauren Moffat, Revolveclothing.com)
Wish there were a better photo of this. Anyway, it'd look gorge with some dark tights in coooolah weather.
Totes pretty. Love the classy turquoise and brown.
($268,. BCBG, Macy's)
Really purdy, but I'm not sure it's worth the price. Also, recently I made an online purchase of dress with ruched sleeves and it ended up making ye olde chest look even bigger. Bew. So I guess the whole point is, I have no clue why I picked this.
($266, What Comes Around Goes Around, ActiveEndeavors.com)
This is half ridiculously costumey, half super comfy looking. Too bad it only comes in "Nicole Richie."
($220, Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent, Activeendeavors.com)
When I look back at photos of me as a toddler, whenever I was sitting on my parents' bed or something, the sheets always looked sorta like this. Despite that, I still love this pillowcase-looking frock.
($191, Lauren Moffatt, Shopbop)
($184, Tibi, Net-a-Porter)
Possibly one of my faves. I love the Marimekko-like print.
DEBIT CARD SWIPEITY SWIPER!
(Apprx $90 USD, TopShop.com)
So fun. I'd love to see this in grass green. Love the '80s snaps.
($78, Sweet Pea by Stacy Frati, Dillards)
Very cute, but that girl's eye is sorta freaking me out a bit.
($78, Trovata, Activeendeavors)
I may've posted this before too, but I bet it's cheaper than it was before! Again, loves the Virginia Johnson-esque pwint.
Another cute bi-seasonal piece.
Okay. Here's some random shit, starting with a... MORTS
($226, Trovata, Activeendeavors.com)
A true don't-you-dare denim nightmare.
($895, Temperley London, eBay)
A gorgeous work of art that's almost exactly the same price as my rent!
($365, Tracy Reese, Dianiboutique.com)
(Top $76; Bottom, $80, Juicy Couture, Bloomingdale's)
($16.90, Abas, Nordstrom)
I really like this in white.
Finally, GoClothing.com is going outta bidnez. Sucky for them, best for you, because the whole damn joint's on sale. Here's what I boughted:
($30, Joe's Jeans)
Oh shit! Joe's Jeans for $30! In charcoal, no less!!
($13, Paul Frank)
Green and black = underutilized combo.
($9, Fresh Karma)
Now go forth and spend!
