($1,120, Chloe, Net-a-porter.com)
ZOMG. Granted, the design and colors of striped jersey Chloe dress are awe-inspiring, um, but, WHY is it over a grand? It's made of fucking JERSEY, people! Look at all the other similarly cute jersey dresses you could purchase for far, far less!

It's Bluefly, bitches!

Not cheap, to be sure, but it's DVF. Worth every cent for this gorgeous wool frock.
($448, Badgley Mischka, Saks)
Next to Chloe, this Badgley Mischka jersey dress is "a steal!" And it's far more elegante.
($203, Mara Hoffman, Saks)Ok, certainly we're straying a bit too much into total-tennis territory here, but this adorable red-and-white-striped dress feels like a children's book come to life -- now, normally that would be really bad, but the not-too-obtuse scribbles make it whimsical and not too cloying.
This doesn't totally apply, even though it is jersey, but I threw it in there because I forgot how much I love Mara Hoffman, and because it's stripey, and because I think it could actually look really cute with some peach-y pumps.
