Especially my dresses from Lauren by Ralph Lauren. I have three dresses from that label and plan on buying another few. They fit me so well.
This Lauren floral sheath dress was basically my 2011 occasion dress. I was able to wear it to about 6 or 7 occasions and to work once, without anyone seeing me wear it more than once! (aside from Hubs.) The dress travels well too, no creases or ironing to worry about here!
I bought this Lauren polka dotted navy dress at the Las Americas Outlets earlier this month. I've already worn the dress to a conference banquet, and our friend T's cop graduation last weekend:
I loved this dress after I first saw it online. The stripes and colours are so vivid! DaniBP tried the dress too and gave it a great review. I tried the dress on at Macy's while in San Diego, and decided to buy the dress from The Bay online after I got home from vacation. I really like this dress and the accompanying belt is a bit of a departure for me as I never wear belts. The flare skirt is also a departure from my usual sheath style preference.
I bought this dress from Conway in NYC in 2006. It was $12.00. I named it my 'Carrie Bradshaw' dress because of its whimsical flouncy nature and it has served me very well.
Having a bloat day? Grab this dress and wear it with a jacket or cardi over it. As you can see, it was originally a strapless dress but I recently added straps to make it a halter style instead.
I bought the red heels (seen in the above pic) from Nine West back in 2010 and never wore them until a few weeks ago this year in California. I wore them 3 nights in a row! I have some strange habits, clearly.
Sleeveless Black Sheath
This sleeveless black dress with the ruffled bottom has also served me well, I bought it during summer 2009 from Cleo. I've worn it at least once every other week since then and it still looks like I just bought it.
When I wear it with a cardigan, people think it's a skirt. I've worn this to work, to a wedding (seen above), on vacation, to a funeral, to church, our first Mad Men party....this dress is costing me dimes to wear now.
DVF wrap dress
I got this dress from Ebay in 2008 and wore it a lot. Just not on windy days, though.
Other Black Sheath
I bought this T Tahari dress in Spring 2010, it has also been a good dress for winter and those I don't have anything to wear days. It is lined, and I tend to accessorize it with scarves, shawls, jewelry.
Clearly I love my black dresses, I am starting to embrace navy blue.....however I have two colourful dresses on the way from Tall Girl, so I will post my reviews on those shortly.
Dresses. Yay or nay?
