Aww, you ladies are so sweet. Thanks!
Curlyhoneyb, both those dresses sound really cute, so I hope you post pics.
Munchy, I got it at Anthropologie. Shocking, I know. On sale, too, which was great.

RCC, I can so see you rocking the print. I think it would look fabulous on you!

Jeep:
I'm in love with this dress. It's on sale right now so I'm pretty tempted to get it. dELiAs > Floral-Print Strapless Dress > dresses > casual
2c/3a
somewhere between fine and medium texture
average porosity underneath, fairly high porosity in the canopy



cowash: Suave Tropical Coconut
rinse-out: GFTN, One-C
styling: LALSG, BRHG, EcoStyler


I so want this JCrew dress. I missed the 30% off sale someone mentioned but I'll keep checking. It looks a bit youthful for me but at my height, it comes to my knee, not above.

I'd get it.

Screw whoever doesn't like it.
I like both of these... but I think I'm leaning towards the black.

(Sorry, I couldn't figure out how to paste the picture... or it just wasn't letting me).

I just bought this one at Kohl's. It doesn't look like much in the picture, but it's very pretty on. The colors are dark green and sea blue with black, on cream.

I opted for this one. Against my dark brown skin, this color will be pretty. I'll need a sweater or shawl, but I think I can make it work. It's JCrew and just $29 so if it doesn't work, I haven't lost that much money.

My mom gave me this dress but I don't know how I feel about it. I don't even know what kind of shoes I would wear with the dress.
Turtles: omg please don't put that in your moo moo

Nej: too late... moo moo has been infiltrated.
I tried this dress on today. I love it, but it's not in my budget.

Reviving last years' summer-dress thread...anyone have anything new (or new-ish) to show?

I loved my Lands' End dress last year in navy, so I just ordered the same style, only in a print, and in a cotton-silk lawn rather than just cotton. Regularly $120 but on sale for $40 with free shipping. Kinda happy.





This is my current favorite! I just wore it to a wedding. The shoes were a bit tough to walk in but oh well. I love yellow, haha

It's above-the-knee in length, and I'm 5'2". I wish it were a tad bit longer, but I live with it. Lands' End stuff is "Guaranteed. Period.", so you can always send it back if it's not right...or return it to your local Sears store, for free shipping. No risk!
