Dresses

In case you hadn't heard, I have an addiction to dresses. At some point in my life I realized that I didn't care a wit about collecting china dolls or porcelain birds or even those incredibly cute willow tree statues. And then I realized I had an addiction to buying dresses off the sale rack and I decided that I would collect dresses. That's logical, don't you think? Incidentally, if you're thinking about buying me something from willow tree to stand on my mantel, just buy me a dress instead, ok?
I love to shop for dresses (Unique Vintage, Modcloth and Shabby Apple being my current favorite "window" shops) and I love to wear dresses!! I am way (way) more comfortable in a dress than in my workout clothes and that is saying a lot. I own dresses for every occasion and some dresses that all by themselves can fit any occasion.
So I've decided to slowly (but surely) share my dresses with you. Here are some that I've worn recently:

I can't remember exactly where this dress is from. I bought it back when I was nursing child number two because wrap-arounds are the only kind of dress I could figure out how to nurse in. I also don't remember how much I spent on this dress, but you can be assured it was on some kind of sale!
shoes: DSW sale rack, about $15


Dress: Old Navy--I love the fact that though this dress is actually neon coral and white, the pattern soothes it down to a nice pink unless you are very close. My other favorite thing about this dress is that pleats are very tight at the top of the skirt and looser at the bottom. This makes for a very full skirt and a lot of swirl. : ) The dress was on sale for about $10.
Believe it or not, these are Sketchers! These are so comfortable, have a nice wedge heel and look good with everything. I paid full price for them at a Rack Room Shoes kind of place. About $40.

This is an Ann Taylor Loft outlet "deal of the day" dress. ($17) I get lots of compliments on how pretty it is, and all I can figure is people think it's pretty because it is LONG. Otherwise it is very simple and has an elastic (!!) waist. There are lots of belts that would look really cute with it, but so far I've just been enjoying the elastic. The scarf is from target.
Ok, that's it for now, but if I'm counting correctly, I have about 22 more dresses from my current closet to show you!
(I told you I loved dresses!)

  1. 22 MORE dresses? Wow, that's like almost enough to wear a different dress every day. I do like that green one a lot! Pretty pretty friend!
