Fashion Picks: Dresses for Under $100Posted on October 6, 2011
I don’t have many dresses in my wardrobe. Something I’m coming to regret as I look through selections online and attend more networking and fashion events. I think it’s because I’m short that I don’t wear dresses. I wore a beautiful and soft maxi dress to an event in Bellevue a few weeks ago. It touched the ground, so I found myself having to carry the dress when I walked.
I’m not that incredibly short, but I am certainly no model, so anything that hits the knees or that sort of awkward knee-shin area makes me feel shorter.
And let’s face it, I live in city where summer comes in August and lasts 4 weeks with a few random splashes of sun here and there before and after the short lived season. So wearing a dress anytime other than those 4 weeks doesn’t appeal to me greatly. It is raining, and I want to be cozy and warm.
I am however in love with this dress from Zara. (And I just realized I should have bought it last night, when they still had a size small. So sad.)
I like the clean lines & simplicity of this dress from Mango.
Another one from Zara. I am in total love with shape, cut and fabric of this dress. Adorable.
I adore the shape and the contrast of the fabric on this one. Also available on Mango.
More from Zara. I tell you, now that online shopping is available in the USA, that website will be the end of any bonuses from work I receive. Such classic pieces and affordable.
I’m quite in love with that patterned Zara dress, I just love the silhouette…that may need to be purchased if it’s still available next week. You never know when you may need to dress up a bit 🙂
