Left / Right: Classic Buttoned Dress (Purchase)
Positives: I absolutely love the sleeves on the dress. Most of the dresses I own are either sleeveless or 3/4 sleeves, so I was excited when I saw the rolled, flutter cap sleeves. I'm generally not a "pink person," but the bright, salmon color is so lovely in person. Oh, and there's pockets...I can't say no to a dress with pockets :)
Negatives: I'm not a fan of the button placement on the collar. (I'll most likely unbutton the first three buttons.)
Left: Striped dress purchased at Forever21, Right: Similar Floral Striped Dress (Purchase)
Positives: I was instantly drawn to the blue and white, nautical stripes. It is made of 100% cotton and extremely versatile. This little number is an appropriate length for work, and would pair nicely with a blazer and heels. It is also ideal for running errands on the weekends with a pair of wedges or flats. The price tag is also a plus. Only $9.90 and available in a cute, bright pink as well.
Negatives: While the material is a bit thicker than most of Forever 21's cotton pieces, I suspect this dress will not only shrink in the wash, but loose it's color a bit.
Verdict: Keeping - priced at only $9.90, it's a steal!
Top / Bottom: Mossimo Pearce Patent Pump (Purchase)
Negatives: The shoes are made of a faux patent leather material, which is more prone to scratches and scuffs. Disappointingly, there is also no toe-cleavage.
Verdict: Keeping - A pair of ruby red shoes can brighten up any outfit! Can't wait to wear 'em.
