It's a wrap

Bamboo and leaf prints have become this summer's standout print, and I was anxious to add it to my closet, so when I came upon this wrap dress for $4.50, I had to try it on.

I'm guessing it's from the 90's, and while polyester isn't my favorite fabric for the summer (or ever), it fit well, and for the price, I decided to get it anyway.

Wrap dresses are always a great find, by the nature of their design they work well on just about every body type. They accentuate the waist nicely, and let just a bit of leg peek out when you walk.

  18. ITS SUCH A GREAT DRESS ! you know, i had a similar print on my hands a week ago. But I decided not to buy it. There's a flea market coming up and I am actually trying to declutter these days and my efforts are going into choosing what to sell at the market.

  19. I love how you can find such amazing deals anywhere! That dress is perfect and the print is so in style again!


  20. Beautiful dress!! Love the combo with the bag:o)

  21. This dress fits you like a glove! Love even more, your price tags on the outfits. Found you through Look What I Got link up, but since you are also a woman who speaks my dollar price, I will follow you and see some of your other scores. Beautiful outfit again.

  22. It's funny, to think back on how we dressed in the 90s and how unflattering/uncomfortable some of those (okay, almost all of those) pieces truly were. Polyester might be the worst fabric choice ever for a dress with any kind of sleeve, but sleeveless I find you can get away with somehow. And besides, the cut of this one is just perfect - far more than I would expect for something that only cost $4.50, even if it was secondhand. It fits you like a glove!

  23. Super cute. This dress is so flattering on you.

  24. I love that wrap dress--the print is pretty and it looks great on you! I realized that I don't have a wrap dress in my wardrobe--I think I need to remedy that!

  25. This dress is beautiful on you and the straw bag is such a great touch to a summer outfit.


  26. Another winner, Lydia! If you are ever done with this dress... ;-)
    Polyester might not be ideal for hot and humid summers but that's not the case where I live so I don't have any problem with the fabric as it is lightweight and crease-resistant.

    You look beautiful, I also love your hairstyle!
