Green Floral Dress for a Steal

Even thought I've been trying to be good and not shop, I suppose after three months I just reached my breaking point and could no longer keep a tight grasp on my wallet. I'd had my eye on this cute green floral dress from Loft, and the price kept bouncing around, one day it would be on sale for $35, the next $50, and I'd almost given up on having a new dress to wear for Easter when it showed up for $32 and was in stock at my local Loft. I did an in-store pickup and got the dress in a size six petite.

Fortunately the petite worked out - since I'm 5'1" but don't fit definitions of petite other than in stature, pieces are often too tight in the bust or hips. This dress has the wrists cut smaller and I have to undo the buttons at the cuffs to get my hands through, but I'm otherwise happy with the fit. I feel what drew me most to the dress was that it reminded me of this Faithfull the Brand dress, just at a fraction of the price. That is of course where I thrive, always trying to find the more expensive look for less.

While I did end up wearing this dress on Easter, these photos were not taken that day. No, it was grey and rainy and cold, as it had been all week, which is why I've had such a lack of posts. I truly can't stand it when it's my favorite time of year and I'm not out taking outfit photos with my beloved flowering trees everyday.

  16. What a pretty spring color! I definitely broke my shopping fast by taking some time for myself last weekend and shopping a little but thankfully I was still frugal!

  17. Oh that dress is GREAT! It looks expensive for sure. I love it on you. Yes I know the Faithful dress a lot of bloggers have been buzzing about it. This is a wonderful alternative.

  20. I'm always envious when I see you wearing cute pieces from Loft, because I know the prices can be so affordable in the US, but in Canada, even the sale prices are absurdly high, so I have no choice but to live vicariously through you. I probably wouldn't be rushing out to get a green dress, anyway, I admit, but I love how spring-like it looks on you, especially with those lovely espadrilles. The weather hasn't warmed up nearly as fast as I would have liked this year and all I want right now is sandal season to hurry up!

  21. This is such a chic dress on you dear. Love the sleeves. Also, the bag is really perfect for the outfit!

  22. This dress is adorable for spring! Don't you just love when those must-have items go on sale? Best feeling ever!!

  23. I missed out on this beautiful green floral from Loft. This particular shade of green is so pretty, girly and cheerful. I wanted this dress badly. You got it for such a steal and styled it awesome. Those flower earrings were perfect for it. And girl your Winter must have been a lot milder cause it is rare to find a blooming tree like that, here in Michigan lol.

  24. What a beautiful color! So pretty against the blossoms, too! Glad you grabbed it. Sometimes you can treat yourself after a long wait and for such a great deal - totally worth it.
