Same Dress for Much Less...

perfect summer dress, coral slip dress
You had a peek at this dress in last weeks Style Sessions but I felt it deserved its own post.  I LOVE this color. It's between coral and salmon, just the right shade for a sophisticated summer dress. I practically squealed and clapped like a dork child when I found this dress squished between shirts and shorts. I only feel a little sad for the person who wishfully hid it for a later purchase. Finders keepers Missy! I've been on a hunt for this dress.

Dress on left ----> Stitchfix item! Remember drooling over that beautiful coral slip dress just a few weeks ago? We were all in agreement that it was a must have piece but with a price tag of 80some dollars I just couldn't have that one. Dress on right ----> Forever21 dress for much, much less. perfect trade!

So the dresses aren't exactly the same and that's ok. I actually like the F21 dress better. You?
I like that I have the option to keep the collar buttoned up or relax the look by unbuttoning it. Either way, buttoned or not, it's a slip dress. And I love the ease and style of a slip dress. They're like summers equivalent to the little black dress. It's hard to screw up such a good thing. How nice is that on days you just can't think anymore or don't feel like coordinating an entire outfit!

If you been with me through past style posts you know I don't accessorize often. It's something I don't think about until last minute and by the last minute I'm getting pushed out the door. But I dug around and was pumped to find these "quiet statement" pieces. Camel heels were the right fit for this occasion but I think wedges and bold color/statement jewelry pieces will be another fun way to style the dress!


I've had my ups and downs with stitchfix, but one thing is for sure they inspire awesome, one of a kind looks.  They definitely provided the inspiration behind this simple and pretty dress! If you want in on some Stitchfix fun, look here...



One more thing. I want your HONEST opinion on this "button" yay or nah? 
It's one of a few I'm trying to decide between...




Have you shopped same piece for less?
What's inspired your style lately?



and, HAPPY EARLY 4th TO ALL OF YOU!!!

The neckline on that dress is very cute! I'm in love with that coral/salmon color this summer too.

I like your new button. I am a member of stitch fix. Some of the items are so expensive for me. I have to really really LOVE it for me to keep it. That color looks great on you!

Lindsey B said...

I agree! The F21 dress is super cute and with a better price tag, its a definite winner!

Becca Moss said...

I say YAY on the new button!! It's adorable!! And high five for finding this dress...someone is gonna be sad you snagged it!! It is the perfect color for summer...and much better than the $80 Stitchfix one!!

Jennie said...

I love the color of this dress! A good sub too for on that was out of budget!

Melissa said...

I love finding a more affordable option of a dress I've fallen in love with. It makes it that much better when you do find it cheaper! I'm totally in love with coral and mint this summer so you definitely hit it. Also, I agree, the Forever21 version is way cuter and I think it has a better overall shape.

And yeah, I love your new button...yay!

Beth Boone said...
