Dress Me Up!

My favorite piece of clothing is a great dress, and when I think of summer, I think of wearing the perfect dress. You have weddings and beach trips and date nights out so you are bound to need at least a couple for the season. So here are a few of my favorites for summer!

The Long Dress

The Colorful Dress (My newest love!)

Clearly these are not all the "budget friendly" dresses, but as you probably know, all stores make "similar versions" (aka-usually copy exactly) the designer dresses. Don't feel bad when you look at a beautiful dress and can't afford it...chances are you'll see them in the affordable stores in a couple of months!
My rule of thumb is to buy at least one expensive nice piece of clothing per year. You end up having a closet full of great clothing over the years, as long as you take care of them, and you can piece the cheaper things with the nicer ones and no one will know the difference!
