I know that several of you that read this blog are quite the little fashionistas. So, rather than text each one of you all individually, I’m asking for a little bit of shopping advice here on our little forum.
Yesterday I was perusing modcloth to see if they had anything new and exciting. And behold! A soft and comfy maxi dress…in turquoise (my fave)…with ruffles (uber fave). SO ME, right?
I clicked “Add to Cart” and then decided to poke my head around a little more. Then I stumbled on this alternative:
The pattern and colors are just SO pretty.
The obvious benefits of the first dress are that it has wider straps, more structure at the waist (probably gives better shape), and is solid so I wouldn’t have to worry about matching so much. But i just can’t get over the water color pattern. Reviews of the two dresses seem to be about equal, and the price is the same.
I’ve been ogling maxi dresses for awhile with hesitation, but I think it would be nice to have one in the repertoire to fancy up a casual afternoon (or Fridays at work into the fall).
