The affordable dress that EVERY girl needs! I am always on the hunt for affordable clothing that I know will last and can transition from season to season. I hit the jackpot with this adorable floral tiered dress.
There is always a ton of trial and error when purchasing online, especially when it is a price that is almost too good to be true. Affordable clothing can be bittersweet, especially when shopping online. AND you are petite. Like extra petite. I am under 5ft and typically wear an xxs-petite in tops and dresses. I really prefer to shop for affordable clothing in store, rather than online. But thats not always easily accessible. (You petite girls feel me?) There are only a few select stores that carry petite and most only carry it online, or in select stores. Which makes it even harder.
Casual- Flirty- Flowy- Chic
I am a girl who loves anything flirty and casual. This dress is just that. It is roomy- which I love! But, the flirty floral tiers add that extra "Umph". I was super skeptical when punching this dress online. Why?
1. It is under $35
2. It is from Forever21- we all know the provided photo are sometimes a little misleading as the models are normally 5"8 or taller and typically aren't very curvy. The exact opposite of me.
3. Normally dress that are NOT petite and are a size small and completely drown me. There is too much fabric and it is just too too long.
I took a chance and ordered it anyway with extremely high hopes. Luckily, those high hopes were not let down. This dress is PERFECT. Seriously one of my favorite purchases. Clothing items from here can be hit or miss especially when petite. Although that could be true for any store that sells really inexpensive items. I have ordered SO many items that were a complete joke (like entire orders of $200+ that had to be returned) and sometimes I get lucky with items like this dress.
The darker tones and floral print make this dress a great transition piece for spring, summer and fall. You can wear this dress with a cute pair of heels like I did here for the warmer months and add a cute moto jacket with some open toe booties for the cooler months. Personally, I plan on wearing my favorite tan suede moto jacket and these open toe booties when fall gets here. I can't wait!
I hope this dress becomes your new favorite as it has become mine.
