The second I saw this maxi, I knew I had to try it on. I love a good maxi dress, especially one that I can wear to work too! This print is so pretty…mix of different blues, oranges, greens…with pops of white. It’s actually polyester, but feels silky. But that also means there is zero stretch, which is not ideal, but it has a beautiful flow to it when you walk. It’s almost sold out online in the white version, but they have a lot of the blue color. Banana always has sales…so if you just watch, I’m sure you can score this for 40% off or more. I have a Banana card and got it for 50% off and used rewards. 🙂 And I scored tons of compliments when I wore it – an added bonus!
Dress – Banana Republic Bold Floral Maxi; Shoes – Coach Rosemary Floral Rivets (last season, but just scored at the Rack), Jacket – Big Star (old, but similar); Watch – Rolex; Tory Burch Fitbit bracelet; Lagos (old) and David Yurman bracelets; Earrings – Stella & Dot (old); Ring – Lagos
Sorry for my blogging hiatus. Should I admit the real reason I’ve been slacking on the blog front???
I’ve been sucked in to watching Orange is the New Black! For those who also love OITNB, you know how long it takes to watch these episodes! Everyone at work kept talking about it, so I had to join to club. I hated not knowing what the heck everyone was talking about! Oh how I love this show…and I only have two episodes left to watch!
But…I had to show this you gorgeous Ted Baker London Electric Daydream pleated maxi dress I wore last weekend. This is a dress that just makes you feel pretty. It’s flowy. It’s a gorgeous print. It hides that you’ve eaten too much Italian food!
I had been eyeing this dress at Von Maur. If y’all haven’t shopped at Von Maur, I have no clue what the heck you are waiting for?!?!? Let’s go over the price of the dress. It retailed for $375. Yikes. I saw it on the sales rack when it was $187, which is great for Ted Baker, but still a little steep for me. So I did the waiting game…and went back a week later, and BAM! It was on sale for $93. $93, people!!! This gorgeous dress! Uh, put it on my VM card, pronto.
Dress – Ted Baker Electric Daydream Pleated Maxi Dress (but I got it much cheaper!); Shoes – Charles by Charles David; Earrings and Bracelet – Stella & Dot (both retired); Purse – Louis Vuitton; Watch – Rolex
Since my hair is growing, I could actually put it half up and show off these gorgeous minty Stella & Dot earrings I have had for a while. LOVE being able to do new things with my hair then just having it down!
What’s the best deal you have gotten lately?
