Little Blue Dress

So, if you can’t already tell, I’m a little obsessed with this blue patterned dress I own and pretty much wear everywhere. I seriously have WAY too many pictures in it, which is sort of embarrassing but just goes to show how well it’s held up over the past three years. I originally bought it for a rehearsal dinner in the summer of 2014, but it’s worked perfectly for much more casual events, dates, brunches, nights out, you name it. Oh, and the best part? If I’m remembering correctly, it was only $20. The worst part? I have NO idea where it’s from, since I remember passing a random store in SoHo and leaving with the dress after only a few minutes. But still, best $20 ever spent, am I right? (Also, these are just SOME of the pictures of me in it…#yikes).

What I love about this dress is its flattering cut. I have pretty wide hips, so I like that the material is a bit flowy while still being tight up top. Otherwise, shift dresses generally fit me the best, and I’m pretty picky about what I will and won’t wear (hence why I’ve worn the same dress everywhere for the past three years…oops).

So, help a girl out…if you know of other equally cute dresses with a flattering cut (and preferably a fun pattern–this girl LOVES a good pattern), let me know. If only I could somehow find that little boutique in NYC and buy five more dresses in every single color…but that probably won’t happen!
