The March Dress

I'm late posting my dress from last month's take on the dress resolution, but better late than never, right? ("Better late than never" has been my motto ever since I learned how to tie my shoes.) And like both the January and February dresses, this one was way under budget at $19 from Forever XXI.

After evaluating my last three challenge purchases, goals for the April dress include: branching out and wearing a pattern or a print; taking advantage of being under budget and springing for a great quality dress... and posting in the same month I purchase the dress. Dreaming big.

Rose-Colored Empire Dress (Forever XXI)
Black Leather Belt (J.Crew Factory)
Mossimo Patent Leather Ballet Flats (Target)

Thanks to everyone for all your comments on which nude ballet flats I should purchase! I decided on the TOM'S and can't wait to show them off as soon as they arrive!

the toms- aside from the awesome fact that they help those in need, they are by far the cutest and easiest to match with a lot of different outfits.


  1. Love this dress! The burnt orange color is beautiful!

    1. Thanks, Sara. I'm a big fan; it's actually made quite well and I think it will hold up for years!
