That is an accomplishment wouldn't you say?
Despite my frugality, I did spot some dresses I thought were cute and affordable.
Merone Women's Sleeveless Scoop Neck Dress
$20 at Target To Buy
Confirmed that I am obsessed with all things green but what also drew me to this dress is its cotton simplicity. The lightweight fabric is perfect for a mid-summer heatwave. The ruching along the neckline and waist give the dress a flattering silhouette and a more elevated style than a regular cotton dress. Of course, a dress for $20 that is equally stylish with embellished flats or heels is worth the pricetag.
Merona Women's Odette Knit Dress
$34.99 at Target To Buy
Again, more green but this time a print in a color combo I adore: emerald green and navy. The silhouette of this dress is so flattering. The tie-waist gives a feminine waistline and the v-neck adds leanness. The fabrication is perfect for summer days at the office but I think you could also pull this dress off at a summer wedding. Definitely DVF-inspired at a more affordable price.
Liz Lange Maternity Sleeveless V-Neck Knit Dress
$27.99 at Target To Buy
Okay I am not pregnant but I know a couple of you ladies out there are and you want to be in on this CC action. One of the regular mistakes I make is browsing the racks at Target only to realize I am in the maternity section and how envious I am of those empire waists and comfy fabrics. Such was the case with this dress. I love the print and color combo...and it is jersey! How do we get a non-maternity version of this sent from heaven dress?
Merona Easy Care Easy Wear Beach Geo Dress
$24.99 at Target To Buy
So sometimes funny things happen in the CC world. As I was drafting this over the course of 24 hours, a co-worker wore this dress to my place of employment. I couldn't believe how chic, well-fitted and tasteful her dress was. When I asked her if that was "blank designer" she said, "No. Target. $25 dollars. Can you believe it?" Honestly, no because the fit was impeccable. Besides being fashionable, this dress can go in your washer...and dryer! Double save! Just as an fyi, my co-worker is more mature and always hot, and she was still loving her dress circa end of the day.
So Le Target, you may have only taken 5 of my best dollars this weekend...but based on these dresses, there is for sure an opportunity to take more.
