As I get back into the swing of things here on my blog, two regular features I want to bring back are ‘Workwear Wednesdays’ where I share chic office-ready looks, and ‘Babe on a Budget’ where I share looks or items that skip the sticker shock but don’t skimp on style. So here goes!
I found this dress shopping online at Forever 21 and quickly clicked ‘add to cart’ as I knew it would be perfect for hot Summer days here in Hawaii. Two things you should know: I’ve shopped at Forever 21 for years and it’s my go-to place if I want something kind of trendy that I know might not stay in style for years, and yet I want to try it out at an affordable price. I always splurge on classics, and shop fast fashion for trendy items. Secondly, I only shop at Forever 21 online – I find they have way more than they do in my local store, in way more sizes, and I don’t have to rummage through millions of racks. But I at least have the comfort of knowing that if something doesn’t fit well or it’s not the quality I’d hoped for, it’s easy to return in the store.
This dress was less than $30 and is made of many layers of super-soft material. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality for the price, so I just had to feature this one on this month’s Babe on a Budget. What are your tips for finding great fashion deals?
