The Dress Everyone Must Own

Not to be all dramatic and stuff, but I recently acquired this darling Empire Waist Tank Dress from The Gap in violet and I am SO IN LOVE! This dress is not only versatile, but also super comfy, and totally flattering. Plus it has pockets which is always earns bonus points when dress shopping. This dress can be worn to a BBQ, the beach, the office and also for a night out on the town.

Unfortunately I couldn't find an image of this dress in black (a little more fancy), but the white is pretty hot for summer nights out as well. Keeping it simple with fantastic shoes (LOVE me some Report Signature shoes), and a flashy necklace, will have you looking stylish wherever the night takes you.

BEACH TO BBQ:


dress, sweater, necklace, wedges


With sunny weather and summer days, concerts in the park, BBQ's and days at the beach all come into mind. These four pieces allow you to transition easily from hot sunny days to cooler evenings for a little star gazing. (I am also currently obsessed with the sweater as it is a great layering piece).

OFFICE STYLE:

dress, cardigan, belt, necklace, pumps

Pending your companies dress code, this dress easily transitions to work appropriate by adding a cute sweater, belting it in, add some pearls and throw on your best pumps. I recently sported this very look last Friday at my office, and was super comfy but professional.

This is one of those dresses that I think I will probably own in every color because I love it that much! At $39.50 it is definitely a staple for your closet that you won't regret.

I've been looking at that dress for awhile now, I keep hoping it will go on sale (although $39.50 ain't bad but I want more than one color! Lol). How's the sizing?

Lyndsy said...

The sizing is pretty true. I am usually a small, but purchased this one in X-Small because it is stretchy and I wanted the length to be shorter...hope that helps!
