AFFORDABLE DRESS OPTIONS

I am huge advocate of knowing what to save your money on in your wardrobe.  It's no secret that I mix high-end with budget friendly items. I think it gives the perfect balance.

The key to pulling this off is knowing what items are ok to save a buck.  For me, one item I often look for affordability on is my dress wardrobe.  In many cases dresses I only wear for one occasion and never put on again.  With that, I would be wasting a lot of money if I always spent over $100 for each dress.  And to be honest, most $100 dresses you can find the same one for a fraction of the cost.
 
 I would rather spend my money on items I will wear multiple times. I go to so many different functions, and never want to fill guilty that I may not wear the dress again and spent a ton of money on it. There are many places to purchases dresses from that are perfect for that one-time occasion that is affordable but not cheap looking.  I got this perfect wrap dress for less than $25!! Its perfect for Spring and Summer parties.  

Here are a few trusted sites that I check out whenever I am in need of a dress.  Shein, NY and Co (can be affordable when they are having a sale), Target, Boohoo (great for night out), and H&M.

Don't get me wrong, I love splurging on a dress every once in a while.  But I prioritize it based on the importance of the event. Start thinking about your specific events you have coming up, and really start considering a less expensive option that is just as cute!

Happy Styling!

BLACK SWING DRESS







Dress: Tobi ShoesSteve Madden | Earrings: Bauble Bar | WatchMichael Kors | Ring: Charming Charlie Purse: Rebecca Minkoff

I was on the hunt for a LBD that I felt confortable, but still added a level of glam. Swing dresses are the answer, because let's be real its not every day that you feel like putting on a bodycon dress.

This swing dress by Tobi is perfect to dress up or down.  It's very affordable which makes it a double win, because its obvious I like saving any amount of money I can! Head to tobi.com for more affordable dress options!

If you haven't added a swing dress to your wardrobe definitely consider it.
1. Swing dresses are so versatile. You can dress it up or down.  I chose to style it more for a date night glam, but you could easily pair it with some cute flat strappy sandals.
2. They are so fun to wear! I am constantly twirling and
3. No shapewear needed! Its not secret that I will throw on shapewear in a heartbeat.  
I love how shapewear will smooth out your silhoutee. With swing dresses they wear are optional. With it being a looser fit its flattering whether or not you are having those bloated days. haha!
If you feel some swing dresses are a little boring picking a style with added detail like this lace-up! It's also nice because it eliminates needing a necklace to pair it too.  

P.S...Moving is not fun, but I am so excited to share the journey with you all soon!

Happy Styling!
