As much as I love both shopping and wearing brand new clothes - there are pieces I have found along the way that never go out of style (at least in my opinion) and that I wear over and over again loving them more each time. This dress, which I also have in blue (because like my mom always told me...you find something you love, you buy two), is one of those pieces. I found this on sale at Saks OFF 5th about three years ago during a BOGO sale, yes as in buy one get one free sale, and took it home along with the blue for less than $80. That means cost per wear this dress is literally paying me to wear it (which I tell my husband every time I put it on).
It's made of quite possibly the softest cotton in the world, drapes perfectly for warm summer evenings and has a sexy low cut back and simple ruffle detailed front. I have worn it so much that I have had to have the straps resewn twice - but it keeps on ticking - and keeps on getting packed for tropical getaways.
I wore this for our last night in Hawaii - which ended up being picture perfect for a little sunset stroll with the husband along the beach.
Sun tan lines and all - I miss everything about our Hawaii escape and can't wait to go back.
