A Dress A Day Keeps the Demons at Bay

Originally posted on Outward Expression.

I have bought a dress every day for the past three days. All of them were on sale, however, and all of them were under $20. One was $6. Unfortunately, none of them were vintage, but I love them all the same.

This first one was purchased at the Minneapolis Farmer's Market. It was made in India and is 100% cotton. It is white with black stencil-styled flowers and has lace detail and buttons with a tiered full skirt. It twirls beautifully. I love this dress. For some reason, it has a Victorian feel to me, even though anyone who wore this during Victorian times would be told immediately to put on some proper clothes. It's probably the combination of buttons, lace, and a full skirt.
The second dress was a Target sale-rack find. It is a classic wrap dress in a beautiful, bold teal. The waist is a little high, as is often the case with Target dresses for some reason, but I really like it all the same. This was the $6 dress. I like not only the look of wrap dresses, but also the ease of taking them off and putting them on.

This last dress I got at TJMax. It's a strapless, button up dress with a tie in the back. I love the color and the rose pattern.
