10th Commandment: May 24

Polka Dot Dress (Mango, $40)

I like to keep a few simple dresses around for mornings when I don’t want to think too hard about what I’m wearing.  Usually, on these mornings, I’ve overslept. Shhh. That’s our little secret.

Check back at 1:00PM for Two Ways to wear this dress.

Look for Less

    it's such a cute dress, but looking at it on the website, it looks incredibly short. 6″ above the knee is much too short for a work dress.

  2. ADL says:

    Love this. And I too have several dresses that are my “easy to throw on” dresses.

  3. Kate says:

    Belle, would a dress like this be ok to wear to a wedding if accessorized properly?

  4. Nina says:

    Belle, can you comment on the length and the sheer-ness of this dress?

  5. Belle says:

    Kate: Depends on the wedding of course. But it would be fine for a casual ceremony in the afternoon.

    Nina: I cannot. But I own two Mango dresses, one is quite sheer (I wear a full slip under it) and one is not. So I think it's hit or miss.

    So cute! Sadly, also sold out in every color…

    I can't tell if this is an elastic waist or a tie belt. Does anyone know?

My Best Amazon Fashion Finds

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]
