10th Commandment: August 20

Zara Plush Dress ($59)

This dress is a neutral color.  It’s cut in a classic, professional silhouette complete with slimming side pleats.  It’s actually comfortable.  You can wear it during three seasons of the year–spring, fall, winter.  It’s machine washable.  And it costs less than $75.  Are there other boxes to check, or does that pretty much cover it?

I thought so.

I also love this Carven jersey sheath with a pleated neckline.  If you’re in the market for a pop of color, this green Reiss dress has been on the blog before and is still a winner.  And if you have a little cash to spare, this striped 10 Crosby dress has been in my Piperlime cart for a bit (though I’ll def. be waiting for a sale).

Plus-size: I had no idea Amy Byer made plus-size clothing, but I kind of love this charcoal surplice dress.  Petite: This Lauren colorblock dress with cap sleeves is a must buy.

    I do really like everything about that dress, too, except for the painfully boring way Zara styled it. The pictures give me zero idea how it will look on a real body with curves or with decent shoes. However, all complaints aside, I do trust your endorsement and am going to try it out.

      Yeah, it doesn’t look flattering to me at all, but that probably has more to do with the bad lighting/bad model/bad styling.

  2. Belle says:

    Even the model looks bored with how they styled it. Check back at 1pm for Two Ways to wear it.

  3. Helena says:

    The model looks angry, not bored, to me. Maybe it’s because of the hideous shoes they made her wear.

  4. Meredith says:

    Wow, I love this dress. May have to zip over to Zara to try one on. Thanks for another amazing find!

What I’m Really Buying on Prime Day

I will probably not open Instagram for the next two days. The Prime Day madness is just too thick. 90% of the items being promoted are things that I’ll throw away in two months (or less). But there are a handful of things I will use and are grateful to grab at a discount, here […]
