+ Look for Less

10th Commandment: April 1

No April Fool’s Gag this year.  I’ve already done Uggs and Vera Bradley, so how about something that I would actually wear?


Merona Scalloped Hem Ponte Dress ($28)

How adorable is this dress?  I love the scallop trim, and it’s knee length.  It would be a great spring basic.

Like the scalloped trim?  I also found this Kasper jacket that comes in black and white and aqua and black.  I also found this scallop-trim skirt from Anthropologie and this Chaus top with scalloped lace.

Looking for a dress?  LOFT has some cute ones like this scalloped yoke dress in regular, tall and petite.  I also like this scalloped colorblock shift.

The Kasper jacket comes in plus-sizes, as does this lace Karen Kane top.

    Bless you for not partaking in April Fools! I am apparently super gullible. Corporette totally got me this morning, even though it was completely obvious.

    Last year J crew had an amazing scalloped dress. They not have it at J Crew Factory https://factory.jcrew.com/womens-clothing/dresses/shiftdresses/PRDOVR~A3744/A3744.jsp?color_name=bright-poppy

    Not sure of the factory one (although I find the quality to be great typically) but the regular J Crew one I have is amazing and doesn’t really wrinkle! It was perfect for my company website photo shoot.

      Is it long enough to wear to work? It looks so short in the picture, but it’s hard to tell without seeing it on.

        I’m 5’7″ and very hourglassy (read: my boobs and butt take up some vertical space in the dress) and it’s long enough for me–hits about an inch or two above the middle of my kneecap.

    This LBD is amazing!!! I have been searching for an updated LBD for awhile and I feel like I just found it 🙂 I love the scallop detailing. Plus, such a great price.

    I own this and it’s fantastic! Also, I don’t think the Target desciption notes this, but it has pockets.

    I have this dress, and the ponte fabric is fantastic. It feels more expensive than it really is.

    This dress is great. I was so excited to see it on here, as I was thrilled with my purchase I made a few weeks back. I am 5’8 and have worn it to work (professional yet casual environment) with flats and a cardigan and also with to a night time wedding party with a statement necklace and heels. The dress is a good thick solid material.

    Not sure if I’m too late for anyone to see this, but those who are saying it is long enough — where did you get it? Online or in-store? I bought one in the store today and I’m 5’7” and it is a few inches above the knee on me. Wondering if the lower price point relates to inconsistent sizing/cut.
