Eliza J Fit and Flare Dress ($95)

The Nordstrom sale section is not technically a discount sale site, but it might as well be  It is my very.favorite.place to shop for dresses.

This white eyelet frock from Eliza J is a definite summertime crowd pleaser.  If you’re looking for something with year-round appeal, this 3/4 sleeve black bateau jersey dress definitely makes the cut.  This tonal-inset dress is perfect for the office in summer, and this short sleeve calypso coral dress would be lovely for a summer wedding.  I also really love this Isaac Mizrahi dress in a multi-colored print.

Plus-size? Don’t miss this Betsy and Adam lace dress for special occasions or this ikat fit and flare for any occasion (add sweater for work).  I also like this casual drawstring maxi dress.

Petite?  This Tadashi Shoji lace sheath (also in misses) is not to be missed.  This BCBG wrap dress has a cool, colorful print.  And this coral dress from Isaac Mizrahi with a high halter has me wishing I was a petite.

    I bought a similar dress in Liz Claiborne from JCPenny in navy(I think it was mentioned a few weeks ago) , and I love it! It is very versatile.

    This dress it pretty, but I’d be nervous to wear it – afraid that I would get something on it.

    The coral Isaac Mizrahi dress is pretty, but it would look HORRIBLE on most petite women because of the length. Disappointing!

    Any recommendations for petite maxi dresses? For budgetary reasons,I am trying to avoid having a major alteration to shorten the length. Target and Old Navy petite proved to be way too long (I am 5 feet). I just ordered a maxi tee-shirt dress from Gap petite but it has not yet arrived. I also tried scoping out maxi dresses in kid sizing thinking I might find one that would not look too youthful but no success.
