I love dresses. They are easy to wear and if you get the right fit and length they look good on every body type. I especially love the 1950's silhouette of a tighter bodice and flared skirt. I'm channeling a bit of that look here.
I picked up the dress at TJ Maxx for a whopping $20! I know, can you believe it? You can't go wrong at that price. The ruffle at the neck reminded me of some of the new Kate Spade collection. The print is actually an apple. So cute. I probably wouldn't care for the dress as much on its own since I find the pattern a bit overwhelming but pairing it with the sweater gives your eyes a much needed rest from the busy pattern.
