I have loved this dress for (literally) 7 years. I bought it at a boutique called V-Fish in Lakeview when I lived in the city 7 years ago. It was just this little booty-q on the way to the Bally's (RIP) I worked out at in Lincoln Park. I passed its window-front with gorgeous dresses every time I walked to the gym, and I had to swoop this up. It's SOOOOOOOOO comfy. It's literally the softest cotton. It's just the best loungin' dress. Perf for roasting s'mores, eating and entertaining.
Even more off-the-shoulder dresses that won't break the bank!
Pupdate on Bentley (follow up to my Insta stories): on Thursday morning, he started limping and walking on only 3 legs! It was so sad! I immediately called our vet, and got Bentley in for the afternoon. It turns out he tore his ACL :( we felt horrible! It could have been from jumping off the bed or couch, or even just hopping around like when he is excited. Needless to say, we felt awful. He goes back this Thursday to meet with the ortho surgeon at the vet. Praying it doesn't require surgery.
Even more reason to carry this precious little one like a baby. LOL
As many belly rubs as you want, buddy!
I love this lace off-the-shoulder dress! The midi length is unique and perfect for weddings!
You have to be careful with off-the-shoulder dresses, and I will tell you why. Sometimes the fabric slips up and won't stay off the shoulder. That is so annoying. I would definitely go for a cotton or linen fabric in your OTS dress, simply to avoid the slippage. LOL. PS: after typing that out, it's a major first world prob. :O
Since this dress is so old, I am linking a ton of options for o-t-s dresses. This style is just the best (and apparently it was on trend about 7 years ago, too, hahah).
How about the comfiest gingham O-T-S dresses? A few are under $30, too!
Pop a pair of red sandals or some red statement jewels with the navy gingham dresses for the 4th!
More pink Jacks:
Dyingggggg over the blush pink pineapple ones. On sale, too!

I love this dress, it's absolutely gorgeous! I wish I was brave enough to pull off off the shoulder tops and dresses hahaReplyDelete
Oh my gosh, you totally can do it! I promise! You would look like a million bucks. Get one of the more inexpensive ones, from ASOS, and try it out. Free shipping and returns, too! Thanks for reading, girl!Delete
No wonder you love this dress, I LOVE THIS DRESS!! I adore when a OTS has a ruffle or 2 in front. Poor little Bentley and his ACL. I hope he's feeling better REAL soon, SUCH a CUTIE and with the BEST fur mama in you!ReplyDelete
We are totally on the same wavelength with style! I am the exact same way about a ruffle! That makes it even better! Thanks so much about Bentley; I feel so bad for him! I hate to see him limp! :):) thanks, Andrea!Delete
what a cute dress! i love how trends always repeat themselves! can't believe you got this dress 7 years ago!!!ReplyDelete
Isn't it crazy? Seriously, my mom would always tell us to not get rid of our all-time favorite tops/dresses even if the trend passed, as she believed they'd cycle back through. Here we are, and she is exactly right! She even held on to some of her fave trendy pieces from the 70s, and I have worn them!! Thanks so much for reading! :)Delete
Love the print on that dress!ReplyDelete
