Metallic Striped Bell-Sleeve Dress

When I saw this shift dress on the Banana Republic website, I audibly gasped. Everything about it was beautiful: it was shiny, striped, metallic-y, and the bell-sleeves were FIERCE!  I knew I needed it in my life. However, it was still $138. Meh. I don't like to spend that much on a dress unless it's for an occasion. So, I waited for a 40% off sale (which come quite often!), and then I gathered up Mike and I's Banana/Gap coups and went to town. I got this dress down to $72! Much more reasonable.

Obsessed with the Toms Majorca peep toes. You guys probably think I am a broken record, but they are so comfy! And soooo wearable! For work OR weekend! Mine are old, but below are the updated suede versions (on sale!). 

Tassel necklace

The back has an invisible zipper! So chic!

Inexpensive version & the actual ones.  Remember, I had to splurge on mine because they're RX. #imold haha!
