I am officially obsessed with Betsey Johnson. I was a huge fan of her designs when I was younger, but I stopped shopping at her store because it was totally out of my budget. I was in high-school so yeah, I was perpetually broke…which actually kind of sounds like my life right now, ha! In all seriousness, I found her line to be a bit much (borderline tacky) at one point. I don’t know what I was thinking though because I pretty much love everything she sells now. Confession: I spent a good hour browsing her online store last night. Thank god for sales! I enjoy looking at full-priced items, but unless it’s a designer bag or coat, I probably won’t buy it.
That brings me to *drum roll, please* my new dress! Isn’t it freakin’ adorable? The collar is accented with faux-pearls, and the three-quarter sleeves are cuffed. The dress is made of a polyester/cotton/spandex blend so it has quite a bit of give. It’s an a-line dress so it flatters all body types (reinforcing tip 6 of my “9 Ways to Cover Muffin Top” article)! I scored this gem for $56.99, which is still pricey, but a good deal considering it was $168 originally. For those of you interested in this dress, you can still purchase it HERE for $55.99 + free shipping at Saks Off Fifth. Oh, and FYI, I’m wearing a size 4.
