Old Navy Half-Zip Shift Dress in Gray Stripe ($34)

  • Overall, I love the stripes and the casual, rugby feel of this dress
  • I hate the exposed half zip up the back (not pictured)
  • The fit around the natural waist is a bit looser than I’d like and the length should likely be just a bit longer (midi) or a bit shorter (above the knee)
  • Verdict: purchased (I’m planning on having it altered to remove the zipper, take in the waist a bit, and shorten the length)

  • Verdict: pass

Old Navy Navy and White Stripe Sheath ($35 – only in store)

Loft Striped Short Sleeve Dress in Black ($79.50)

  • Overall, I like the color and material of this dress, it felt very high quality
  • I did not like how baggy it was. This dress is exactly why I refer to Loft as “baggy waistlines ‘r’ us.” It looks like a potato sack from the side
  • Verdict: pass

forever21-dressing-room-08-27-2015

Forever 21 Eyelash Lace A-Line Dress in Red ($27.90)

  • Overall, I thought the lace was pretty and surprisingly decent quality (given that it’s Forever 21)
  • The length was appropriate, another surprise given that this isn’t from their contemporary line
  • The waist hit a bit too high on me (a common problem given my height)
  • Verdict: pass
