I recently picked up this $92 floral dress on a new site I just found called ASOS. Kidding! If you read here you know that I am the queen of browsing (more like digging) through ASOS. I have a few late summer weddings coming up, so I have been hitting the dress sections hard on ASOS, Shopbop, Net-a-porter, and Nordstrom (these are probably the top 4 sites that I shop). I have so many dresses bookmarked – or already sitting in my cart – and I thought I would share a few of my current favorites! There is a little bit of everything – some $, some $$$, some floral, a few striped, a couple high summer, and some totally transitional for fall.
Speaking of price points, I have received quite a few requests for more budget friendly items, as well as asks to link to ‘similar’ to items when the pieces I am wearing are older or sold out. I always try to share a little bit of everything here on Atlantic-Pacific, but I hear you loud and clear. Today’s dress is in fact under $100 (and looks much more expensive!) and I recently put together an under $100 roundup here – with many of the items included well under $50. I will continue to wear both high and low, but will make much more of an effort to include budget friendly options to consider!
As for items I am wearing being old or sold out, this is a tougher one for me. I really do wear and re-wear so many of my most-loved items (In fact, I still wear so many of the things I posted on the site way back in 2010-2011!) and for those of you who purchased those pieces when I originally posted them, hopefully I continue to provide you with new inspiration to wear them again and again in different ways. Sometimes, I’ll order an item that is fully in stock, and by the time I post it a week later, it is totally sold out! I understand it can be frustrating when you want to shop a look, but oftentimes, it is sadly out of my control. That being said, in these cases, I will be sure to post similar items, but only if they are truly similar. In my opinion, there is nothing worse than clicking on a “similar link” and it not even being close to what you are looking for!
Getting back to all of the dresses…
