Vintage BoHo, My New Love, Free People

I think I’ve found a style that I can wear well till I’m 80. I absolutely LOVE Free People, and I ADORE their sales. While I love the quality and details of their dresses, I can’t afford to buy them full price, which can easily be $150-$200. So every few days…uh…I mean, weeks, I’ll go to their sale page just to see what’s new, and last week I found this…

When you go to the site and find an outfit you like, check out the reviews fit. They’ve been very helpful, giving info about whether or not the item runs true to size or big or small.

Here’s the deets:

Floral and Mesh Lace Dress

I’m wearing the size 6
It’s on sale for $89.95, marked down from $128.
How it looks: AMAZEBALLS. The red is so vibrant and looks great with my new RiRi Woo lipstick.
How it feels: Expensive. Totally high quality and while it looks fancy it’s soooo soft you could sleep in it. There’s a super soft slip included so you won’t have to worry about what to wear underneath.

I’ll be wearing this little number with my black suede booties and my black, cropped cashmere sweater. But you can go really casual and wear a wool grandma sweater or jean jacket. It’s amazingly versatile and I plan to squeeze every cent of that $89 I spent.
