Does Anyone Else Think It's Incredibly Sad That Shopbop Has a Section Devoted to Jumpsuits?

This past week I've had a strong urge to wear a pretty white summer dress. I don't know why I don't own one. Here are some that I like.


Guess where this dress is from. No, it's not Urban Outfitters! Yes, it is Anthropolgie. I need to start looking at other stores. Anywho, this dress is amazing. It's white, it's got a little eyelet overlay and it's called Beach Blanket Babydoll. I like it because it would hide the fact that I ordered half a dozen corn bread rolls at Boston Market last night.
HALF A DOZEN. I didn't think it was humanly possible. $148.


Cream is the same thing as white for the purpose of this post. I love this dress. The only problem is that the sleeves kind of remind me of Silence of the Lambs. I need to stop watching that movie. But seriously, this modernizes the kimono shape and just looks fly. Thank you Rachel Pally and thank you Shopbop for having free UPS ground shipping (which I would totally take advantage of if I had a job and had money) buy this dress for $176.


I am told this dress looks amazing in red. In white, it kind of looks like a dress I would wear when I don't feel like getting dressed or wearing a bra. Which actually makes it perfect for summer. $36 from American Apparel. If you are a student you can get 15% off.


I'm against the fact that the brand that makes this dress is called As U Wish. People need to spell out words. But I do like to think that it's a Princess Bride reference which makes the brand name not completely pathetic. This dress is called a ballerina dress. It's quite appropriate, I would have a hard time stopping myself from dancing while wearing this dress. Although there is some tulle it's not hideous, which makes the world a nicer place. $68.

I've been searching for a cute summer dress all summer and now its too cold to wear one. Up here people are already digging out their long sleeve shirts. (GAH!)

I love all but the creme one, which would look ridiculous in the Land of the Cows, a.k.a where I live.

That American Apparel dress is crap for anyone who wears larger than a B-cup, at least if you want to wear it as a regular halter dress. I got it in dark green, and loved it until the moment I put it on when the straps flared out weirdly and my boobs practically fell out. It works if you cross it in front, but otherwise stay away. I'd bet anything that that dress in the photo was pinned in back to make it look that way--see the pull marks under the bust?

Anthropologie is owed by the same company as Urban Outfitters, and a lot of their clothes are similar... but I still love Urban too!

The dress from American Apparel you can actually wear many ways. It shows it on the site. I like that I can wear it as a tup top since my breasts don't fit in the top unless I want to kill my neck.
