Working in an office during the day, I am always on the lookout for an outfit that is cute, current, and workplace appropriate (and that won't break the bank). With that in mind, check out some of the great finds I came across this morning on some of the old standby online fashion stores (Alloy, Delia's, and Old Navy):

Alloy 3/4 Sleeve Shirtdress ($39.50)

Alloy Menswear Mixed Media Dress ($42.50)

Alloy Striped Ruffle Yoke Dress ($39.50)
obviously would need to be worn with leggings of some sort in a non-casual office, since it is pretty short, but so cute!

Delia's Pamela Check Dress ($39.50)

Old Navy Belted Satin Dress ($34.50)
I debated as to how office appropriate this dress was since the satin makes it a little bit slinky/festive. But how awesome would it look with some black leggings and boots in the fall? Very office approriate.

Old Navy Floral Shirt Dress ($29.50)
Casual Fridays? Am I reaching? I had to include this dress, it's so cute, and despite being short, it's otherwise very modest.

Old Navy Stretch Ponte Pleated Tank Dress ($29.50)

Old Navy Voile Cinch Tie-Dress ($29.50)

Dresses are just so perfect for everything (except yardwork. Ok, maybe some yardwork? Special yardwork, like trimming flowers from your garden for a lovely impromtu bouquet. Yes, because I do this ALL the time in my imaginary yard. But, IF I DID, I would do it in a dress). My point is, you just throw one on and go, and you can buy a whole new ensemble for a lot less money if you just go for a good dress.

Hey all -

Sorry I've been out of the blogging game lately again... sheesh. The truth of the matter is I've been trying to save some extra cash lately, so I haven't been able to buy much stuff. Bummer. The truth ain't pretty, people. :-) But I've decided that shouldn't stand in the way of me pointing out what YOU can still enjoy!! So, without further ado, I wanted to tell you about a fantastic AVON sale that they are having TODAY:

Free shipping and tons of discounted items!! Avon has been around forever, and many women I know SWEAR by it. I have tried several of their products, and have always found them to be of good quality at a good price. Plus, they've been cruelty free for quite a while too, so support one of the OG cruelty free cosmetics companies! Yes, I did just say OG. Wow, did I just make myself sound REALLY dated? Wait, don't answer that....

Also, just wanted to let you know that I recently got to try some of the Smashbox Wicked Lovely collection I blogged about in a previous post, and although it was all great, I am totally obsessed with the 3 lipglosses offered as part of the collection! The nude shades are luscious, there is simply no other word to describe them. Wearing these makes me want to throw all of my other nude glosses away. And the container has a little miniature cat-o-nine-tails on the top! I LOVE IT! So awesome, I just thought it was a tassle and when I realized what it was supposed to be I about died - FANTASTIC!
