Summer Style Steal: Forever 21 Sleeveless Polka Dot Dress

You know how we often hear people say that they find unworn items in their closets with the tags still on?  Well, those kinds of occurrences are rare for me.  You see, when I purchase something new, I want to wear it immediately, even if the right occasion doesn’t present itself.

I purchased the Forever 21 Sleeveles Polka Dot Dress last week for $19.80.  Such a steal!  Last Saturday, even though I only had plans to run errands, I was determined to wear it.  

This outfit was my attempt to make the dress look casual and hence work for my activities that day.

Of course, I wore flats to run errands.  The d’Orsay sandals were just for the photos 🙂

On Saturday, a few people inquired about my leopard head wrap.  Get this.  It’s a scarf I found in a Dollar Tree Store.  Yes, it was just a $1!

    Such a cool dress and I'm amazed by your ability of making it look like a skirt.
    Hope you're having a nice week.

    What a gorgeous dress! I like how you paired it with a tee shirt 🙂

    Your hair is fantastic as well – I really like that headband in it!

    Love your hair. My oldest daughter, The Costume Technician, wears her hair natural, and is growing it out from a close clip like Halle Berry's. I call this look, "The Goddess Hair."

    I get overwhelmed in F21 when shopping with The Teen, so usually hide and score great costume jewelry. I can never find my size or the rest of an item when I like it.
