Trina Turk maxi dress, Nordstrom Rack ($30)
Love Change tank, Macy's juniors department
|The inspiration: Michelle Trachtenberg|
There were a number of things that drew me to this dress: the splashy black, white and pink print, the airy silk-cotton blend, and the fact that I can wear this when occasions call for aloha wear. Oh, and let's not forget the price, which is a 91% markdown (according to the tag).
|Can't decide whether the tank looks better like this ...|
To make this dress really worth my $$, however, I needed to find a way to make it work-appropriate -- it's pretty skimpy up top, with string ties at the shoulders. Adding a plain black tank kept the look summery while offering some coverage.
