Work Outfits : Rampage Dress + Alberta Ferretti Oxfords

A few weeks ago I saw this really beautiful Theory dress at the outlets. I was smitten with it but more than a little put off by the price tag. I figured I’d wait until it goes on further sale and hope that my size will still be available. As fate would have it, I soon came across this Rampage dress in XS, the last of this size, for $25 at a TJMaxx. It looked like a distant cousin of the Theory dress that I coveted and at a fraction of its price I took the plunge. It fits surprisingly well and (IMO) looks better in person. My only complaint is that I think this dress would have worked better on someone with a shorter bust line, the belt actually falls a good two inches above my natural waistline which doesn’t bother me too much but I am a little nit-picky.

Additionally, a while back I posted about this BB Dakota sample sale on PLNDR, Well, they are having another BB Dakota sample sale and this time I got an e-mail for $10 off any purchase. I snatched this skirt up in size 0 for merely $4.94 (originally $40, on sale for $9.99, shipping is $4.95, $10 off code (10NOW), total: 4.94.)

I’ll do a review when the skirt comes, I am hoping it’ll be longer on me as I think the fit model has about 6 inches on me. Still available in 0s and 2s here.

Lastly, and I am sorry about the delay, I am really spacey sometimes. But I finally had an opportunity to measure the Miss Selfridge dress from this post and these measurements were taken with the dress laid flat. Bust: (almost) 14 inches across. Waist: (almost) 12 inches across. It’s a bubble skirt so I think it’ll accommodate up to a 35 in hip? There is little to no stretch so someone super small like PetiteXXS would probably fit it comfortably.
