This blue Forever 21 Knit Skater Dress (in nine colors) has been a reliable summer travel option; it can be washed hastily, dried quickly, and unwrinkled easily. Minimal styling is required of its wearer and the dress’s fit-and-flare style is flattering on many body shapes. I willingly admit to owning the dress in four different colors, with plans to buy more if additional colors become available.

I find it difficult to criticize the value of this dress, considering it only retails for $12.90 and is exceptionally comfortable to wear (not to mention takes up little room; truly a piece made for budget travel). I’ve also actively tested its durability; the dress pictured here has been washed countless times (both by hand and by machine) and lived through innumerable food stains, all while retaining its original color.
I normally advise against entering the giant maze that is Forever 21 but this dress may be one reason to brave the blinding lights and deafening music.
In lieu of more empty promises to blog regularly, I actually scheduled posts in advance for the next little while. I don’t have plans to abandon the blog (yet) so want to thank those of you who checked in this summer. I appreciated all of the shopping tips, honest feedback, and encouragements.
