What We Love at: Dressbarn – Dresses


Over a few glasses of wine, or at our last team meeting, whichever you want to call it, the topic of Dressbarn came up. It use to be synonymous with matching “sets” or horrible denim jumpers with embroidered accents. It wouldn’t be the last place you would find us shopping because it wasn’t even a consideration.

Recently, it’s gone under a bit of a makeover, and a good portion of their selection is downright chic. Take a few minutes to check out their website. It’s loaded with pretty inventory, but the best, most exciting selection are in dresses. With great go-to-work dresses for the summer or the perfect dress for a summer wedding, they have something for everyone. On top of a gorgeous selection they offer a wide variety of plus and petite sizing in, wait for it, the same styles they offer in missy. Looks like one retailer got the message that women are all shapes and sizes. The selection is high on style with crazy reasonable prices. For the record, this is NOT a sponsored post, and there are no affiliate links.

We could have listed 100 dresses.  Below we listed a sampling of what we love.  Be sure to check out their easy to navigate website for even more options.

We are loving the look of a two piece dress, but sometimes that top is too cropped and not very flattering.  With this dress, you get the look of a two piece and the modesty (and peace of mind) of a one piece.

This looks like a DVF dress I love but it’s  a quarter of the price.
