A $60 Special Occasion Dress

If you have a wedding, fundraiser, graduation, or any other event this spring that requires an elevated outfit, I found a fabulous special occasion dress you might love.

As you know, you can’t spend a minute online without someone talking about Amazon Fashion. So I made part of my job to sort through the noise and find the pieces truly worth sharing.

Currently, I have two laundry baskets worth of returns by my back door, so much of it is so bad.

But a few weeks ago I came across this dress, and ordered it, without a lot of expectations.

It’s so pretty.

This Amazon find is available in six colors and sizes S—XXL. I chose the navy (below) in the medium.

It has everything I look for in a dress: a faux wrap, a v-neck that’s not too deep, and a high-low hem.

If the dress were one length, it would cut me off at an awkward spot on my leg.

But a high/low shape lifts the hem to hover around my knee, giving me back my height; it also creates playful movement when walking.

I’m wearing it with an old pair of neutral-to-me strappy sandals, but you could wear a metallic in whatever heel you find most comfortable.

And I added a few accessories I featured last year, so you might have them already 😉

Starting with this sweet straw clutch. I don’t know what this is made of, the description says “straw”, but it is a smooth and durable hard case.

I’ve had it since last May and it adds a lovely touch of texture to any outfit. I carry it with everything from white jeans to dresses.

I’m also wearing the Julie Vos Mykonos ring in blue stone.

And these resin earrings are a new Amazon find and I am obsessed with them.

I’m wearing them in the the teardrop shape in beige. They are only $15.99 (with an extra 5% coupon at checkout).

Love. Love. Love.

Finally, in case you’re wondering about my lip color, I used the Huda Beauty Lip Contour in Rusty Pink and topped it with my favorite Fenty Gloss Bomb Cream Gloss in the color Fruit Snackz.

Love this. Is this more royal blue? I see they call it navy but your pics make it look more royal blue?

Yes, I think royal blue is a better description. :)
