Weeks 41-42 Results

14 Jan

Alright so you’re either going to think that I’m crazy or brilliant on this one!

If you recall, this challenge was a biggie! It was to find a dress similar to this wrap dress from the Rachel Zoe pre-Fall collection:

Rachel Zoe pre-fall on INSTYLE.COM

I had huge doubts in my ability to find something but I think that I may have actually been successful on this one (but then again that’s up to you to decide).

So what did I find? Okay bear with me here…

I know that the pattern is kind of crazy, and nothing like the giraffe pattern of the Rachel Zoe dress, and nothing like any of the patterns that I normally wear, but what I ended up buying was this bathing suit cover up/dress/shirt (honestly I have no idea exactly what it qualifies as, the receipt says “junior trend”) from Winners:

Winners $9.99, front

Back

Insane? Perhaps. But it did come in at a bargain basement price of $9.99!

Since it is very billowy and I had a lot of room left in my budget I also purchased this (reversible) belt for $16.99:

So all together my entire purchase came to $30.49 taxes in!

 

Now here’s the true test, this is how it looks on me:

"Dress" and belt Winners, shoes Steve Madden

So what do you think? Did I have a temporary bout of insanity on this challenge?

    I think the dress is frickin’ awesome on you! I don’t think it has to be exact – just in the spirit of what you’re trying to emulate. Good for you!
