Ok, is there anyone out there who doesn't know about the BR/Gap/ON 30% Friends & Family that started today and runs through this weekend? And remember, it's Give & Get, so you can chose a cause that they will donate 5% toward. Double win!
I'll share my pick with you...and update with actual pics when I take them. Yes, it's another little black dress. Gap Double-Knit Pleated Dress (#691556, $59.50, less 30% = $42)
I actually tried this one on Tuesday when I was on my dress odyssey at Tysons and it's insanely flattering. And I picked it up today when I was back at the mall getting the duchess stone bracelet to wear with my dress for the wedding (yes, my bracelet costs more than the dress).
But back to this one...I took an 8 in the dress. The bodice is fitted. A regular bra works, yay. No shapewear required, yay. I think this may actually be a true 12-months-of-the-year dress. I will be wearing it now with a fitted tee or turtle underneath. Must get back to JC and check out that gray/black mini-stripe tee. I'm not sure yet about wearing a cardi or jacket with this - you need to make sure it is fitted correctly with the skirt. But summertime - sandals, fun jewelry and you are good to go. Knit means easy packing. I see lots of possibilities and lots of versatility in this dress.
So that's my pick. What have you been eyeing at the triumvirate?
Update - here are 2 quick IRL pics I took this morning:
