Maxi Dress: Wet Seal

Necklace & Bracelet: Wet Seal

Sandals: Target

I found this dress on Pinterest a couple months ago. It was one of those pins that took you to a blog’s homepage instead of the actual post from which it was written….SO FRUSTRATING!

I tried searching the blog to find the dress because I really wanted to know where it was from, how much it cost, etc. Long story short, I completely struck out! I couldn’t find the source of this mystery dress anywhere & I had given up all hope of finding it! I finally decided that I would just have to admire it on the model in the pin & think about wearing it in my dreams.

Okay, I wasn’t really that devastated, but you get the point! I was bummed to say the least! 

Then, last week my luck changed! I did a little shopping & just happened to pop into Wet Seal. This is not a store that I shop in too frequently, as I don’t usually find too much, but I did happen to stop in this time around. Low & behold, I walk in the door & there she hung on the rack!! Let’s just say that I did a little happy dance in the store, grabbed my size, & headed straight to the dressing room!!

As luck would have it, the dress fit perfectly!  It was so comfortable & the price was right, at just $32.99. I went ahead and grabbed a necklace and some gold bangles while I was in the store (they were buy one get one for a penny…can’t pass up that deal!) and called my shopping trip a SUCCESS!!

I’m still not sure that my dress is the exact dress in the pin you see above, but what I do know, is that I definitely got the look I was going for, at the price I was wanting to pay! And that folks….is all that really matters!! Yes?!

I’ll leave you with a few outtakes from our photoshoot. My husband was telling me to do “something crazy.”

I couldn’t do anything but laugh!

I’m not sure what “something crazy” is supposed to look like, but I definitely need to add some variety to my poses! Getting tired of the same old hand on the hip routine!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Happy Wednesday Y’all!

  4. This dress is perfect on you! Totally your style. 🙂 So glad that you found it!

  5. Lovely dress! Great find 🙂

    I know what you mean about feeling silly during photo shoots. I feel completely ridiculous posing for pictures when anyone else is watching – so it’s just me and the self-timer on my camera most of the time 😉

  6. I love that dress! I have seen the same pin and looked for the details to no avail. Thank you so much for sharing your success. You look beautiful in it! I almost never go into Wet Seal, now I will have to pop in.

  7. This is SO cute! I love it! I too linked up a chevron outfit today!

  8. I love it!!! I couldn’t find it on their website, looks like I am going to have to make a trip to Columbus to find it in the store (: Thanks for a reason to go shopping (:

    • Thanks Brittany! I couldn’t find it on their website either! I guess it’s an in-store only item!

  9. Such a cute dress!

  10. I LOVE that dress!!!! It’s amazing! And that color looks great on you.

  11. I want that dress, too! SO CUTE! I love your necklace, too!

  12. I love this dress! I can totally relate about not knowing what “silly” or “crazy” means. Whenever we are taking group shots and someone says, “ok silly picture!” I never have a clue of what to do. I usually just stick my tongue out and call it at day.

    • Thanks so much Nicole! Yes, sticking out the tongue is usually my go to pose for silly pics too! 🙂

    • I know the original maxi dress is over $100 and Wet Seal no longer sells or makes their maxi dress. I went searching for a cheaper version so that I wouldn’t have to make it myself. The fashion Gods granted me my wish and I want to share it with all my fashionistas out there.
      There is a lovely young lady that custom makes this maxi dress for under $50 (including shipping): https://www.etsy.com/listing/188922120/navy-lace-maxi-dress

      I’m sure if you mention this blog, she might give you a little discount. But the gorgeous custom maxi dress is already at a great price.
      I know everyone following this Fabulous Blog & blogger will look great this summer
