I purchased this dress on my last trip to Cleveland, picked from the rack based solely on the print: a dreamy melange of amorphous naked lady-blobs draped in orange cloth. Once I'd slipped it on, the fit, collar, cuffs, and billions of buttons sealed the deal. While I generally avoid polyester these days, exceptions can be made for the truly exceptional, in this case perfect colors, cut, and a print hinting at nudity.

That dress is awesome. Looks so good on you. And I wish I knew how to rock beanies like you do. I always feel like they look weird on me haha.

Julie, you look AMAZING! I love how you paired the floral mini with some essential basics. You definitely have a 90's vibe going on, and I'm loving it! xo

The print and cut are just perfect! Definitely worth making a polyester - exception for! Hope you're having a great day!

Love this dress.

I share your point of view - a dress can be polyester only if the rest is absolutely perfect.

I want that dress! Also, you're brilliant at downplaying what might otherwise be fancy. You do casual very well.

Ohhh, I really like that dress!!! Its one of those things I love on others but there is no way I could wear it. I love the bright colors against the slowly melting backdrop, great shots!!!
