Dress - c/o RoseGal / Bag (extremely similar version) - Kate Spade / Sandals - Dolce Vita / Necklace (similar) - Amrita Singh / Bracelet - Baublebar (gift)
I love all of the fun sleeves that are floating around right now, between bell sleeves and flutter sleeves like these. I'm all about the trend right now, but whenever I love a trend and want to buy a million pieces with it, I think back to my sophomore year of high school. Peasant tops were huge that year and I had a ton that I rotated through constantly for a solid six months. Then all the sudden the trend disappeared, and I was left with this closet full of clothes that I never wore again.
To avoid that happening again, whenever a new trend comes along that I'd like to try, I first try an inexpensive version, like this fun dress from RoseGal that was less than twenty dollars! It's the perfect way to try out the flutter sleeve, and the dress is so easy to dress up or down. Win, win, win.
Just a tip on sizing - whenever I order from stores based in Asia I make sure to check out the size guide, and then still size up. This dress is a size 2X, and I probably could have gone with a 3X! I know it sounds crazy to buy something that sounds so big, but sizing is different here in the US. Just pay attention to fit and not to what the tag says and you'll be good to go.
Do you like to try out new trends for less?
