Over 40 fashion blogger Wardrobe Oxygen in a Lands' End wrap dress, Dagne Dover classic tote, and Ross Simons Byzantine Link necklaceNow that I have LASIK, I can easily swim laps again but none of my suits are made for real swimming.  My go-to for swimsuits is Lands' End so I got their tugless one-piece in this '70s inspired floral print (14DD wishing they carried large bust sizes in petite and wondering if I should exchange for a 12). They were having a 40% off promotion so I went and checked out the girls clothing for Emerson (they have super cute clothes for kids and the sales are amazing; I got her a parka for next winter for $20!) and then I went to see their clothes for women and saw this dress… with the promo the dress was around $45.  My last Lands' End order I got a petite dress and it was too short for work so I went with a regular size.  LOVE it!  It fits so well I don't even have a safety pin at the bust to keep it work appropriate.  It's opaque, has great drape, working buttons on the sleeves, and the skirt has a slight a-line so it doesn't cling to curves.  It comes in three prints, regular, petite, and plus sizes, and right now is on sale.

Over 40 fashion blogger Wardrobe Oxygen in a Lands' End wrap dress, Dagne Dover classic tote, and Ross Simons Byzantine Link necklaceRoss-Simons sent me this necklace a few months ago and it has been a favorite.  I can't believe this is the first time I'm featuring it on the blog; I've shown it many times on Instagram and InstaStories.  This is the 20″ length; I always get compliments when I wear it and I love layering it with other silver necklaces.

Over 40 fashion blogger Wardrobe Oxygen in a Lands' End wrap dress, Dagne Dover classic tote, and Ross Simons Byzantine Link necklaceI've had this Dagne Dover classic tote for two years and I still adore it.  With my new position at work, I no longer have a desktop and vary between two of our offices.  I use my Dagne Dover 15″ totes (I also have it in Vermilion) on a regular basis as my commuter bag because they can hold my laptop, lunch, water bottle, purse essentials, planner, notebook, and more.  They look polished but not boring and never tip over.  Tuesday I showed a business casual look for my more casual suburban office; today is a DC office look!

    […] is still out there selling fab jewelry. They reached out earlier this year and sent me their sterling silver Byzantine link necklace.  But it got me thinking about how in this day and age of retailers closing left and right, how […]

    Just bought the Land’s End wrap dress in “Persimmon” and “Deep Sea” and it’s a stunner. Thanks for the recommendation!! It fits like a dream – just like my DVF wrap dresses. The fabric is softer and wrinkles a little more easily than my DVF dresses, but it fits, feels and looks great, and is one fifth the price. Win! The Persimmon is especially lovely and on trend. Thank you Allie!

    This color is in the capsule wardrobe I’m building; one of my favorites! I can’t get enough wrap dresses. Thanks for the LE tip!

  • Bridget Wall May 26, 2017

    This looks comfy, and such a great color, too!

  • Monica May 26, 2017

    I have that bag and I love it! FYI Right now Dagne Dover is having a spring sale – the totes are only $130. I might need to pick up another color. Also that dress print is amazing and so flattering. Might need one of those too and we can be twinsies. 🙂

    You look like a million bucks in this blue dress and I was SHOCKED to read that it is from Land’s End. I buy kids jackets and bathing suits (34DD and they really fit well) but had not thought of them for dresses. Have a great weekend!

  • Jodie Filogomo May 26, 2017

    Well, I won’t be the first to say this or probably the last, but this dress is totally a winner on you Allie!!

    You look marvellous in this dress and this shade of blue! Oh I could use that bag.

  • snaphappy May 26, 2017

    Another DANGER DANGER post! I ordered the dress! And I’ve been eyeing that necklace for a while after seeing it on your other posts . . . but it’s out of stock. Boooooo! I’ll keep looking.

    (And you know I already have that Dagne Dover tote, thanks to you . . .)

    • Allie at Wardrobe Oxygen May 26, 2017

      I think you’ll love the dress! As for the necklace, it should be back in stock soon, it’s one of their classic pieces. And yes to Dagne Dover, I love the bags!

      • snaphappy June 17, 2017

        I had to come back to tell you how much I LOVE this dress. It is REALLY flattering!! I just tried to order it in another pattern, but unfortunately, they are out of my size. 🙁 So glad I snagged it in the gorgeous blue!

    • snaphappy May 26, 2017

      Ok, I see it was out of stock at QVC but in stock at Ross-Simons!

  • Sonia May 26, 2017

    Love, love, love the wrap look dress on you and the shade of blue is gorgeous! Wraps always accentuate your figure nicely. The necklace pops without screaming, “Look at me.” You also reminded me that I have a Dagne Dover Mini in navy blue that I have to sell as its way too heavy for my needs. Have a super Memorial Day weekend.

    • Allie at Wardrobe Oxygen May 26, 2017

      Yes my friend, cull that bag collection, it’s not doing you any good and may make another person’s day! And I hope you too have a great weekend!

      • Sonia May 26, 2017

        Ha, ha, you’re right! I’ll be listing beginning this weekend.

  • Anamarie May 26, 2017

    You are rocking that blue dress! I am a sucker for a wrap dress, so of course I ordered it as well as the persimmon print dress. Not only were they on sale, but there was a promo code as well! 2 dresses for around $68, whaaaaat?

    • Allie at Wardrobe Oxygen May 26, 2017

      LOVE IT! That’s better than discount stores and big box retailers, but the quality is stellar as is the return policy if it doesn’t work out for you. Enjoy!

    This dress is fantastic on you. The blue is beautiful. A great office look.

  • Susan B. May 26, 2017

    Alison, you look so great in those bold prints! Fab dress.

  • Grace May 26, 2017

    You have been knocking it out of the ballpark – You Look great!
