Dress – Calvin Klein via Marshalls (similar)
Belt – HOBO the Original (similar)
ShoesMossimo for Target
Coat – LOFT via eBay (similar)
Bag – HOBO the Original (similar)

Okay, so when I went to Marshalls this weekend for pillows I picked up a pair of shoes… and also this dress. It was on the clearance rack, it was missing its belt (no loss, usually the standard-issue belts suck anyway) and had a few stray threads and was $30 (original department store tag said this dress sold for $118). Calvin Klein dresses always fit me great, so I bought it without even trying it on, figuring that if it didn't fit I could return it. I think it's a fun dress that can dress up or down (imagine it with a sparkly belt for an evening affair), and the crepe fabric makes it work year round.

    Plenty of “breathing” room; I get it!  😉

    Allie, I love your dress, it’s such a flattering color and silhouette.  Your header looks great also.

    Yep, I know I should stay consistent for a brand and all that jazz, but I keep changing my tastes (like my clothes!). I wanted something a little less distracting, took up less space and as my sister said having the letters spaced out like this fits with Wardrobe Oxygen – oxygen between the letters 🙂

    You changed the banner again!  You change it as often as you do your outfits!  I like it…a clean and neat font.

    Could I have said “too” more times than I did?  Jeez.

    I love CK dresses too – they fit me better than any other brand, so it seems.  I love scoring them for clearance at Ross, TJ Maxx or Marshalls too!  What a great find with this red one!  Love the pink + leopard accents too.

    Calvin Klein dresses never fit me 🙁  I think they cut for full chests and straighter hips.
    You’re perfect!

    Love this dress! It looks so effortless. The pink belt with the lovely pink coat just adds another level. Again, I am dying for a WW update, you look so slender! I really wish I could stand heels because I love leopard shoes.

    Fantastic dress. A ruffle detail on a streamlined piece really appeals to me.

    That dress is fantastic!!! I love the pink with it!! You’re very good at color blocking. I’m doing dress week all week. I sure picked a heck of a week with the cold, rainy weather. LOL!

    That dress is so cool – I love the top! And you are so right, most belts that come with dresses are terrible!

    I’m in love with the pink coat over the beautiful red dress! Plus, you know how I feel about leopard! 😉 Leopard as a neutral is one of my favorite trends EVER, especially when paired with red.

    I love the red dress with its soft ruffles and it fits you PERFECTLY!  That coat is getting to be a favorite of mine and you’ve found so many different outfits to wear it with.  All in all, you look very professional and fashion forward!
