Life before this jersey dress was a sad affair. Before its simple cut, floral embellishment and waist-emphasizing tie belt came along, colors were duller, music was off-key and flowers smelled like cheap perfume. I'd like to thank Target for making my life complete with this $29.99 piece of heaven.

I'm not even kidding about my love for this dress, y'all. Over my year of not shopping, I was able to seriously analyze my wardrobe and zero in on categories I was lacking. Number one? Dresses. I love a good dress, which is essentially an outfit unto itself. With the right accessories, a good dress can take me from work to dinner to synagogue to drinks with friends (all in the same day? Whew. Sounds tiring.) This dress has been my go-to for meetings with potential grad school advisors, and I even convinced a coworker to buy it. We matched on Sunday.
|One of the interns asked if we were wearing the same dress. When I said yes, she said "Oooh.. awkward." As you can see, we matched on purpose... sadly, my 30x30 doesn't include a light brown cardi or it would have been perfect.|
On Friday, my sister asked if I was really doing the 30x30 challenge. When I replied in the affirmative, she shot back: "Well, I've been wearing the same skirt for the past 5 days. Take that." Word.
