How Would You Style This Dress

Happy Saturday, ladies. I’m home from Mexico and feeling pretty lucky we’re getting a string of nice-ish weather. I wouldn’t call it balmy, but it’s nice enough to get out for a walk and break out my white jeans. Our flight was delayed several hours coming home, so we didn’t crawl into bed until way past midnight and have vowed never to fly through LAX again…let’s see how long that lasts because it’s a pretty important hub on the west coast.

It’s time for our weekly discussion on fashion. Each week my friend Pam and I share a mannequin we’ve seen and ask how you might wear what it’s modeling. Last week we discussed Ikat pants, which many of you loved!


This week, I want to hear your thoughts on Chico’s 40th Anniversary Ikat Clip Dot Dress. It’s a lightweight rayon blend that’s flowy, graceful, and available in both petite and regular.

Chico’s started as a very bohemian brand with lots of ethnic prints. Over the years, they’ve added neutrals and some classic pieces, but they love to go back to their roots, as in these Ikat patterns. I don’t wear a lot of bohemian items, but these earrings caught my eye. Here are a few other fun pieces in this current collection:

Now back to the dress…let’s get this conversation started. What sort of event might you wear it to? Would you dress it down, or could you picture it dressed up? Is the pattern over the top for you, or does the colorway make it subtle?

Bestsellers on AWSL this week:


What caught my eye from the weekend sales:

Spring break is right around the corner, which means it’s time for the Nordstrom Spring Sale, with up to 60% off

J CREW FACTORY has 40% off their entire site…which is priced very well before the sale:)

  • I’m obsessed with these cotton gauze shirts. I took two to Mexico, and they laundered like a dream! In fact, better than the one I paid more for, so I will be revisiting JCF soon!
  • I’m betting these white jeans are pretty great, so I’ll be giving them a try

BANANA REPUBLIC FACTORY has 50% off everything

TALBOTS is having a stock up for spring sale, buy one, get one 50% off.

Let’s head over and have some fun sharing styling ideas for Pam’s mannequin on Over 50 Feeling 40.

Have a great weekend, and be sure to wear what makes you feel confident.
