Red, White, and Blue

I shared this dress on Instagram Stories while I was home in Florida and it was one of the most swiped stories I’ve ever done. This dress is EVERYTHING.

Let me start the story by saying that I have fallen in love with a $2,000 Gucci dress. LOL. Leave it to me. The dress had gorgeous grosgrain ribbon around it, just like you’d expect from Gucci. But $2,000. Ugh. The next day an order I placed from Macy’s showed up with a bunch of dresses I was going to try on for a sponsored post. One of the dresses ended up being even better than the Gucci one. Way more practical and way less expensive. I was so excited.

Highly, highly recommend it.

After I posted it on my Instagram, I got a bunch of questions about sizing. It’s not that structured so I imagine more than one size would work. I got the 2 which is the smallest size they offer and I’d normally order a 0. I’m not sure if that means everyone should size up or not. I wish I could be more helpful.

I also had people ask whether it was see-through. It is NOT! It’s pretty thick without being heavy, almost like a summer ponte material. While it wouldn’t work in every office environment, I do think it could work for some offices depending on the dress code, especially with the right accessories and shoes.

I think I’ll wear this throughout the summer with wedges (pictured), sneakers, and Jack Rogers.

As soon as I saw this I thought wow that looks like Gucci! What an amazing preppy find. I love the detailing down the sides of the dress, it makes it so flattering (I have a Lilly shift that with that detail and it makes the dress). Thanks for a perfect summer dress! xAllie


Love this! I have a couple of Macy’s gift cards I have yet to use… thank you for leading me to the perfect dress to order!
P.S. Tommy Hilfiger sells a suitcase that matches this dress!

That is a super cute dress! (Off topic question, do Jack Rogers make a ‘flip flop’ sound when you walk? I’ve been eyeing up the Draper James “Hello Darlin'” Jack Rogers, but I don’t want to be the person in my office everyone can hear walking in the summer…)


The sapphire diamond band was a gift for my birthday and I just bought the diamond one during my last visit to Tampa!

I worked on this campaign too (my post goes up next week) and when I was picking up my dress I almost sent you this one because it’s just so you! xo
