Blue & White Dress

SheInside Dress, Mar Y Sol Bag c/o Piperlime, Ferragamo Flats, Thierry Lasry Sunglasses, Jane Pope Rings

We took a quick little day trip out to Sonoma last Sunday to enjoy the warm weather and relax downtown. It’s one of our favorite places to head to when the weather is on the gloomy side in the city. I wore this blue & white mini that I recently bought for under $20. I was a little hesitant at first, not knowing if the quality and fit would be that great, but I was pleasantly surprised when it came in the mail. I received so many compliments on it all day long and just really fell in love with it’s flattering shape. It’s a great little dress perfect for summer festivities. While I’ll wear it with heels and a nice clutch for upcoming weddings, I do love it with flats and casual tote.

I can’t believe that dress is under $20… What a steal! This look is such proof that with the right styling and accessories, clothing doesn’t have to be expensive to look tasteful and glam. I love mixing budget friendly clothes with luxury accessories, so this outfit is right up my alley! Fab post!

I see that it only sells in one size, I am a medium- do you think it would fit?

Hi Angelina,

I’m usually a size small and this dress fits pretty well. It is a little big around my waist, so I would put it in the small/medium category. Hope that helps!

I always think that I haaaave to push the envelope and wear contrasting colors or color block, but I have to remind myself that its okay to be “matchy,” like this outfit! Cobalt for the win! :)

I’m super tempted to buy this dress since it’s so cheap, but the size says it’s just “One Size” :/ … How did that work out?

Julia June 19, 2014 at 1:04 am

Hi Rachel,

I would say that it’s in the small/medium size category. I’m usually a small and it fits pretty good, but is a little big around my waist. It is short though-I’m 5’5″- just to give you a visual.

Hope that helps!

xx Julia

When I first read that it was under $20 I almost went into shock! It fits you perfectly, like it was tailor made for you! Love it, Julia!

Hi Julia, This dress is beautiful, would you be able to tell me what size you usually wear? I am a little nervous about the one size, I am petite (4’11) and typically wear between a 2 and 4.

Reply

Julia June 19, 2014 at 1:05 am

Hi Katie,

The dress would probably be a great fit on you. It’s a little on the shorter side (I’m 5’5″) and would not want it any shorter. I’m usually between a 2 and 4 as well and it fits pretty well. I am planning on having it taken in a little on the waist, but well worth it for $20!

Hope that helps!

xx Julia

Oh my goodness!! $20?!?! That is such a cute piece! I really want to snatch it up, but I’m worried that it would be super short on me since I’m a little taller than you. It looks great on you though! :)

That dress looks so great on you! On the model it looks kind of cheap and ill-fitting, but it looks absolutely perfect on you. The one size thing is a little strange, but I appreciate you responding to other commenters regarding the sizing!

Super adorable dress and looks great on you. I actually went crazy for it and purchase it 5 days ago. But I’m having problems with the shipment, they are telling me that it will take 2 more weeks to get it shipped. Did that happened to you? I just want to know if the website is trustable. Thanks in advance for your answer!

Best Regards!

Hi I am wanting to buy from SheInside and I am not sure about it. Would you say Sheinside is a good place and not a scam?
