My New Favorite Dress Cost Less Than $30


For those of you who are longtime readers of Keep Calm and Chiffon, you know that a photo shoot with Sarah Ratner always warrants a warning: Lots of pictures to follow. Whether it's in Central Park or Chinatown we always get into a groove of shooting some awesome images (and of course, catching up on our lives in between takes).

This weekend, we switched up our boroughs and wandered around Bushwick, peering in to cute cafés, stopping in front of millennial pink buildings and turquoise blue doorwayspretty much anything that would serve as a great background for my new favorite warm weather purchase. I was browsing Reformation's website when I came across this dress that I was obsessed with. But part of me couldn't help but wonder if something similar (read: cheaper) was out there. A few minutes surfing the Forever 21 dresses page and boom! I came across this dress.

For less than $30, I feel like this is a dress that I'll get a ton of use out of. For a slightly edgier feel, I added a layered necklace and my new favorite boots. They're from this awesome brand called Teleport that we sell on the NYLONShop, and I haven't been able to take them off.
