This “pinafore dress” from Zara is reminding me of one of those old-timey bathing suits from the 1800s, which is reminding me of the episode of “Seinfeld” where Newman wears one of those bathing suits while yelling “Olly olly oxen free!” and cannonballing into a pool, which is a lovely memory, but not really an image I want my fashion choices to evoke. I’ll take a pass. [$90, Zara]
It can be tough to find appropriate clothing for a conservative office environment, especially during spring and summer, when sleeves disappear and hemlines rise dramatically.

I fell instantly in love with this red lace dress Emma Roberts wore to a party in Beverly Hills. It’s fun, flattering, and since I’m going through a red period right now (not as menstrual as it sounds), I’m especially taken with the color.

I dug up three other pretty red lace dresses for $70 or less, from size 3 to 2X. Shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »

Or, like, mini golfing? To solve this conundrum, I tracked down 10 plus-size dresses that are really, truly casual and really, truly cute. Click through to the gallery to check ‘em out!

ModCloth is now selling The Cheryl Dress, a garment named after the current recipient of my fangirl writer worship, Cheryl Strayed. “This sleek frock is perfect for a confident, successful woman like you, who has found wisdom in the journey and not the destination,” says the item description.

Nope, the name Tulip dress doesn’t refer to the pattern — it’s actually a reference to the shape of the skirt, which flares out and then comes back in at the hem, mimicking the shape of a tulip. This style is great for girls who are lacking in the hip department, and they provide a flattering alternative to a typical fit-and-flare skirt style.
