Why do we love wrap dresses? Let us count the ways: 1) they’re expandable and contractible, meaning they work during bloated times and thin days; 2) they always flatter our cleavage region; and 3) more often than not, they’re actually comfortable. Why do we love this wrap dress in particular? Because it features our three favorite wrap dress elements and comes in a great length, cool print and classic colors. What’s not to like?
We’ve had a thing for this Anthropologie skirt (left) for a while now. The bright colors are alluring, the shape is flattering, and we just want it, dammit. A rather unattractive price tag, however, has held us back. That, after all, is not the sort of skirt you can wear all the time without being called out on it. So, imagine our pleasure when we came across this similar style at Fred Flare (right). The two colorful skirts share their whimsy, but the black waistband, somewhat more streamlined shape, and much prettier price tag make the Fred Flare version a whole lot easier to pull off.

There are crushes, girl crushes, and clothing crushes, and all of them involve falling hard, whether the object of our affection is a coworker or a lovely lace dress. We’ve officially developed a clothing crush on this sweet Fred Flare dress. We’d wear it with ballet flats, dainty flat sandals, or a pair of pumps when we take it out on the town. What’s so wrong with wanting to spoil our new clothing companion?
Every spring we feel an overwhelming desire to stock up on sunglasses. Never mind the already-extensive collections we have, the “But I’m protecting my eyes!” justifications begin and we’re totally beyond reason. This, as you can imagine, can become a rather expensive habit. These rather adorable, slightly over-the-top Fred Flare sunnies, however, quench our buying thirsts without maiming our credit card bills. Plus, everyone needs a pair of “I’m Famous” sunglasses!
We don’t know how Easter became associated with chocolate bunnies and colored eggs, but after one bite of these Vosges creations we really don’t care. Wrapped in silky ribbon bows, these high quality chocolate bunnies come in three fancy flavors. Try the buttery toffee flavor for a smooth milk chocolate taste, or the Barcelona concoction that includes notes of sea salt and smoked almonds. Or how about the orchid vanilla for a creamy blend of dark chocolate and Tahitian vanilla? For only 14 bucks, this is 2.5 ounces of pure bliss.
“So, how often are you flossing?” your dentist asks.
“Uhhh … you know, everyday,” you lie.
He gives you a condescending look.
“Well … sometimes I get a little lazy, so maybe every other day,” you add.
“OK, FINE! Whenever I feel like it, OK?”
How is it that dentists always manage to make you feel like a failure? They should know that flossing is just plain annoying. So maybe if you make it more fun with this cupcake-flavored floss, you’d actually do it from time to time, and pass your next exam with flying colors (or pearly whites).
