i don’t often spy a dress that will work for (nearly) all figures, (nearly) all occasions and (nearly) all budgets. in fact, it almost never happens. so when one comes along, i can’t help but shout it from the rooftops! it just so happens that this rachel pally frock is exactly that kind of dress.
this dress just screams for a weekend – dressed up, it’s your go-to wedding guest dress, or pair it with a tan flipflop and it’s perfect for any casual outing. top it with a cardi or a jacket and it’s a great option for the office as well (just keep that sweater buttoned, please!). the length is ultra-flattering, the color is sweet but not saccharine (and not so nude that you risk being washed out), the cut is oh-so-forgiving, and the accessorizing options are literally endless.
plus, it’s 30% off at basic boutique through 4/16 with code TAXBREAK (as is anything else at basic that you fall for!). that brings it down to about $165, which still isn’t a steal, but trust me, you’ll wear this more than enough times to make it worthwhile.
