I have been coveting a new summer Maxi Dress for sometime now. To me, the Maxi really is the perfect dress. You can jazz it up with heels and accessories for a summer wedding, or just keep it casual with flip-flops and a denim jacket for a backyard BBQ. It’s so versatile!
During a recent trip to Nordstrom, I came across this beauty: the Jessica Simpson Sweetheart Charmeuse Maxi Dress. The dress SCREAMED summer. After examining the price tag – sadly – I made the decision that this dress and I were not meant to be.
As I was rushing through my shopping list about a week later at Target, I happened to pass by the Woman’s Clothing section, and THERE IT WAS!!!
The Xhilaration® Juniors Strapless Maxi Dress!! Simple. Colorful. Lightweight. All the characteristics I liked about the Jessica Simpson Dress, but CHEAP!!! Was it too good to be true?!?
As I headed to the dressing room, all the possible reasons the dress wouldn’t work were running through my mind. Weird cut . . . poorly made . . . they won’t have my size. NOT THE CASE AT ALL – The dress was PERFECT. I loooove it.
** The Xhilaration Strapless Maxi Dress is also offered in a second amazing print . . . which of course I snagged as well! HA! LOVE IT!
NOTE: The dress is SOLD OUT online, but I found plenty in stock at my local target. (Not sure why Target’s website says it’s not available in stores, because it most certainly is.)
