AN EXPENSIVE LOOK FOR AN AFFORDABLE PRICE
I love wearing dresses because I only have to choose one item out of my closet to complete an entire outfit. When that dress also looks and feels expensive, I am downright giddy. Especially if it only looks expensive, but is very affordable. This is one reason that I love partnering with Walmart. You’ll hear more reasons in this post, so keep reading.
First off, this dress (here) is one of the most flattering dresses that I’ve ever bought. I am in love with this print!!! The gorgeous colors remind me of a beautiful Peacock with its feathers all spread wide-open. And, like a Peacock, I feel like strutting when I put on this dress. ?
This dress had a fun and flirty detail, the flutter sleeve. The flutter sleeve is so cute, but it is also flattering. It creates visual interest, and it doesn’t fit tight against your arm, which helps to make your arm appear thinner.
The full skirt of this dress is another flattering detail. I love hearing the swish of the dress when I walk, and the full skirt also helps to make my waistline appear thinner. For me, I could stop right there because I am sold on the dress already. Anything that allows my waist look smaller is coming home with me. Because the dress fits tighter around the waist and then flares out, the waist looks smaller! BTW, I am wearing a medium in the dress.
Another fun and flirty detail is this high split up the side. Only a tiny bit of leg will show because this slit is only open a little bit above your knee. Don’t worry if you don’t have perfect legs, this will only give a glimpse of your legs, and it is very tasteful.
I added these metallic platform sandals (here) to give me extra height. A wedge is the most comfortable way to wear heels. It helps to support your foot for the entire length of the shoe, making you feel more stable. The footbed in this shoe is very comfortable, and the wide straps keep your foot from moving around. These will be your go-to shoes for this spring. You will wear them with dresses, crops, shorts, and especially those extra-long flare jeans.
I wanted to show you this cute and versatile straw bag (here) The round style of this bag is so chic that you can carry it all of the time. It has plenty of room inside for all of your essential items, plus it can also double as a beach/pool tote. I love that it has two different sides so that I can show only the plain straw side if I want.
Another reason that I love partnering with Walmart is that I can do all of my shopping there, not just my fashion. I have been cooking a lot lately, so I’ve ordered new bakeware from them, and I can’t wait to get that. I’ve also been ordering some beauty supplies, such as the new lipstick and mascara that I am wearing today. Both items are from Maybelline, and the lip stain is the Superstay 24 Color in the color Stay Scarlet (here), and the mascara is the Mega Plush Volume Express (here) in black. Fashion, beauty, groceries, kitchen supplies, etc., can all be found online or at your local Walmart.
Everything that I am wearing today is well under $40.00. Walmart makes it so easy for us to look our best at a price that we can afford. If you would like a coordinated summer wardrobe, then check out all of the items below, and they are also below $40.00, and many of them are below $20.00.

Walmart is a perfect partner for me on the blog. They were founded on the concept of everyday low prices, and that is still their #1 promise to shoppers. Walmart offers free 2-day shipping on most orders that are over $35.00 and also free returns. You can ship to your home or your local store and return items there too. Walmart makes it very convenient for their customers, especially since most people have a store within 10 miles of their homes.

Loved your outfit today! So much, that I ordered the dress and sandals for myself! Hopefully it’ll look as good on me as it does on you! ?
You look beautiful my dear!!
? thanks so much!
If you got it, flaunt it, I always say but alas my arms are not something I want to expose the poor world too. They should be grateful. I do love this dress and its flutter sleeves. I’m starting get into patterns a lot more. All solids all the time can get boring. I buy from Walmart and like anywhere you buy ritzy or budget, you’re lucky to find things you love. Not all expensive clothes live up to the quality they should either. Long live Walmart!
My arms aren’t what they used to be. But, they still do the job that they were intended to do, so I am happy for that.
BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the dress on you! Quick question: you are wearing a medium….is there stretch in it? I see it’s 100% rayon, but was wondering if I am between sizes on their size chart, would you recommend going up or down? Thanks! Really, really pretty!
Carrie, the material doesn’t have stretch, but the back is smocked so it has a lot of give to it.
I love this dress!! My colors and design.
I thought it was a gorgeous dress.
Love the dress! Your posts are always great
Truthfully, I am feeling to blah right now! Don’t like my hair, figure, skin, you name it!
Thanks for some smiles.
Jes, I hope you feel better soon. But, I am glad that I can bring a smile to your face. ?
Very cute! You look wonderful.
Tania, love the dress and it looks great on you I haven’t seen it at our Walmart ,thanks for sharing with us.
Daphne, I am not sure if you can find the Scoop brand in the Walmart stores. I know that it isn’t carried in my store, but it might be in larger stores.
Love this dress & it looks great on you! I don’t normally wear dresses but I really like this. Will check it out!
I love wearing dresses, and this one is super cute!
The dress is cute. I’m wondering about the large cut-out in the back. Does a regular bra show, or do you need to wear a special one?
You don’t need any special type of bra, my regular bra worked fine and didn’t show.
Love this look and a great color for you. What size are you wearing? We are about the same.
I am wearing a medium and it fits great.
That dress is beautiful on you! So glad that you are showing clothing options from Walmart that are certainly affordable and look nice.
Connie, I especially love Scoop, Time and Tru, Sofia Jeans, and EV1 brands for clothing from Walmart.
love dresses for the same reason, so easy to get ready in the morning. you look great!
Exactly, Mary! No having to stand and wonder what matches. I grab a dress and the decision making is done. Lol!
Love the dress! What size are you wearing in it? I only ask because we are about the same size.
I forgot to mention that, thanks I’ll go in and correct the post. I am wearing a medium.
Lovely dress and bag from Walmart. I wish they carried the same quality in Canada but they don’t.
I am sorry, Janet. I wonder why they would be different???
I really like the “Scoop” brand. I had never ordered clothing from Walmart online until your last post. I bought the red and blue dress and I love it! Thank you!
Kellie, the Scoop brand has become one of my favorites. The quality is really nice, especially for the price.
I love that you dressed up today. You look nice. I miss wearing my nice clothes now.
I still love dressing up also. It makes me feel so much better.
Very flattering and the back is really cute too. Beautiful colors grest dress for all of your summer events.
I agree, Monica. I can’t wait to wear this for my Summer events.
