Great material, I’ve already washed once and it doesn't feel cheaply made and is super soft and comfy. Very happy with my order!" — sontahmaria

A scalloped off-the-shoulder swing dress
Perfect for days you want to look super classy and elegant. Reviewers have pointed out that this dress seems to run a tad big so you may want to size down!

Promising review: "I bought this for my company Christmas party. It was a runaway hit — so much so that people who didn't attend the party were asking about the dress because so many people said how pretty it was. I was called 'Marilyn' since I wore this with red patent heels and classic red lipstick. The fabric had enough give to make it comfortable to wear the whole night without feeling constricted. The fabric itself is smooth, of a good weight, and irons to a crisp finish. I am 5'4" and the skirt hits several inches below the knee. I bought a petticoat to wear with it, and while you may not need it, it does add to the drama." — Christine Garcia

Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and 28 styles).
A pretty printed top
So you can bring sunshine vibes with you everywhere you go!

Promising review: "I love it. If you are on the fence, I'd say go for it! It fits like a peplum top. It is just long enough to come right at the top of my thighs. You could wear it with a cami underneath to work. I will wear it with high-waisted jeans/pants as that seems appropriate. The sleeve length is wide and half sleeve in length. The tie to make a bow makes it girly which I love." — Sheila Evans

Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes L–4XL and 30 styles).
A faux suede mini skirt
So you can show off those legs!

Promising review: "I adore this skirt. It's my new favorite piece in my closet. So soft, just the right amount of stretchy, just the right amount of thick. I expected low quality for the price, but it doesn't feel low quality at all. I'm pleasantly surprised." — Christine Scanlan

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and six colors).
A puff-sleeve blouse
It'll make you feel like you should be strutting down a runway.

Promising review: "SO worth it! The ultimate drama sleeve!! I got so many compliments at work. The shirt looks WAY more expensive than it was, and the sleeves are just so gorgeous." — Katherine Anzola
