Purple Polyester

This dress was $10 at Target. Score!


Dress, Merona. Earrings, Ali’s Boutique. Bracelets, The Bead Factory. Shoes, Wet Seal

For $10, I didn’t get silk, but I really have no problem with modern polyester. It’s the old-school, double-knit stuff that is kind of horrible. Polyester or silk (or maybe it's nylon), the dress makes delightful swishing sounds and moves well.


I tried to get artsy with today’s detail shots:


Then, I just got silly, instead:

Love the dress. It has great movement. I especially love the top of it. The shoes are a perfect fit to give the outfit pop!

WHAT a glorious color on you!

I agree - today's polyester is so much higher quality (and it's usually washable!). I rarely buy silk because of the amount of care involved.

I love this dress! Gorgeous! You look lovely (and silly in that last picture, hee).

I am extremely jealous of your earrings. In fact, I'm jealous of all your peacock stuff. I LOVE peacock stuff and I only rarely seem to run across it.
