    Great summer dresses and the price are right.

  7. I love sundresses. As spring goes into summer I am definitely expanding my sundress collection. I just bought a maxi dress from marshall’s the other day for $20.

  8. I LOVE sundresses. Summertime is my favorite time of the year because I can wear all my sundresses and be cute and COMFORTABLE!

  9. Is there anything better than a cute and comfy sundress? I think not! These are great and so affordable. It’s time to go dress shopping!!

  10. I am a fan of sundresses, but I don’t like buying stuff I can’t wear to work. We’re casual everyday, but no spaghetti straps, so a lot of the sundresses stay in the store for me.

  11. Now that’s what I’m talking about- chic and affordable. Thanks.

  12. I absolutely love each and every one of these sundresses. The problem that I find though (especially with dresses at Old Navy) is that they don’t accomodate for the bigger chested ladies. While I am a 7 in the waist, I am heavy up top and ABSOLUTELY REFUSE to have my chest pouring out of the top or the sides of a dress. Because of this, I have to steer clear of most of them.

  13. i love the f21 dresses!! now lets see if they have any faith21 dresses that are just as cute =/

  14. i love that purple dress. Ordering right now from forever 21. Darn BGG, you always making me broke! lol

  15. I’m in love with all of the forever 21 dresses. I love spring and summer cause it’s the only time I get to wear dresses.

  16. I have the same problem as Miss Mika. Dresses that look cute on other girls look scandalous on me, haha! I only get sundresses with enough coverage on top, so that happens verrry rarely.
