PSA: Kate Spade Inspired ... for under $40!

I came across these pretty dresses from Forever21's "Love" line - I love their bold print! I will probably try the red/orange one!

They are a tad short, weighing in at 33" for a small size, but I think their flare shape makes it a bit more okay - and they didn't look that short on me. Cottony with 3% spandex!

Leave no retail stone unturned, as per Angie! :)

I also picked up the cutest hair clips ever (#3) and cuff bracelet (#4) - ah, such a fun place! And I wanted to experiment with colours I never wear; so I picked up a dotty number in yellow (#5) - we'll see if I can make it work! What a challenge!

    Ooh, love the stripes and the dots. I hope they work - you are right, so KS.

    Those are quirky and cute and I can totallu see them working on you Lyn! I think the dotty dress will look so sweet with a white jacket for summer.

    Very cute dresses! I go as short as 33" so I think you could do it even better, I think you might be a tad shorter then me? (I'm 5'5.5"). Those hair clips are the best!

    These are very cute, very Kate Spade. I could never go as short as 33 in., I'm too tall, I'd have to wear them with skinny jeans or cigarette pants. My fav is the one you bought, #3, can't wait to see how you style it!

    If I remember you are 5'6" but you are also young and slim and very cute so I can see the shorter style working well for you. Perhaps not for work but for those rare times when you aren't either working or exhausted.

    Great finds Lyn and nice that we can get them locally.

    Those are cute! I may have to see if I can get them to work for me.

    Alas, I am not 5'3" - I wish; do you know how many cute dresses I'd be able to wear? I'm a tall 5'7" ... 35" is usually the shortest I ever go! Maybe they will have a good hem?

    I am planning to wear it with either solid tights or an underlayer at work; or try some pants or jeans like Karie suggested :)

    Those dresses are lovely! The colourful stripes are very Kate Spade. Will look fantastic on you!

    Very Kate Spade, and I can totally see you in these!

    Cute. Can you please explain this mustache icon trend? I don't really understand it. Seems a bit like Mr. Potato Head for your clothes. What's next, ears?

  • cobaltblue replied 5 years ago

    Argh, these are too cute, and I just can't go as short as 33"!

  • lyn* replied 5 years ago

    @ Nicole - I dunno; they're just kinda cute. I've liked them before they were hipster cool though :p

    I love F21 for a little experimentation. They do great interpretations of runway designers.
