The Perfect Black Summer Dress!

Since things are starting to heat up, I decided to go summer dress shopping. I SWORE that I would not buy anything thing black... and I ended up with a black summer dress. HAHA!

I bought this from Forever 21 for only
$13.50. I loved how it was a simple dress with huge scrunched shoulders to give it an edge. Its made of mostly cotton and a little bit of spandex. This is great because its stretchy and form fitting while still remaining comfy and breezy.

If you don't like black... I found it in several other colors:
-Black and Grey Horizontal Stripes
-Black and White Horizontal Stripes
-Electric Blue
-Grey with Black Polka Dots

This dress is super fun because it is easy to accessorize! You can pair it with heels, flats, sandals... chunky rings, earrings, waist belts, layered necklaces... THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!

This dress reminded me A LOT of something that you would see at American Apparel (I love their stuff but can't afford it) for
$36+! This dress from F21 is a cotton (95%) and spandex (5%) jersey knit dress... the same thing the American Apparel dresses are made of... So why pay the $22.50 more for practically the same thing!? Its definitely worth $13.50 out of my budget!

Below is a slide show of my dress
