Recent Purchases: 2 Hits, 1 Not Sure & 1 Miss

Hit:
 

When I saw this on ShopBop.com on Monday I knew I had to have it!  The dress is by Tucker and is such a pretty, unusual color and has sort of a vintage feel to it.  It runs on the big side but the matching sash can be used to tighten things up.

 

I really love this Parker dress that I got from ShopBop.com (the picture is from Intermix).  It runs a little big so definitely size down if you're in between sizes.

Not Sure:
 
 
This Alice & Olivia color is a gorgeous poppy red but the fit on me was a little off.  It was HUGE! I got and xs and was literally swimming in it...I'm going to take it to the tailor and see if he can work some magic on it.

Miss:
 

I was so sad that this Rag & Bone dress didn't work out.  It's just way to big and not very flattering.  I absolutely love the floral print that shows through the top layer...Size down if you're thinking of purchasing.

The Parker dress is too cute! Post a modeling pic if you can. I'm thinking of buying it as well. Also, do you know how Parker tends to run because there is also a cami I have been eyeing.

^ I will post a pic of the dress when I wear it, promise :)! Parker tops usually are a little on the shorter side and overall the body of both dresses and tops are a little on the bigger side. HTH!

The first dress is so sweet! I love the pattern they're great for the summer and transition into fall too! I found a great dress like your from the ADAM (Adam Lippes) collection and a super sweet pair of heels from Calypso all for great prices...gotta love a deal :)

I got the Tucker dress from Shopbop and unfortunately is was full price...It runs really big.

The Steve Madden shoes are from 2 years ago and I have no idea what the name is cause I threw out the box, sorry! They might have something similar in the store though!

Hope that helps!
