I can’t believe the year is almost over! Where did 2013 go? I haven’t even decorated the house yet but I did get some shopping done (click here for some stylish gift ideas ) and I do have something to wear for New Year’s (Christmas is at home and I plan to proudly sport some comfy sweats and a ugly christmas sweater). I always go all out on New Year’s and wear a pretty dress – it’s not often I get to do it so I take full advantage of it. This year I can’t really take it to the max but I do love the dress I will be wearing. When I do go all out I try to stay away from the typical gaudy dresses that I see all over the place for New Year’s. I look for pieces that are fun, flirty and more importantly something I can wear more than once. Below are some fabulous dresses all perfect for New Year’s for under $50.

I can’t believe that school starts in less than a month down here in Florida and in September for a majority of others. It’s gone by way too fast but with the sadness of summer being almost over comes the excitement of some fall favorite’s like football, back to school shopping and for girls shopping for homecoming dresses! I have a bunch of boys so I don’t exactly have the pleasure of going out shopping for a pretty dress but I fondly recall my school dances and I do wish I had the selection girls have now a day. With a little savvy shopping, girls can buy a unique dress as opposed to the carbon copies I found lined in the boutique store fronts in Brooklyn, and most dresses today can be worn a ton of other times (if you don’t go too frilly).
Check out some tips on picking a unique homecoming dress under $200 that can be worn more than once. I also included some accessories and tips on what to wear them with below.
Look for little details like beading or tulle that make a dress look more expensive and can dressed up now or down later on.
I know girls love a floor length dress because it feels glamorous, but if you want to get the most for your dollar skip them. If not shop online shops for dresses under $100 and look for simple lines so they won’t quickly go out of style.
Avoid satin. Yes they look expensive and pretty but they also scream formal and most girls will have some form of satin on. Instead look for dresses in a matte jersey, with some tulle or if you have to have satin, look for ones with some ruching for a flirty feel.
This is where you can go all out! There’s a ton of affordable accessories out there so pile it on and have fun! Try big colorful necklaces for a fun pop of color; add sparkly jewelry to bright dresses or try some simple gold jewelry that you can wear over and over again.
Use online shoe stores to your benefit. It’s almost impossible not to find a pair of stylish shoes under $100 and in a lot of cases you can even get a second pair free or half off . But make sure you order early in case you need to exchange them.
Besides my kids excitement for Easter egg hunts and candy filled baskets, I always try to fit in a little Easter outfit shopping for myself. The kids generally stick to the traditional themed attire for the day, but for me the Easter outfit consists of a functional dress that allows me look stylish while also participating in the egg hunt and other festivities. I also try to pick a dress that can be worn all through spring and preferably even summer. This Easter I’ll be wearing a lace shift dress and flats to keep me comfy all day! Check out some of the pretty spring dresses from Target below that are perfect for Easter.
A dainty lace dress similar to the one I’m wearing above is feminine enough for day or night.
This seersucker dress screams spring and is pretty much a no brainer. It’s sort of a grown up version of a little girls Easter outfits. 🙂 Wear with a light cardigan and pumps for a traditonal spring look.
Any dress with pockets is alright with me! This floral dress for only $24.99 is one of those dresses that can be worn all year round. It can be paired with a pair of wedges on Easter morning or a blazer and tights for work.
A tulip wrap dress with a retro floral print plus a denim jacket is flawless! Pair with bright heels for a sexy vibe.
Get a celeb worthy look like Naomi Watts’ with this white shift dress. Shift dresses are so flattering and never ever go out of style.
It’s Time for Springtime.

You really cant wrong with sequins – whether it’s for a prom or just a fun night out – they instantly give off a magical, princess-like vibe that dominated the Spring 2013 runways and will never go out of style. One of my favorite stars that’s the perfect example off how magical sequins can make you look and feel is Taylor Swift. With her trademark ruby red lips, she’s rocked the sequins on many red carpets and always looks flawless! Tip: For a little more glamour and edge, add metallic heels (another huge trend) and a black clutch… and keep the jewelry simple! The dress will do all the work. Get Taylor’s look for less with pieces from David’s Bridal, Heels.com and many more!
