Buy This, Not That

Forever 21 Hampton's Linen Dress $24.80


This dress combines two of my new favorite trends- the shirt dress and the military look. Genius! I just ordered the Forever 21 dress and am patiently waiting it's arrival. What do you think of the military look? Which dress would you choose?

Val - on my way to bed, but wanted to say congrats on finding the f21 - major score for sure. I'm a fan of military - it's a trend, but one I think we can incorporate certain pieces of for a longer period of time.

I love the Forever 21 dress; I might have to hop over to that site and get one :)

Although I adore Theory, for 1/13th of the price, I'd most definitely choose the Forever 21 version of this adorable dress. With your leftover money, you could totally splurge on a great belt too. Love the military look! Great find!

xo,
Lovely B.

I like the military look. I would go with the F21 dress and save my Theory purchase for something I could wear to work, etc. Love this post! I can't wait to see how you style the dress when it arrives.

I think I like the F21 dress better!

I just love this color! I can't wait to see what you think of the F21 dress. I just love Theory, but can't justify spending that kind of money when F21 hast it so much cheaper.

Great picks!

I'm sure the quality of the theory dress is nicer, but I like the sleeve better on the F21!
