Splurge Vs. Steal: Little Floral Tops

The other day I was flipping through the clothing section of the latest Victoria’s Secret catalog and was admiring these adorable little floral-print tops. Later, I was really excited to see that Forever21 has something similar that preserves the very cute and girly look channeled by Victoria’s Secret. They look awesome with casual shorts and slacks and double as awesome cover-ups to throw over your bikini as you head to the beach or pool. Viva warm weather!

Floral Frocks Taking Over Hollywood

Leighton Meester All of a sudden, floral print mini dresses are everywhere I look. Every time I open a magazine, I see another celeb sporting one of these cute lil’ flowery creations. Mmmm, all I can think of is summer delights such as ice cream in the park and frolicking in the sun.

Leighton Meester’s halter dress is from Alice + Olivia, priced at $440. Lindsay Lohan’s is from the more affordable UK chain TopShop; my number-crunching showed that this dress costs approximately $66. Lindsay Lohan However, if these prices are out of your budget, head over to Forever21, where you can find similar items for $25 or under.

I use F21 clothes and accessories in many of my posts because there really is no better place to find celebrity and designer-inspired duds on the cheap. At the moment, the beloved retailer appears to be flooded with ultra-feminine mini dresses. There were so many to choose from on the website that I picked out just a couple of examples.

For the gal who doesn’t think she can quite handle the undeniable girliness of these oh-so-lovely frocks, there is no need to worry. Just wear ’em with with edgy accessories such as studded belts, clutches and shoes and voila! You may also consider opting for a more dramatic, “grown-up” color palette that has less yellows and more purples and reds.
