This isn’t a usual KFDC post, but it was inspired out of… frustration. Over a trivial matter, but frustration nonetheless. I don’t know what kinds of ads pop up in other people’s social media feeds, but I often see them for very cute, comfy looking dresses from brands I’m not familiar with. This is where I give social media credit for knowing me — lately, that is exactly the kind of apparel I like to wear between the workout clothes I keep on most of the day and the pajamas I put on before bed. They are easy to throw on, relaxed for hanging out in at home, breezy on an evening walk, and cute for a possible socially distanced back (or front) yard hang with friends.
What social media apparently hasn’t figured out about me is that I will not pay an obscene amount of money for said apparel. And that’s where the frustration comes in. I click through these ads, excited about the perfect dress, only to find it costs a ridiculous amount of money, especially considering the world’s current circumstances.
Thus, this post. I figured I can’t be the only one experiencing this frustration, so I scoured some lower budget brands — of which I’m quite familiar — and found dresses, all under $25, that I think are perfect for right now. These are not sponsored, just a round-up that helped ease my frustration and, possibly, others’ as well. Happy shopping — and dress wearing!
