Avenue sundresses! I’ve
raved talked about them before and worn them all year round for the past two years. Guess what? They are back!
These dresses are hands down some of my favorites and probably the most worn items in my entire closet. That is saying something! At this point I own maybe 6-7 of them? The fabric seems to vary from year to year but they all wash and hold up really well. Especially my very first – the black and white dress, worn here, here and here.
I feel like a broken record because I say this every time I write about one – but it is true!
So far there are only three prints released, last year a few more showed up as it got closer to summer. Take a look:
Yesterday morning I had to go return a few things at the Pinole Avenue and saw the third dress on the rack.
“No!” I thought to myself. “You don’t need another dress!”
So I started thinking about last year when I fooled myself into thinking that I didn’t want/need them or figured I could wait for a sale. In early summer, I changed my mind and ran around to my local stores, searching for the prints I wanted but they were scarce. The cute ones, especially in the larger sizes, disappear fast! Given how much I wear them, I figure paying full price ($24.90) saves me the driving/gas/worry/heartache later. My cost per wear is pennies anyway. It makes sense, right?
Either way, I had the credit and then some from the return so the pink/orange print came home with me. I might cave in and buy the blue floral as well. Now I just need the weather to cooperate! It is supposed to rain for the next few days.
