Sometimes a single item of clothing has the ability to be simultaneously simple and exciting. I couldn’t believe my luck when I stumbled upon this gorgeous maxi dress by Tart…in T.J. Maxx. My eyes bulged out a bit when I saw the tag: similar maxi dresses by Tart retail for over $200, many close to $300. The price tag on this little beauty? $39.99. Be still, my heart.
Even though it is simple to look at, the construction is beautiful. The neckline plunges just deep enough to be sexy but not vulgar. The ruched detailing on the top gives it some texture, and the material drapes on the body beautifully. I also love that the skirt is slightly gathered where it meets the top half of the dress, which really keeps the maxi from clinging (nobody wants VPL…)!
