{Guest Post} Spring 2013 Dress Trends

As you’ve probably figured out by now – I’m a big fan of dresses. Especially in the Spring. I’ve had visions of beautifully colored and print-covered dresses dancing through my head for months now – Since the Spring 2013 collections were shown actually. Today the writer of I Wish It Were Anthropologie, But…  will be sharing her Spring 2013 dress picks with us.

Here’s the thing… I love Anthropologie but I don’t love the price. This white eyelet dress from Anthropologie is simple and chic, and can easily be dressed up or dressed down. But it is already over $100 for just the dress. You’ll still need to buy the tights, shoes, and accessories! In all it’ll put you well over $200.

I found a white eyelet dress from H&M for only $29.95. With that price you can easily find the rest of the pieces to complete the outfit for under $100.oo. Giving you a $100.oo for more shopping! Who doesn’t want that!

Now here is a nice coral eyelet dress that will be perfect for when it really starts to warms up this Spring! A versatile piece like this will be cute with either the boots or the flats and you can easily can add a cardigan to transform it into a work outfit. Again, choosing this Old Navy dress over the pricier Anthropologie version will give you almost $100 in savings.

You are really racking up the dough now!


{Left – $128 @ Anthropologie & Right – $30 @ Target}

This two-toned maxi dress has the same cut and color blocking style. However, the Target maxi has a pattern on the bottom and does not have pockets. Nevertheless these are quite similar style-wise and the Target dress will run roughly $100 less than the Anthropologie version.

There ya have it folks! Three amazing Spring-Summer looks, which save you $300.oo. Ready to get shopping? I sure am!
