The Fashion Magpie Goat Dress

Scape GOAT.

I’d crossed paths with the designer label Goat a couple of times over the past years, but it wasn’t until Megan Markle showed up at a recent event in an elegant Goat dress (shown above and below) that I did a triple/quadruple take and took a more earnest interest in their wares.

The Fashion Magpie Goat Flavia Dress

I am in love.  If I were a working woman with a boundless budget, I’d wear Goat nearly every day of the week — their dresses are demure, ladylike, and sophisticated, but they somehow eschew the stodginess you might expect.  But since I’m me — a stay-at-home writer and chaser-of-a-one-year-old, I think I’ll need to save up for just one of them for a special occasion, and I’m torn between the following:

A PLEATED MIDI IN HYDRANGEA BLUE

A TIERED FLORAL MAXI FOR A SUMMER WEDDING

A TIMELESS JACKIE O. INSPIRED SHIFT IN PETAL PINK

A SEQUIN-TRIMMED MINI — A PERFECT GETAWAY DRESS FOR A BRIDE!!!

PSA: TheOutnet has an excellent selection of heavily discounted Goat styles!

Second PSA: You can get the Goat look for less with this or this.  And speaking of getting the look for less, you know that Lisa Marie Fernandez tiered dress I’ve been making eyes at for a few weeks?  This nails the look for under a third of the price.

Also, I know y’all have been sitting on pins and needles waiting to hear about how we got the pet smell out of our carpet, and this is the only thing that worked (and we’d tried a bunch of remedies, including borrowing a steam cleaner from a friend!)!  It smelled super strong and chemical-ly after application, but it’s completely removed the pee smell.  Win!

And another also — I love this little striped shirtdress!!!  The color!  The width of the stripes!  Best of all — the price!

P.S.  In case you’re traveling with a little one this summer, how to get a great blowout at home, and how to fall asleep when you can’t.

  1. I was unfamiliar with Goat until I saw/heard about HRH MM’s dress — and this post has been a helpful crash course! Love that bead-hem minidress you selected above, and the tip about The Outnet (love that site!) xo
