Hi + Lo: Borgo De Nor, Zara, and More.

I wrote last week about the high-end label Brock Collection, and how to get the look for less with the line Valencia + Vine’s pieces.  I have also been swooning over the statement dresses from the eclectic, “It” label Borgo De Nor, as seen on the chic pea above, who is wearing this stunning style (shown below).

Hi-Lo 1: Borgo De Nor vs. Zara.

I also managed to track down a couple of styles on sale — check out this, this, and this!  I am *thisclose* to buying one of these beauties on sale.  You can also get the look for less with this $70 steal, shown below!!!

Hi-Lo 2: The Pam Munson Straw Hat vs. Nordie’s Style.

I have been eyeing one of these dramatic frayed-edged straw hats from Pamela Munson (I’m obsessed) for the last few months — how stunning?!  (Also note that the chic pea below is sporting my new earrings — I bought them in the smaller size!)

Hi-Lo 3: The Rhode Resort Ella Dress vs. The Wayf Steal.

I wrote about the Rhode Resort Ella dress a few months back, and I’m still smitten with it.  I ordered one and found that it was a little too voluminous on my frame — I looked like I was drowning in yards of fabric (#smallgirlproblems).  I was therefore delighted to find this $120 Wayf steal — which nails a similar aesthetic with its ruffled hem, but feels a bit more appropriately scaled for me.

Hi-Lo 4: The Alice McCall Jumpsuit vs. the Re-Named.

I will try not to feature this jumpsuit again (sorry not sorry), but how perfect?!  Get the look for less with this under-$100 steal!

Hi-Lo 5: The Lisa Marie Fernandez Ric Rac Dress vs. The Wayf.

I have been lusting after the label LMF for awhile now — and this ric rac trimmed dress (on sale, but still close to $500!) has my eye.  Luckily, this under-$100 Wayf dress enables you to get the look for far less.

P.S.  Both of the ric rac dresses above remind me of these sandals — which just went on sale!  I love these slides, too — and they’re also on sale!

P.P.S. Lots of hi-lo finds here, too.

P.P.P.S.  Have you ever sold a home?


  1. OMG, so I bought the Nordstrom hat and it is sooooo dramatic! I like it, and I don’t mind that I spent $15 on it, but I’m hoping it’s not too extra for picnics in the Public Garden and afternoons by the pool.

    I am intrigued by the Wayf wrap dress — that Rhode Resort dress has been on my mind for a while but I am on the shorter side, so I’m not sure it’d work for me, either! I also love that re:named jumpsuit … curious about the quality but am willing to try it for such a reasonable price (and Amazon Prime shipping … haha!)

    And OMG, that floral Zara dress … so beautiful! I love that you have it and can vouch for the quality — I’ve been looking for a floral birthday dress and this might be the one.

    1. You can totally pull off that hat! Just pour a glass of rose and go on with your bad self 🙂

      The Zara floral is major, and it fits me like a dream. I LOVE the drama of the sleeves!


    2. Haha, thanks for the vote of confidence! Maybe I’ll take it for a spin at the park this weekend 🙂

      Sad I missed out on the Zara dress … I left it to decide overnight and the next morning, it was gone! Le sigh.

    1. Jen! I bought that dress from Zara and can’t believe the quality. I’m obsessed! xo

  2. I want to love that hat but it just reminds me too much of the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz!
