The Fashion Magpie Spring Dress 3

Spring Chicken.

OK, so I recently talked about all the pretty things on my spring shopping list, but I omitted the entire dresses-for-special-occasions category.  I have a wedding at the end of April; Easter; a birthday gathering for my sister and her husband; and another wedding in June, and I’m pretty much hunting around for spring dresses like a pig looking for truffles at this point.  (Hm, weird analogy.)  Don’t these street style looks make you want to get dolled up for a spring event?!

Yes, yes, yes, and more yes.

+One of my very favorite styles I’ve come across is this lace stunner from Alexis ($595).  Holy swoonfest.

The Fashion Magpie Alexis Lace Dress

+This flounce-y style from Rhode Resort ($365) is also stunning.

The Fashion Magpie Rhode Resort Dress

+Of course, can’t do a pretty dress round-up without a Self-Portrait, and this asymmetrical eyelet beauty would stop traffic ($510).  And, P.S., if you snag this by tomorrow at midnight, you can get it for 20% off with code GOBIG17.  (More Shopbop obsessions to snag with this code here.)

The Fashion Magpie Self Portrait Eyelet Asymmetrical Dress

+Oh, Zimmermann ($695).  And PS, if you sign up for their newsletter, you can get $50 off your first purchase.  Just sayin.  (More sizes here.)

+Love this tiered, scalloped dress in the prettiest shell pink color (on sale for $159).

+JOA off-the-shoulder striped dress ($98).  Very similar to the pretty J.Crew frock I’ve already obsessed over (scroll down to “Show Me Your Stripes”).

+This yellow dress looks JUST like a Self-Portrait, but costs far less ($228).  So gorgeous.

+The prettiest floral maxi — can’t get over that robin’s egg blue color ($238)!

+This J. Crew asymmetrical ruffle dress ($168) is the perfect canvas to dress up with statement heels or statement earrings.  Love it in the pale pink.

+OTS, floral, and very Zimmermann-esque ($210).  Get it for 15% off with code GOBIG17.

+Free People floral maxi ($168)

+I’m such a sucker for white eyelet ($148).

PS — Statement earrings would make a great companion piece for these looks.

PPS — Almost all of these would pair excellently with a straw basket bag.

  1. That is SO funny you posted about this. I just called my sister yesterday panicking about a wedding I have at the end of April that is black tie, and I have completely blanked as to what that could (and does) mean. I wish I was going to a more casual affair, I love your suggestions above! That third picture from the top is how I would like to look always and forever lol.

    1. I know! She is fashion goalz for reallll. I had the same dilemma since I’m going to a black tie wedding at the end of April. I say reach for something midi-length or longer and in a satin/silk (vs cotton). I am wearing this in a marigold yellow color (now sold out): But, a few other great evening-ready picks I considered:

      +This Reformation dress, OMG:

      +This Flynn Skye romantic beauty:

      +Love the soft floral pattern of this nude/blush stunner:

      +The bows on the shoulders (!!!):

      You can see these all have a similar look + feel. xoxo

    2. You are the best, thank you so so much!! That last one is AMAZING, I might have to give that one a try! And you have officially made me obsessed with Reformation, just an FYI lol, it’s so elegant.

    3. UGH, I love it all! My one reservation with that label is that a lot of their necklines are super plunging/low…I’ve had to return two different styles because they were not the friendliest to those of us with more modest bust-lines! So, just a heads up. They do have a very generous shipping/return policy, though. xxx
