the $12 dress

I have been obsessed with every shade of pink this spring, so when I saw this simple salmon dress it was love at first sight. I scored this comfy cotton number at Forever 21 for $12, and it has quickly become a staple in my wardrobe. You can easily take it from day to night by switching out sneakers and a scarf, for heels and some jewelry.
This dress is a Forever 21 basic that they often carry in different colours for different seasons. I picked up a rusty orange-coloured one last fall, and I recently saw it in grey, black and army green as well.
I love mixing bargain pieces like this with other pieces from my wardrobe. It keeps things interesting without breaking the bank!
