My Magic Rebecca Taylor Dress

I'm sure you recognize my favorite Rebecca Taylor Kiku print dress from last year (and the year before LOL) but what you don't know about it is that it's magic. When I purchased the dress I was 40 lbs. lighter (as seen on me here) and at the time I was surprised I could fit into a sample size 2. And somehow it still miraculously fits. OK it's a little snug across the chest but it's still wearable and pretty flattering. For summer I'm all about easy summer dresses - and now that it's finally warm around here, be prepared to see a parade of new dresses. I finally caved and picked up a few so I'd have a few options that fit my new size :)

From head to toe:
  • Sunglasses: Dolce & Gabbana, Century 21, $15
  • Dress: Rebecca Taylor, sample sale, $50 (RV $550)
  • Bag: Street Level fringe bag, Nordstrom Rack (clear the Rack find!) $7.50, RV $50
  • Bracelet: Dannijo Lacey cuff, sample sale, $25 (RV approx. $350)
  • Heels: Loeffler Randall x Suno, sample sale, $75

You can shop my style here:

Thank you Belle for this round of pics :)

In addition to my sample sale picks from last week, Jonathan Simkhai is the only one that catches my eye. J. Crew and MCM are on right now but J. Crew tends to have tons of randomness and MCM isn't cheap.

Kids are officially done with school so I'm in full-time mommy mode. We're still working out summer plans (I'm a last minute kinda gal) but I have wanderlust in my veins so let's see where that takes us :)




  1. Still love this dress! Looking forward to seeing your new ones too!

    1. Thanks Shira! One shopping trip yielded 3 new dresses - it was a miracle!

  2. This is truly a gorgeous dress! I am actually wearing a dress today that I have had for 3 years and posted and blogged about and guess what ?? I'm having pictures taken AGAIN in it ! Except it's supposed to rain so idk. But seriously I love this dress so much and you have styled it gorgeously with the amazing bag and shoes !

    1. Thanks - I have a lot of stuff but there isn't much that I love as much as the day it came home with me. This dress is standing the test of time :)

  3. Awwww, agree that this dress is magic now that u mentioned how it fits u though u gained weight! I hope all my dresses are like yours so I can eat and gain weight without worrying about updating my closet *LOL*

    1. After having three kids I've had to update everything LOL. My feet never shrunk so I had to rebuild my shoe closet a few years back. I love my new shoes but my old collection was pretty amazing too.

  4. This Rebecca Taylor dress is beautiful! Love the print and the cut of the dress! So cool it still fits! My weight goes up and down all the time so I love having pieces that are a little flexible so to speak hahaha
    Can't believe how much it costed and those D&G sunnies for $15? OMG! Such a steal!
    You look amazing as usual gorgeous lady!

    1. Thanks! Back in the day Century had amazing end of season sales and I would hoard designer sunnies for less than $20. Too bad that ship has sailed...

  5. Literally such a cute dress. Loving the print. You look amazing and I'm so glad that you can wear it. You always get the best steals. Thanks for sharing the magic of this dress. Wear that dress all year long girl!


  6. Hey Beautiful:)
    Hows you?
    This Rebecca Taylor Dress is one of my Favorite ever:)
    The Print the Shade , everything is so Gorgeous:)
    And those Heels are Killer:)
    Loved so much:)
    You always find the Best Deals:) ehhhe
    Love Kisses
    Open Kloset By Karina
    Happy Day for you

  7. What a gorgeous dress! So what you are saying is, it's pretty much sisterhood of the traveling pants material? Do you have an extra?! I don't think I have one thing in my wardrobe that truly works for my weight fluctuations! I NEED THAT MAGICAL DRESS! Love your shoes and your gorgeous smile! As always, I am blown away by your finds!

    1. Hahahaha this would make a great traveling dress. Not sure I could let it go thou LOL

  8. First of all, girl, how gorgeous these shoes are! Wow! Just love them so much. And this Rebecca Taylor dress is so feminine and subtle. You just can't go wrong with the floral classy dress, right?
    Love your style so much, and these photos are so great!

    Cheers, Eliza |

  9. I'm hoping that when I move, there are more sample sales because where I'm at now, there's NONE :( I am always envious of the deals you find. That dress and those heels are the perfect combo!

    1. They typically are only in NY and LA (though I've heard of some in San Fran) but I wouldn't be shocked in they had some in Texas. If I hear anything...

  10. Okay, first - you still look fly in that dress! Love it! And I agree about easy dresses for summer...especially when running out the door with the kids in the morning. I need the easiest thing possible! And I am also a last minute planner. Still looking for a camp! Ha! xo, Jessica

    1. Thanks Jessica! I've always loved dresses - way less complicated than separates!
