AJ Wears :: A Stripe Wrap Dress

I love pieces that can go double duty. This wrap dress from Asos fits the bill - they even show a photo of what it looks like as a vest on the website! I crossed my fingers and ordered it, hoping for an awesome new piece in my wardrobe.

Annnnnddddd....I got it. This is such a great work dress, and I can't wait to wear it with a turtleneck or button up underneath in cooler weather. It's gonna be a great layering piece as a vest. Basically, I'm saying I love this and hit a home run in the whole shopping department thing. PRO SHOPPER, people. It's nice to be good at something.

AJ Wears :: A Printed Wrap Dress

When I bought my DVF wrap dress last year, it became an immediate favorite. It's the one thing I can throw on and feel immediately put together for almost any occasion. It turned me into a HUGE wrap fan, so I was excited to find this one on JustFab last week. It's a full wrap with faux leather sash, not a fake wrap top with an elastic waist (it makes a difference, trust me). And at only $40, it's a great alternative to the more expensive DVF wrap.

Plus, some random dude on the street today said, "I like that dress, girl! You got good style!" so it's clearly a winner.

AJ Wears :: A Wrap Dress

I started watching House of DVF last night, and it's awesome. If you love fashion, business, and Diane von Furstenburg, it's a must see! I think it's safe to say that the wrap dress is iconic - I've been dreaming of owning one of hers for years. They're smart, sexy, and seriously flattering. Perfect for work, date night, even cocktail parties with the right accessories. I've owned a couple of imitators, but last month DVF popped up on Gilt and I decided to splurge on a classic black wrap.

I have to say, it was a great decision. It's a jersey knit so it's super comfortable, fits like a glove, and I wouldn't be surprised if I wear it for the rest of my life. I went with the Julian Mini Wrap in hopes that it wouldn't need to be shortened. It hits right above my knees (I'm 5'2") so it's PERFECT. I did order a size up after reading a few reviews.

I don't know what I'm doing in this photo, but it was one of the only photos without my coat on. You're welcome.
