Oh the joys of a comfortable shirt dress. I’m pretty sure you can conquer the world in a great dress and this Burberry shirt dress is no exception. This was an absolutely lovely gift I received last year. It’s completely timeless and I feel fortunate to have received it. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves today…I particularly enjoyed when our photo shoot took a turn for the steamy when we came across a vent. They are different from the rest of the photos, but I loved them too much not to share! And yes, you can imagine what the outtakes looked like. About five seconds on that vent and I was over it.
Dress: Burberry (gift)
Shoes: Dolce Vita at Bloomingdale’s outlet ($17 marked down from $100)
Necklace: Nordstrom Rack ($15 marked down from approx $35)
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) While this dress was a gift, I do believe that if you’re going to invest in a designer piece, consider investing in something that will stand the test of time. Many stores such as Nordstrom Rack, Bloomingdales Outlet and Saks Off Fifth have a designer section for designer pieces at discount prices. I generally find that Nordstrom Rack has the best prices on these pieces. Often, there are “designer” racks, but I frequently find designer pieces mixed in with other items. The clearance section at Nordstrom Rack generally has designers such as Tory Burch, DVF, Burberry, and Kate Spade (to name a few!).
2) I wear this dress year round, which means it gets a lot of use. When looking at designer pieces, consider pieces that you can transition through the seasons to really get a bang for your buck. In the summer, I generally wear the dress with nude sandals. In winter, I add orange tights, a long cream sweater, and boots.
Anyone else have a dress they love year round? Or pieces that have sentimental value?
Happy Friday, readers! Thank you, as always, for stopping by!

Those pictures of you going through the fog–Amazing! Love that color too!
Thank you! My girlfriend did a great job capturing the few photos where I wasn’t showing my “I’m melting” face. And yes! The dress has a great orange/red tone in it that I completely love. xoxo
Thanks, girl :)!!
the dress not only looks comfy but looks like a perfect fit 😀 the pictures are great 🙂 and i love the choice of footwear and chains 🙂 beautiful
🙂 thank you!! The orange shoes just happened to be a good match and I love adding pops of color!
i was just checking the prices you’ve written. how do you manage finding such deals. most times i dont even know how to put an outfit together hehe 🙂
Haha! Seriously, I have a rule some days that I solely look in clearance sections when I shop! Then, I ask myself “would I buy this full price?” just to ensure I’m not getting things just because they are good deals! I also go through most sale sections twice because I often am moving quickly and miss things! I think I’ve gotten it down to a science- haha!!
The colors on this dress are perfect, and the last two pictures are so unique and amazing!
Thanks, Cara!! My girlfriend did a good job catching the part where I wasn’t frowning at being all wet from the vent! 🙂 xo!
That dress is such a classic. And I love that it’s not “The” Burberry plaid. Also, thanks for the reminder to hit up Nordstrom Rack! I love that place!
I like that it’s understated too. And yes, I love Nordstrom Rack! There’s one on my walk home and I have to be careful not to go in as much as I want to, haha! xo
I love that your glasses compliment your look. So cute.
Aww, thanks! They don’t always match but I love them so I wear them everyday anyway 🙂 once in a while, they match perfectly!!

Very pretty in plaid and dig the orange accents!
Thanks, girl! I love the orange too!! It’s one of my favorite colors for fall 🙂 xo
