Alice and Olivia Floral Maxi Dress
This Alive and Olivia floral maxi dress is another item I have been stalking on the clearance rack. It took my breath away the first time I saw it. The print always seemed to catch my eye. I hesitated unsure if the bold print was too much. I gathered second opinions on Instagram and you all voted for me to get it (thanks for the support ya’ll!) I really could not help myself when the dress dropped to 75% off. I love Alice + Olivia, but the full-priced items can be a bit expensive. That is why I hunt the clearance racks at Bloomingdale’s for Alice and Olivia pieces like this maxi dress
It is nice to have an event in mind when I purchase an item. I haven’t found a specific occasion for this dress yet. Although wearing it on my blog is a very special occasion if you ask me! Because I am so tall (5’9″) It is rare I find a maxi dress that I can actually wear with heels.
Tony and I shot this look as more of an editorial than a regular outfit post. This one was a little out of my comfort zone, but I want to take a more artistic aesthetic and really challenge myself to be more creative with my posts. I hope you all enjoy this one and check out my Instagram to see a special video Tony created just for this shoot!
Thank you for reading.
Shopping Tip: If you are hesitating on purchasing an item, think of at least 3 different ways you can wear it. I’ll be wearing this Alice and Olivia floral maxi dress by itself, layered with a jacket, or a sweater. How would you wear this dress and what do you think of it?

I absolutely loved this dress when i saw Sarah Hyland wearing it on Modern Family- so much so that I totally Googled it to figure out where it came from. Great bargain buy!
I have really grown to love that show. Search Ebay, maybe you can find it in your size too!
