Rambling over Coffee: I just ordered 5 similar dresses on Amazon hoping one will be perfect!


I have an event coming up in 2 weeks and I'm not a shopper, but I need a dress for it.  A casual, not dressy dress.  But a dress.

But again... I'm not a shopper.  I get most of my clothes at the same time I'm buying my groceries at Sam's Club!  LOL.  The only two things I get elsewhere are my jeans from American Eagle and my shoes from Rack Room (because I get buy 1, get one half off).

I went online and realized a regular, average dress on any number of sites was going to cost me about $60+  Meh.  And I really don't want to go have to try on clothes in a real store.  So... off to Amazon.

I found a bunch of dresses I liked - some of them listed by no less than 20 different sellers - for prices that ranged from $12 up to $55 for the SAME EXACT DRESS.  So I took my time, researched, read reviews, blah blah.... and came up with 5 dresses.   Here are two of them... the others are similar.


Because they are Chinese made/sold through Amazon, you know it's hit or miss.
They run small (up to 3 sizes too small) are often made of weird fabric, or you'll get a completely different fabric and pattern than what the photos show.  You just never know what you're going to get - (life is like a box of chocolates....  that went through my head when I typed that last sentence).

The red dress shown was listed SO many times by SO many sellers and ranged over $50 in pricing but I managed to find all FIVE DRESSES FOR $12.99 and $13.99 EACH!  YAY!  So you know what I did, right?

Ordered all 5.

I got all five dresses for what would be the price of one elsewhere.  And I really, really like all five that I ordered.

Out of 5, at least 1 has to fit, right?  I'm guess that at least 2 or 3 will work well and the others will either work as well OR, I do have 2 daughters to pass some along to. 

These are going to be perfect for vacation at the beach this summer too.

I'll update to let you know (if anyone cares) LOL.

And now, my husband is due home, and I've got to figure out what to throw together for dinner.  Have a great night everyone!
