I'm really unsure how I got stuck here. I'm usually fancy-free when it comes to picking up new spring and summer staples (it's kind of my thing), but here I am, trumped by my need-it-now-or-god-help-the-citizens-of-Halifax desire for a white sundress. I don't know exactly when I threw florals, prints and easy shades of summer to the wayside. But screw the trends, I want it in white. Maybe because it's so simple and timeless and will illuminate my golden hue (work in progress). Maybe because it'll match any of my spring and summer footwear selections. Or maybe because I'm just asking to spill something on it.
Not only must it be white, it also must have the fit. I'm not quite sure what fit I'm looking for, but it'll be like Cinderella's shoe when I find it. I want a billow'er, but fitted, cleave-enhancing but demure. Cotton, linen, polyester, lace, bring it all on.
My online voyeurism has brought me these hue-less hotties...

Tough decision, but I'm leaning towards the VS Beach dress, and the Eyelet Woven F21 dress. Both are a steal at under 30 bucks a pop (pre-shipping). Tropical beach, fruity drink, and studly cabana boy not included..
