The Maxi dress is on trend for summer. It is comfortable and breezy. Some days, the old pants just won't button. The good old maxi dress means comfy, sudden chic.  The $120.00 price tag on this dress from Guess gave my wallet a scare. But finding this almost identical steal at for $45.00 made my day!

Wearing a bold animal print all over isn’t for everyone. A smaller pop of vibrant print with a purse or accessory brings the same high fashion feel with a bit less drama.  This Jimmy Choo purse is to die for! The $1,000.00 price tag nearly made me die (of shock)! has a zebra tote that nearly matches for a super steal at $27.50.
