A Summer of Dresses: Jordan*

Have you been to see my new post over at The Shoe Digest yet?? SO EXCITING. :)

My lovely friend Jordan actually emailed me her post over a week ago, but in the haze of my death cold I somehow overlooked it.

*bows head in shame*

In any case, please take a moment and check out Jordan’s amazing dress–I’m seriously coveting it. I need a dress like this! New thrifting challenge? I think YES.


Greetings to all you Shop Girl readers!

My name is Jordan and I am totally thrilled to be appearing on Shop Girl’s blog this week with a totally amazing dress that I simply adore! Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I have been married for just under 5 years and have lived in 3 provinces and 5 cities during that time (we did a lot of cross country driving!). I am the mother of a very busy 1 year old boy and I’m expecting another baby boy this October. I work as a dance teacher and very passionate about all of the performing arts, and these days you can find me blogging at The Diary of a Dancer and a Frog Prince. While I’m originally from Ontario (Shop girl and I were friends in our single days!) I currently reside in Calgary Alberta.

And now onto my wonderful dress.

I saw this dress hanging on a rack in Winners 2 years ago and knew that I simply had to have it the moment I laid eyes on it! Yes, it was love at first sight. Normally I don’t pay full price for items…I tend to be a bargain hunter, but I was willing to pay the $30 price tag for this particular dress because I just LOVED it!  Why do I love this dress so much you ask? Here are my reasons:

1) It’s long- and who doesn’t love a long breezy summer dress?!
2) You can wear it with flats or heels- while I prefer the look with flats I have worn it with heels and I think it still looks great.
3) It has a plethora of gorgeous colours making it super summery!
4) I bought this dress when I was completely not pregnant but it magically still fit me when I was 36 weeks pregnant last summer!
5) You can accessorize with a variety of coloured tops underneath to make it a little more modest and also a variety of jewellery styles.
6) It’s super versatile. You can wear it to anything from a walk in the park, to church, to a summer dinner party.

What more could I ask for in a dress? I dare say… nothing!



The Project

If you’re interested in being featured with your favorite dress, here’s what you need to do:

1) Take a photo of you in the dress.

2) Write a brief blurb / post that includes the following:
–Introduce yourself
–Why do you love THIS dress?
–Where did you get it?
–How do you accessorize it?
–Where do you wear it?

3) Email it to me at

…and that’s it! Easy as pie. I hope to hear from you soon!!
