I am a child of the 80’s and 90’s. Growing up you would have found me in overall’s, corduroy dresses and solid colors, but secretly I wanted to dress like the girls in Saved by the Bell and Full House. Think poof sleeved shirts, embellished denim jackets with shoulder pads. You get the point. But there were those fun print tees or overalls that I loved seeing on Stephanie or DJ Tanner (of Full House) and somehow 26 years I get my first fun printed clothing item and it is a fun maxi dress from Lularoe.
After falling in love with the red Nicole dress from yesterdays post I knew I would love this Ana maxi dress. This Ana style dress is quite the statement. While you might argue with me that the print is more tribal or geometric I think of it as 90’s. Besides my history and love for this new “ahem” 90’s print dress I want to praise the vibrant colors through out and point out how good looking it goes with other vibrant colors, noticeably in the accessories. These nice statement bangles (that I won in a giveaway with Tiffany of Bright On a Budget) add character to the dress and are available through the Etsy shop KCK Bangles. Add an old teal purse, turned clutch to this arm candy and wedged sandals and this dress is as good as a party.
Aside from styling the dress it already holds a fun memory. Let me explain. I got it from Lularoe consultant Claire Marie and my husband was baffled by the length of it. He told me I needed to safety pin the bottom hem to keep the dress from getting dirty. I assured him I had some tricks up my sleeve (tying a side of it up, wrapping around to tuck into hair band). He held the dress up to his body. At 6 foot 3 it was too long for him. I laughed at this gesture and dared him to wear it, but to his dismay he said he would probably trip on it and rip it so alas no hubby in a dress. Plus he said he wouldn’t dare wear a dress.
This 90’s print dress will definitely be making a come back on the blog. I can picture styling it with a nice floppy hat and some booties come fall season. What do you think?
How would you style this dress for Fall? Have you tried Lularoe and what do you love?

Hello there, my name is Sheela. Born and bred in Borneo, I’ve been writing since the age of 7 (heavens, that’s four decades now). In the “real world”, I develop brand/communications strategies for a managed security service provider. I know, completely unexpected, and quite the opposite of what you see on sheelagoh.com, huh? When I’m not poring over words, I collect antique books, work out, and cook. I’m also rather infatuated with true crime, be it from a literary perspective or watching it on the telly. Oh and every Friday, I host something near and dear to my heart, the Project Sister Act Link-Up (it advocates the mindset that dressing one’s age is absolute pish posh), and I’d love for you to come join in.
