Splurge or Save: Gingham Ruffle Dress

How was your weekend?  Did you do anything fun that you can share? On Saturday while Matt was studying (I told you he was back in school, right?) I grabbed some lunch and did a little window shopping on a beautiful 78-degree and sunny day.

My first stop is always Madewell.  I saw this gingham dress that was both pretty and cool.  I liked that the deep v-neck and the ruffled shoulders made it pretty but also hip and not too conservative.  Then I continued along my shopping and saw a dress that was very similar at H&M.  It didn’t have the deep V-neck, but it had more fashion-forward sleeves which made it have an immediate cool factor.

It struck me that both had coolness that I liked – a fashion-y ruffled sleeve in a classic pattern.  The difference was the price.

Madewell Gingham Ruffled Dress $98  |  H&M Checked Ruffled Dress $34

One side note – the link to the H&M dress goes to the Canada page.  For whatever reason, I wasn’t able to find it on the US website (although it was in my local store…).  I’ll keep checking back and see if I can update the link asap.

Have a great week out there!
