Best Dresses on a Budget: Reader Advice

Since spring, dresses have been back with a white hot vengeance, which we’re still totally happy about. But here’s the hitch—dresses are the kind of item that, since you can’t mix and match to change it up too much, are somewhat limited in terms of cost-effectiveness. This doesn’t mean don’t buy ‘em—it just means shop with care (always good advice anyway). We have our favorite sources—, for example, always has a nice selection of $99 and under dresses for party situations, and believe it or not, Chadwick’s seems to be stepping up its dress game, with more-stylish-than-expected dresses for prices we can live with (like this divine shawl-collar wrap dress, on sale for $49.99). But, TBF readers, where do you pick up fab dresses for less? Do you have favorite sources for specialty size dresses (petite, plus size)? Give us the scoop . . .

    I am a huge fan of this store called Susie’s Deals!
    They carry clothes for everyone, men’s, women’s, and kids too. I always know that I can walk in to one of their stores a come out with a big bag of really cute stylish stuff for $25! Everything in the store is sold for $5.99 or less and you can even find things that are 2 for $5.99!
    I have bought some really nice name brand things at this store and given them to friends and family for Christmas. People have NO idea that these nice items only cost me $5.99 each .. It’s Awesome!
    I urge you to check them out, because you only have one store on your site that carries clothing and this store appeals to everyone! And they have a web site where you can also shop online or snatch an e-coupon to use at the store, and if you spend $50 the shipping is FREE which is a definite plus!
    They have a website and stores in Utah, Nevada, and California.

    Twice now, I’ve found nice evening dresses at Mandee. If you fit into junior sizes, it’s definitely worth checking out.
