There are a lot of new dresses in stock at the moment to keep all your events covered over the silly season but sometimes so many options can make it hard to choose! One thing I always think of when buying a dress is how many wears I'll get out of it. I like buying items that can be worn in a multitude of ways for different occasions, I see those items as investments. I was in my Rouse Hill City Chic store last week and fell in love with the Strapless Denim Rara Dress. I'm going to use it as an example of how to make your City Chic dollar go even further, I've come up with affordable ensembles with items you can find at your local shopping center and City Chic store. Remember, if you don't have one near you, you can always order online!
As Hayley, our resident stylist and trend watcher has said, soft pastels and femininity is big for Spring, as are wedges. This outfit would be perfect for shopping on Saturday or strolling about markets on Sunday, maybe even a first date!

I've kept this look dark, feminine and mysterious. Using lace is an excellent way to add texture to an outfit, just remember to keep it simple for fear of looking just a little too much like your grandma. This ensemble would be great for after work drinks, dinner with a special someone or even a night out dancing.
