Today's Everyday Fashion: Branching Out

I tend to shop at the same handful of stores, but I'm in the mood to try something new lately. Inspired by my recent Babble post and armed with a 20% off coupon, I placed an order with Piperlime, a store I often browse but don't order from. I am keeping one dress (I'll post it next week), and today's outfits are the items going back.

I love the material and loose fit of this dress but it doesn't fit. This photo is bit deceiving, but it needs to be taken in (especially in the bust) and I don't want to pay for alterations. The skirt and top I had planned to wear together but I think I'd prefer the skirt in black. The cobalt isn't nearly as vibrant in person, and the top is big and boxy when it's untucked. I would keep the top if it was half the price, but it feels like too much of my budget for a polyester top. Check out some of my favorites from Piperlime below (despite these not working out, I'm tempted to place another order!). What brands and websites do you love that I don't usually feature? I'd love some suggestions!
