Today's Everyday Fashion: Waves & Gowns

I'm so thankful to have my wavy hair back! I cut 4 inches off a month ago and the waves came springing back to life! (To achieve this look, I put this mousse in it and let it air dry.) I've been growing it out to donate since October, but I caved and had to take some off this summer. The weight was making the waves MIA, and I couldn't take another day of heat processing in the heat. My new plan is to make the chop after the wedding this spring, before it gets hot again. I also broke my more than year-long streak of not putting any dye in my hair by adding a few scattered highlights. As for my outfit, this is my second attempt with this floral skirt and I like today's look even better than the first outfit

"I was wondering if you could do a segment on formal dresses under $150? I want my gown to reflect classic sophistication, but I'm having trouble finding anything classy - and floor length - in my price range." - Jacquelyn

Here are some under $150 options for Jacquelyn and anyone looking for a floor length gown for upcoming weddings or events! I'm especially loving the floral and cobalt options!
