Happy post-Oscars Monday! Did you guys watch last night? Sadly, I only made it through the first hour and then promptly passed out. But it was fun to see all of the beautiful dresses on the red carpet, and a few of the wins My favorite looks were a goddess-like Chissy Tiegen, a sexy glam Taraji P. Henson (so old Hollywood!), and Jessica Biel with Justin Timberlake being the cutest couple ever. I also loved seeing Karlie Kloss wearing a blue ribbon in support of the ACLU.
In other dress news, let’s talk about wrap dresses, shall we? I’ve always loved the silhouette of a well-made wrap dress, so when my friend Alex, the founder of Persifor, gave me this one, I was pretty stoked. I’ve been a big fan of her dresses for a long time (as seen here and here), but the wrap design is a new addition to her collection.
Persifor is giving you guys 20% off of any purchase this week with the code LEMONSTRIPES. Happy shopping!
I also rounded up a bunch of great dresses at three different price points, plus a few maternity-friendly dresses for you guys. After last week’s impromptu survey, I’ve decided to keep my dedicated maternity posts to once a week, but will try to sneak in tips for you expecting mamas like I did below. For those of you not interested, you can skip right over it! Win/win, right?
Today also marks day one of Shopbop’s massive sale. Now through 3/5, take 15% off your purchase of $200 or more, 20% off your purchase of $500 or more, or 25% off of your purchase of $800 or more with code GOBIG17. They have a great wrap dress selection and so much more!

Love this dress – the blue is so pretty on you.
This dress suits you so well Julia but the price tag is a bit hefty in my opinion. Thanks for posting alternative cheaper versions. Wrap dress are super confortable when you are pregnant and very flattering too. Julie xx
I love this dress! PS: I died at JT and Jessica…I’ve had the biggest crush on him since I was 7 (eek!) so anything that involves him makes me want to cry;)
