Covet vs. Catch: Silk Raceback dress

We got a Joie  silk racerback dress last year that we still love as much as the day we bought it. The best part about the dress though? We got it for a cool $30-some dollars at Nordstrom rack. Love when that happens!!

Anyhow, the dress has been so successful that Joie makes a version in season-appropriate colors year round now. The price though? Not nearly as hot as the dress. Therefore we bring you another round of Covet vs. Catch:

Joie Sheila Silk mini-dress, $198

J.Crew Marlie Silk Racerback dress, $128

Dress crushes: Aqua silk printed frocks

Isn’t this little silk sailor dress darling? Makes us think of all the sailor stripes we loved for this season that we blogged about a bit ago. As did Coquette. It’s a total bargain, too.

Aqua striped silk dress, $88

This little number, also by Aqua, is a bit out of our normal outfit attire, but we love it for that exact reason. It’s unexpected and a total picker upper.
