When people ask if influencers really influence…the answer for me is always a resounding YES. I find a lot of the new brands that I love, items I buy, and things I didn’t know I needed all through influencers that I follow. Grace from The Stripe posted this dress the other day. I trust her, and it was only $30, so I bought it. And loved it. And then I bought 4 more! I was actually on the hunt for a patterned shift dress that was just an easy throw on piece, but one that didn’t cost $400! These dresses are the prefect addition to my summer wardrobe, and will pull double duty as cover ups in Florida over the winter. Scroll down to see how I am styling these inexpensive pieces to look anything but cheap!
