Lisa commented on this post: "I love this dress! I love the flattering shape, wrap, and color. So you know what question is coming next...Can you offer any similar styles and colors for maybe $200 or less??? Thanks! - Lisa"
Hey Lisa! Janetor here, and I'm the one who originally found & posted the dress, so I felt it was only right that I give this one the ol' college try. While the silhouette was fairly easy to duplicate, the print was not. Damn you, Halston! So, I focused on similar watercolor/floral/brushstroke type prints and solids in the same teal/navy/purple/green color palette. Hope you like one of these!
