I absolutely LOVE the Virginia Johnson dress you gals posted but it's not in my budget! I love how it's cute & comfortable but a bit modest/conservative too. I definitely want something that hits the knee or just above (max. 2-3 inches above -- I'm 5'4"). Short sleeves or cap sleeves are preferable, but sleeveless would be ok. Scoop neck is nice. Basically that dress, or variations of that dress, but more affordable, under $60 per dress. Ideally it would be casual enough that I could wear it to the beach, but be able to throw on a cardigan for dinner with my grandmother. Thanks! I appreciate any help I can get! Marietta"
