As dress-wearing humans, we all have our white whale — yes, I'm talking about that one dress does it all. Every important meeting, every party, every brunch, it makes us feel like the best dang version of ourselves. It's basically the thread-and-fabric incarnation of this gif:
Well, for a heckin' ton of Amazon reviewers, this pencil dress ($29.99) is IT. It's stretchy, sexy yet work-appropriate, and honestly looks like it could be by a much pricier designer label.
But really, it's the over 2,800 positive reviews that say it all — and of those, a whopping 2,200 are FIVE STAR ratings. And don't even get me started on the review photos — so many folks left pictures of themselves looking gorgeous, it was VERY difficult for me to pick just a few to show you in this post.
Like, you're telling me that neither of these dresses are by a fancy designer??!!?!
Thank you to these reviewers for demonstrating how you can style this dress for the office or for a big event and slay either way.
When I see so many different people all feeling beautiful in one dress, it gets me emotional, okay!!!
It's a good thing this dress is affordable, because honestly you may also need to invest in a camera crew to follow you around at all times while you're wearing it. You are SO ready for your close-up.
Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in sizes S-3X and in 17 colors).
You, knowing how fabulous you look when you slip into this dress:
