Happy Weekending! Denver was under a rain cloud and grey skies for the past two weeks. Rainy days keep me inside cleaning closets and a little online shopping, followed by a few returns. I find the product reviews helpful and decided to pay it forward for the women who may be considering the white, cotton petite flutter dress on the Loft’s website. I was honest in my review which usually gets in me in trouble.

I decided to have a little fun and exercise my creative writing skills with the following review.

I am too old to wear this decade’s version of the prairie dress. I was around for the 80’s original. Although I love white denim and white button-down shirts, this cotton frock reminds me of the wedding dress Mary Ingalls wore for her marriage to Adam Kendall on Little House on the Prairie. I hope this helps shoppers and I hope the customer support team had a giggle.

QUESTION: Do you read the reviews before buying something online?

Shop Notes: I bought all three this spring. With the chilly, wet weather I have not worn the slide or the navy boat shoe, but i will because they are so comfortable. I love the slip-on shoes from Jack Rogers. Click below for all my favorites this season!

  1. Hi Laura,
    There are 12 episodes in this final season of Ted Lasso. I confess, I love the show, but this season has had a lot of ups and downs. I hope they can end the series on a happy note. 😊
    We’ve been in May gray around here and I’m eager for a little more sunshine, just not the heat that usually accompanies.
    Loved your review of the dress.

    1. Hi Karen, I emailed you back! Yes I just realized the season is not over. Enjoy the weekend!

    I totally read the reviews, especially on Amazon and Loft. Love the description of this summer’s 80s Holly Hobby style. I bought a pink plaid dress at J Crew Factory that looked like a preppy Little House on the Praire dress. Even the saies clerk said she’s sick of the look.
    Amazon for sure, especially after I bought some expensive Brach’s candy corn in March and it arrived a single cement block. Seems like a lot of people did too….and then so did I. Not just negative, but nasty. Shame on the seller!

    1. I think we should all write funny reviews- we need more laughs in our world right now! xo sissy

  3. I have not caught up with Ted Lasso. We wait a few weeks between episodes so that we can binge a few at a time.
