Sundress season is almost upon us, so for this week’s Fabulous Find, we picked a cute and versatile pastel dress that’s perfect for spring. This Target frock is an on-trend mint green hue, but the subtle white pattern adds some retro flair. We can see this dress being worn now with a coat and tights, then worn once the weather warms up with sandals and sunglasses.
The best part? You can snag it for a mere $25! Scroll down to check out the dress, as well as three cute ways to wear it this spring:

If you like this cheap and chic dress, then you’re going to love the outfits we put together for inspiration. Read on to find out three stylish ways to wear this week’s Fabulous Find:
This dress has an ultra-girly vibe, so play it down a bit by pairing it with chic menswear-inspired pieces. Start by layering on a lightweight trench and slip on a pair of oxfords. Add a green belt – it can be worn either around the waist of the dress or over the trench coat. For the finishing touch, accessorize with a delicate initial necklace.
Create a casual look by wearing our Fab Find with a low-key denim jacket and cut-out flats. Add a pop of color with a coral cross-body bag, and grab a striped scarf. A pair of intricate earrings add interest and complete the ensemble.
For a sweet and trendy springtime outfit, pair the dress with some gladiator-style sandals. Carry a cute floral print bag and accessorize with several vintage-look bracelets. Lastly, paint your nails a pretty pale pink shade.

Every week, I scour the web to find inspiring outfits on your favorite celebs and help you recreate their looks! This week, all the stylish stars were spotted about town in Paris (presumably for Paris Fashion Week), including Rihanna, Margot Robbie, and Olivia Palermo, who all looked très chic in unique ways. Read on to see how you can get their looks for yourself.
Look 1: Rihanna’s Color Block Cool

It’s no secret that Rihanna is the queen of cool, and her threads while out and about in Paris were a testament to that. RiRi rocked a cropped, geometric color-blocked sweater over a longer white t-shirt with some straight leg jeans rolled at the ankle to show off her patent brogue shoes. Her look is casual and comfy yet makes a bold statement, thanks to her colorful sweater and androgynous loafers.

Cropped sweaters have been a big trend this winter, and Rihanna shows us how to wear one to create a casual daytime look. Pairing a longer t-shirt underneath the cropped sweater looks chic and doesn’t reveal too much skin, which makes this ensemble ideal for campus.
This color-blocked sweater makes a bold statement like RiRi’s, and is toned down with a slouchy, long white tee and some cuffed straight leg jeans. Ankle-length jeans draw more attention to your footwear, which is why a pair of black patent brogues really stand out with this outfit. We accessorized this getup with a mod polka dot bag, which creates a mixed print look that still matches the color scheme of the outfit.
Look 2: Margot Robbie’s Bold Babydoll

Actress Margot Robbie took on Paris – as a brunette! – in a cute printed babydoll dress. Margot wore a standout navy pea coat with large brass buttons and a printed trim. She completed her look with sheer tights, ankle booties, a brown cross-body satchel, and dark sunglasses. Margot’s outfit is feminine, and its darker color palette keeps things looking cool and on-trend.

Choose a flirty printed babydoll dress that has darker hues to mimic Margot’s frock. Make it really stand out by wearing a unique pea coat, like this one, which features embellished brass buttons similar to Margot’s. It has contrasting stripes on the cuffs, which resembles the trim on her coat. Sheer black tights and black ankle booties are perfect for this still-chilly season. Complete the outfit with a structured brown cross-body bag and cat-eye sunglasses.
Look 3: Olivia Palermo’s Chic Cold Weather Look

Fashion Week wouldn’t feel right without the presence of the infinitely chic Olivia Palermo. Olivia kept warm on the Parisian streets looking polished and put-together in a long gray and navy jacket with a moto lapel, a black turtleneck, skintight skinny jeans, and black over-the-knee boots. She accessorized with wayfarer sunglasses and handbag with printed sides. While Olivia’s look is super sleek, her jeans give it a more relaxed, casual feel that makes it great for everyday wear.
Outfit Inspired by Olivia
Transform a pair of casual and comfortable jeggings with black suede over-the-knee boots and a classic black turtleneck. To really keep warm, add on a statement coat – this long gray coat features a waterfall drape front, which, like Olivia’s lapel, is eye-catching. A cool pair of sunglasses keeps things edgy and modern. I really love these brown speckle wayfarer sunglasses since they complement the contrast print tote bag.

If you’re anything like me, you probably haven’t set foot in a Claire’s since eighth grade, but you may want to once you hear this: Katy Perry is collaborating with the accessories retailer.
Katy signed a two-year deal with Claire’s to create a collection, called Katy Perry Prism, that will be available globally in more than 3,000 stores. According to WWD, the line will include limited-edition and seasonal items, as well as products inspired by Katy’s lyrics and song titles.
Jim Fielding, chief executive officer of Claire’s, spoke to WWD about collaborating with Katy:
“Katy is designing a line of jewelry and accessories that she wanted to make for her fans. The overlap between her fans and the Claire’s customer is a great overlap. Katy is a very smart businesswoman and a great performer. She knows her brand very well. She has a definite aesthetic and point of view.”
Katy Perry Prism will launch in Claire’s stores starting this May, in order to coincide with the start of the singer’s upcoming world tour.

Everyone knows that you’re supposed to wear green for St. Patrick’s Day (or risk getting pinched), but what about the other 364 days of the year? There are so many legends and folktales out there surrounding different objects and symbols that represent luck that it’s almost not fair to leave them out.
If you’re hoping to turn the odds in your favor or if you’d like some inspiration on how to incorporate certain signature items into your wardrobe, then check out the quiz below to find the lucky charm that’s perfect for you.
The results to the quiz are down below (if you haven’t taken it yet, don’t look!). I’ve created an outfit that nonchalantly incorporates each lucky charm. Enjoy!
Mostly A’s: Lucky Number
This sporty look is such an easy and cute way to carry your lucky number with you. Paired with Vans and a beanie, you’ll look cool and collected. Other ways to sport your favorite lucky number? If the number is relatively low, you can accessorize with that many bangles, or you could purchase earrings with your signature number on them.
Mostly B’s: Horseshoe
A subtle yet lovely charm necklace with a horseshoe is a sophisticated and understated way to spruce up any outfit. Because you like to stay chic and fashion-forward, you know that a timeless shift dress will never go out of style. Trendy wide strap sandals are ideal for spring, while the salmon-colored bag adds a contrasting pop of color to the look.
Mostly C’s: Four Leaf Clover
Charm bracelets are a great way to wear reminders of things that are meaningful to you. This ensemble is more bohemian-inspired, with the chevron kimono stealing the show. Since the kimono is so bold, pair it with some low-key shorts and a gray tank top. The care-free look is finished with some festival-styled booties.
Mostly D’s: Barnstar
The star-print sweater is the main focus of this outfit, and the subtle contrast between gray and white creates a soft and cozy vibe. I chose boyfriend jeans for the ultimate relaxed fit, but when coupled with pointed-toe flats, the resulting look is chic and sophisticated. This outfit would be great for spending a quiet day with family or at home.
