I passed by Old Navy today and decided to pop in since I've been seeing so many ladies post the cutest finds. Sara recently featured this dress on her Instagram feed.

I'm not familiar with Old Navy sizing (see the tags here) but I believe I tried on XS regular in both the black seashell print and 'all your cobalt' blue and white print ikat print. The black seashell print dress ran really small and I couldn't zip it up all the way while the 'all your cobalt' print dress fit but it was cut lower when viewed from the side so I passed. I tried on sizes XS and S regular in the white and navy ferris wheel print dress and I ended up taking home size S regular (as shown above and below). Size XS was a bit tight across my rib cage and I think size S looks more flattering across the bust. I saved this snapchat (username @whatjesswore) video showing a closeup of the fun ferris wheel print. The 'white' color is navy against white as seen here in this closeup of all three patterns. Much to my surprise, the dress was 40% off in store today when I went to checkout.

Updated 5/31: Use the code SUNSHINE for 30% off and get this dress for $18.90 after discounts. Sale ends tonight 5/31.

Quality: I washed this dress in cold water and air dried it and it was a bit wrinkly so I had to steam it out before wearing it. Also I should have carefully inspected the one I bought because it had a defect where the inside lining near the strap wasn't sewn correctly. A one inch hole opened up that my mom had to help me fix. My mom also thought the straps seemed like they were going to pop off so she secured them some more. I forgot why I don't really shop at Old Navy anymore except for their Rockstar super skinny jeans but based on my past experience their clothing never lasts more than a few washes before they look worn out.
