 Banana Republic is good for dresses like that. Ann Taylor is good too (and also great if you live near an outlet like I do!) I also like looking at Dillards especially for Tahari & Antonio Melani dresses.

 White House Black Market. Also H&M– I’ve found numerous dresses there that are great quality. Express as well.

ariellabee :  Does Venus run true to size? I love love love their dresses but haven’t ordered yet since most of the dresses I like there are bodycon and I wasn’t sure about sizing.

bee123456789 :  I loveeee their bodycon dresses too!  I feel like most of them do run true to size, but it really depends on the material.  I think the bodycon ones would have a little stretch to them though.  They have a great sizing chart too, if that helps.  That’s where I’ll be shopping for my honeymoon swimwear/clothes, but now i kinda want some work dresses too LOL.

Banana Republic, Ann Taylor J.Crew, and White House Black Market.

I’d avoid Old Navy because they look cheap and the material doesn’t hold up well.  Invest in some higher quality pieces and you will look more polished and they’ll last longer.

You might also look at Boden; good tailoring, classic but with a bit of pizzazz:

I definitely second (or third) White House Black Market. Also Le Chateau. It’s a Canadian company but their US site ships to the US.
