Daisy Afternoon Dress in Plaid: Dress Review

   I picked up this cute Daisy Afternoon Dress in Plaid by Sunny Girl at the last ModCloth sale.  I know it doesn't help much to do a review of a sold out dress, but sometimes this style comes back around in a different pattern or turns up on a resale site, so it doesn't hurt to have a review out there to reference before buying.
    I used to think that Sunny Girl dresses were pretty short.  Since I've started shopping at Larmoni & The Other Sparrows, I'm singing a different tune.  Another thing about Sunny Girl dresses is that they're typically not worth the original retail price.  This is a brand that I've consistently found that I should wait to go on sale before buying.  This particular dress was worth every penny of its $19.99 sale price, but no where near the quality of the $65 price tag it originally had. 
    A bit of a funky plaid with pale blue, navy, warm red, and burgundy, it seems a little more appropriate for summer, but with a dark cardi and tights, I think I can convert it to winter wear. The cloth is a heavy cotton that sort of reminds me of a dish towel.  That doesn't sound appealing, but it's just another reason why it might be great for winter.  Another plus for this dress is that in spite of it's basic quality, it does have pockets and comes with a belt.
    Sunny Girl also has their autumn lookbook available for viewing.  Featuring some lovely coats, jackets, and skirts, all worn by porcelain skin blondes donning faces that seem simultaneously confused and annoyed.   While it's fun to flip through the pages of this latest lookbook, ordering is a bit more complicated since this Aussie based company doesn't do any direct sales.  For now, I'll have to be content to wait for the ModCloth clearance events if I want a Sunny Girl dress.  But, hey, I'm a patient person and I love a challenge.
