Shopping List: LWD

I had a favorite LWD once. I bought it at Forever 21 for less than $30 and I wore it all the time because it was so versatile. It was crochet lace, had cap sleeves, a scoop neck, was cinched at the waist and wasn't too short or too long. I could wear it with flats or dress it up with heels, throw a colored blazer or cardigan over it, decorate it with a statement necklace or big drop earrings - it was perfect for all occasions. And then, one night at the end of last summer, I met a certain NHL player who shall not be named and he spilled red wine all over my dress when he was sitting next to me in a bar. I've never been able to get the stain out and to this day I haven't found a LWD I like as much as that one. So, I decided to do some searching and see if I could find a new LWD for me that isn't too pricey. Which do you think I should choose?

top row, left to right:
Velvet by Graham & Spencer cotton fit & flare dress - $139. {looks like it would be very flattering!}

second row, left to right:

third row, left to right:
Elise Ryan pleated skirt dress - $66 {I really love the pleats on this one!}
Forever21 crochet dress - $20 {I think this is the closest match to my old dress}

bottom row, left to right:
Forever21 floral lace & crochet dress - $28 {not sure if I love the collar...}
