    "Has anyone tried the perks of the Nordy Club? I heard they offer a lot of discounts and perks on special items that are not available on casual buyers. I love the free shipping within the US, saves a lot of money. I once ordered a dress online and I got the wrong size, fortunately, returns are free. So yeah, one of the highly recommended places to buy cocktail dresses online!"

    "Well, if you are going for a retro vintage look, like 80s to 90s, you might wanna consider this one. I once bought an oversized blazer that I used to cover up my above-the-knee length dress just to make it more casual. "

    "Most of the maxi dresses in Forever 21 are way longer beyond my desired length but since I love the cotton material of their dresses, I buy from them and I get them altered. I love their mid-season sale because they really drop prices!"
