So many of my readers here at Dressed for My Day have been asking for affordable fall dresses to wear to weddings, showers and church. So today I’ve teamed up with Kohl’s to share with you three oh so feminine dresses from their Draper James RSVP collection. And I can tell you that not only are these dresses easy on your pocketbook, but they feel comfortable and ladylike. Score!

You’ll stand out in the crowd and pop against the autumn decor in this stunning blue floral wrap midi dress from Draper James RSVP. A wrap dress is almost universally flattering and so easy to wear. Especially if you fluctuate in your weight and size, a midi dress is forgiving and oh so feminine.
The Draper James RSVP floral midi dress runs true to size; I’m wearing my usual medium. And it does feature a small, discreet fastener at the neck for modesty. The dress is made of a rayon/spandex blend and it is machine washable on delicate. And this floral midi dress, as well as all the other dresses I’m sharing, comes in plus sizes.
I chose to complete this dress ensemble with coordinating blue suede block heel pumps. If you plan to wear a dress for several special events, I think it’s fun to go all out and select shoes that match. It’s such a fun way to pull a look together. The Nine West pumps fit true to size and are quite comfortable. They come in other pretty colors, too.
I carried a small crossbody clutch with the pretty blue midi dress. The small crossbody, which comes in six pretty shades, features slots for cards and cash, and it has a magnetic closure. It also has an optional wrist strap that I detached.
Next I selected a green and white clip dot fit and flare dress, also from Draper James RSVP. It features a gently cinched waistband and puff sleeves.
The bodice of this fit and flare dress is lined, but the skirt is not, so I would suggest wearing a slip underneath. The dress fits true to size and also comes in a pretty maroon and pink combination. A fit and flare dress, especially one that features a blousy bodice like this one, is another forgiving and flattering dress option for so many body shapes. The green and white fit and flare dress is also available in plus sizes. The neckline on this dress does not feature a fasten, but I had no problem with it staying together.
I accessorized all three dresses with a single strand of graduated simulated pearls and a double strand simulated pearl bracelet, both by 1928. To balance all of those pearls, I wore simple gold oval hoop earrings.
And yes, I did wear pantyhose with all three of these affordable fall dresses. The very next day I wore a dress without hosiery. I think you can do either and still look stylish and modern. Do what works best for you and makes you feel most comfortable and pretty.
I rounded out my selection of Draper James RSVP frocks with a simple black tie-front fit and flare dress. I think it’s smart for every woman to have a solid black (or navy, if preferred) dress in her closet. This is the dress you can pack in a hurry for a funeral, of course. But you can also enjoy wearing it for so many other occasions.
The black fit and flare dress looks like a wrap dress, but you actually pull it on over your head. The v-neckline does feature a hook and thread closure for modesty. And the fabric belt is removable and could be replaced with another belt if you’d prefer. Of course, I’d recommend clipping off those belt “loops” that you see on my dress.
This fit and flare dress is made in that same rayon/spandex blend as the blue midi dress, and it, too, is machine washable on delicate cycle. The fit and flare dress also comes in a stunning solid red and runs true to size. You’ll find the black and red fit and flare dresses in plus sizes here.
I’m pleased to report that all three of these affordable fall dresses from Draper James RSVP come in sizes XS to XXL, as well as plus sizes. And you’ll find more beautiful, affordable fall dresses from Draper James RSVP here. Of course there’s more to the collection than dresses. I love that Kohl’s carries familiar brands such as Draper James, Nine West and even the beautiful 1928 and Napier jewelry I wore in today’s post.

Blessed for My Day
Today may you know the sweet companionship of the Lord as you walk through this day, whatever it may hold. Be assured that you are not alone and you do not have to carry the burdens of the day by yourself either. You have a Friend who will carry you and work all things together for your good as you go through the good and the bad in this day. Keep your eyes on Him, dear sister. Look to Him for answers, wisdom, provision and strength.
Even if you feel alone and overwhelmed, those feelings are not trustworthy. The truth is that the Lord has offered you His sweet companionship throughout this day. Acknowledge your feelings, feel them for a moment. But them set them aright by speaking the truth to yourself. Write out Psalm 25;14-15 and keep it with you. Speak these reassuring words to yourself as needed throughout the day.
The friendship of the Lord is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant. My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for he will pluck my feet out of the net. ~ Psalm 25:14-15
