This Dress Plays With Lace and Crochet in the Best Way — And It’s on Major Sale!

Alfani Dress
 Macy's


Macy’s is really spoiling us lately. Every time we think we’ve found a great deal, it ends up being even better. Extra savings are everything to Us, and when we uncover a deal so good our eyes practically pop out of our skulls, we know we just have to share. We think we’re going to need to start seeing an ophthalmologist because it just happened again!

The Alfani Crochet-Trim Illusion Dress is a fan favorite because of its vast versatility, amazing quality, color options and overall beauty. With Macy’s current sale, this dress goes up to 60% off! That’s under $50 for a dress we’ll want to wear everywhere we go!

Shoppers are saying that the online photos “do not do the dress justice,” which is hard for Us to believe considering how beautiful it looks in pictures! Others are calling it “classy” and “fabulously chic.” One shopper pointed out how it “provides nice coverage” without actually making us look all “covered up.” We don’t need to layer on a turtleneck sweater and a shoulder scarf to stay sophisticated! Others also commented on the high quality of the dress’ material and construction, one pointing out how the lace “isn’t easily snagged,” which can be a huge issue with lace and knit pieces in general.

This Macy’s-exclusive piece may have lace, but it’s not a typical lace dress. It has an allover lace mesh overlay, but at the cuffs and hem, it switches to a crochet trim with floral details. We get the best of both fabrics and styles and they flow seamlessly into each other, from scoop neckline down to knee level, where the crocheted flowers hang daintily on our legs.

This dress has an A-line silhouette. While it doesn’t flare out, it’s no bodycon dress that will have us pulling out our Spanx. It has a relaxed fit with plenty of room to move around, which is especially important if we’re wearing this to a springtime wedding (which we should!) or any other party where we might be out on the dance floor.

There is a hidden zipper at the side of the dress, making it easy to slip on and off without ripping any seams or having to dig our fingers into the lace. This means we don’t have to reach around the back either or ask for help! It has three-quarter-length sleeves, which are sheer, switching from lace to crochet flowers a little before the elbow.

This dress is currently available in 10 colors, many of which are vibrant and bold, sure to help us stand out and secure the “best-dressed” title we deserve. Lush Meadow is a gorgeous teal, which complements the floral details with ease. If we want something similar, but a bit brighter, we can also check out Cozumel, which is more on the aqua side of things!

Looking for something more of a straight blue? Check out Blue Crest, a stunning cobalt that looks amazing with other bright colors or metallic accessories. While we’re making a statement, let’s look at Red and Fuchsia too! These shades are bold and proud of it. Flamenco Pink sits up there as well, combining the other two for an entirely different shade.

Another bold shade is Tuscan Gold, a light and bright yellow. If we’re looking for something softer, we can try Dusty Blush, a pretty and romantic pink. If we’re not looking for color, that’s not a problem. This dress is also available in Deep Black as well as Bright White. The white is selling out quickly, though!

We’ll be wearing this dress to every special occasion we’re invited to. If we have no invites, we guess we’ll just have to create our own special occasion! Even if it’s just running to the grocery store, no one needs to know that we didn’t just come from a fancy party. Don’t be afraid to dress this frock down with a denim jacket and sneakers, either! Have fun with it!
