Gilding the FrillyEaster is coming up and although you might not be Easter egg hunting anymore,  you’re probably hunting for a cute dress to wear. Have no fear! Becky from Gilding the Frilly is here to show you how you can look great for Easter and still have some money to spare for your favorite Easter treats. Be sure to check out her personal style blog about a 20-something girl trying to make it in NYC one outfit at a time!

Easter is less than a month away, and whether you’ll be spending the holiday in church with family or doing an Easter egg hunt with friends, it’s time to welcome back pretty spring colors and floral prints! I remember looking forward to Easter when I was a little girl, because it usually meant a frilly new dress. Not much has changed since then except for the fact that if I want a frilly new dress I’m the one who’s shelling out the cash for it, not the Easter Bunny. Let’s face it; I’m not the only one on a budget these days, right? So, here’s a bit of help finding that perfect Easter dress for under $100!

The retailers who are part of the Shop It To Me family are a great place to start your search. My Salemail from Friday included a candy-colored floral print Ellen Tracy dress from for $59.99. (Even better? Shop It To Me readers get free shipping on the site!) It’s demure enough for a family function with its lady-like silhouette, but the ruffle detailing adds a bit of fun.

Ellen Tracy Dress has a variety of dresses under $100 that would be prefect for Easter, including this London Times solid green number (at a reasonable $44.99) for those who aren’t fans of an all-over print.

Ann Taylor LOFT’s dress section offers dresses in more subdued colors, and an array of more casual options, all of which are $100!

Utilize the items already in your closet to personalize these dresses to fit your style. Add a cardigan and some statement jewelry, or finally wear those sandals you bought on clearance that you didn’t get a chance to wear before winter!
