Dress challenge, day 10

Standard


So…have you ever purchased a dress and then thought 'why did I buy that?'

That's how I felt about this number from Target … until I wore it.

It's like a little slice of heaven. Soft. Comfortable.

Best of all : clearance-priced at $9.

I paired it with a silver necklace that came with a shirt (purchased on clearance) and a cardigan from Maurice's. Cardigan was marked down to $24.

Shoes are from Gordmans, $9.

Multiple compliments today. 😀

The Dress Challenge

Standard

A co-worker and I decided we would wear a dress every day until we run out of dresses/skirts.

The only exceptions : Wednesday's, when we print and the week of the county fair.

I began the challenge with this cute number from Cato. White dress with coral and cornflower accents and ruffles under the arms. Original price: $34. My price on clearance: $14.

Paired with cute sandals from Gordmans. $9.

Print day

Standard


No print on my clothing. We print our weeklies on Wednesday and let’s just say that white isn’t a good color in the print shop. Plus, it’s a fairly casual day as we gear up for the next week

So, I picked a pair of gray skinny jeans from Dia & Company. I recently signed up for the service and received the first shipment of clothing. This was the only item I kept. Granted, these were pricey – $65 – and after the $20 styling fee was deducted I paid $45. I don’t mind – this time – because they are comfy and fit great. Normally I wouldn’t dream of paying that much for a pair of jeans.

The top is from Gordman’s, who filed or bankruptcy so I will have to head there to find a bunch of bargains. Price: $11.99.

Plaid and lace

Standard


I would definitely wear this outfit to work. Saturday, though, I wore it to my stepdaughter’s bridal shower. 

The mauve lace shirt is sleeveless and has a bit of empire waist feel to it, which I didn’t expect…but I like. Found this gem on the clearance rack at Maurice’s for $9.99. I’ll take it. Paired with a black cami underneath. Gordmans for $6.99. 

The plaid shirt runs small through the chest area. My only complaint. It matches the lace shirt. Originally sold for $38.99 at Maurice’s and was in sale for $30. The day I bought it, the store had a sale offering 25 percent off. Final price: $22.50. 

The only item I paid full price for is the jeans, which I picked up at Cato for $27.99. 

I’m pretty happy with the total package and how it looks. Blushing. 

Black and White Plaid

Standard


When I was in high school, plaid prints were all the rage. Now, they’re back in so many more choices. 

For instance, this plaid dress was a steal at $14.99 at Gordmans. Had a nice little coupon that knocked if $10. 

The gray leggings were in clearance at Cato. Price: $6.99. 

For a pop of color, I chose burgundy boots from Payless. $24.99.
