Over the weekend, I made one of the biggest steals I’ve ever had in my life. I was running errands with my mom, when we made a last minute decision to check out the Dillard’s clearance store as we were passing by. I’ll admit that I’m usually not a fan of these types of places. I get impatient very easily, so racks and racks of disorganized clothes does not sit well with me. I’m the kind of shopper where I do a quick browse of the store I’m in, and if nothing pops out at me, I leave. I’m not sure if this is a good or bad habit (my wallet would argue it’s good), but I’ve been trying to wrangle my impatience.
To kill some time while my mom was looking at shoes, I made my way through the sea of dresses. Unimpressed at first, I slowly started seeing dresses I had been coveting at the regular Dillard’s store. Pretty soon, I had about eight dresses slung over my arm, and I was sifting through dress racks like a madwoman. Dresses that I’ve been wanting for months at half the price? How am I just now discovering this? Luckily I didn’t let my impatience get the best of me, because I happened to find this DKNY gem hidden among some not so cute dresses. I can never resist anything with a ruffled hem. It fit like a glove, but I ended up getting a few other things, so I put the dress back.
After suffering a severe case of regret a few days later, I went back to the store determined to find the dress. I spent an hour scouring the racks where I had previously hit a gold mine a few days earlier. I even asked an employee, who looked at me with pity, as she knew it would be nearly impossible for me to find it. As I was about to call it quits, I went to another part of the store to look at some more dress racks, and shockingly found the dress after only a few minutes! It was fate, and I immediately bolted for the cash register. I’ve finally found the perfect fall dress. When shopping for fall/winter dresses, I look for anything with a sleeve that can be paired with tights or boots.
Since I’m an indecisive person, I came up with a few different ways to style this. I’ve been into silver and black lately, so I put together two different looks utilizing jewelry in both colors. For today’s look, I dressed it up with my go-to ankle strap heels and chunky black beaded jewelry. I’ll share my silver accessories look next week!
