I love dresses and am so glad that they are back in style. For a long time it was hard to find a dress as skirts were more popular. My favorite source for inexpensive but stylish dresses is Dress Barn. There’s not one where I live, but I make sure to shop at the one in my mom’s town when I visit her and I also shop at Dress Barn when we go to the beach. Sometimes I strike out at Dress Barn but usually I find at least one dress that I can add to my wardrobe.
I realized yesterday when I wanted to take pictures of myself for this post that I have no full length mirror that isn’t almost 100 years old. Old mirrors aren’t the best for self portraits! If you have a big bathroom with a large mirror over your vanity, I envy you. Or if you have a closet with a large mirror, I envy you for that, too! My mirror problem led to not the best pictures but hopefully you can still see how cuteness of my cheap but chic dresses.
Each dress below was $39.99 and is made of a fabric that folds to next to nothing and doesn’t wrinkle. This is great for days that I go to the gym before work or for when I’m traveling.
Now you can see my mirror dilemma. I started out taking pictures in our bedroom using the mirror on our armoire but it is so old that it made every image distorted or have lines all over the dress area. Our only other full sized mirror is in the guest room upstairs.
The next dress is my newest one, purchased over the weekend at the beach. The cute tie at the bottom was what attracted me to it. I’ve got wedges on with it here but I’ll most likely wear it this summer with flip-flops.
I’m a lazy shopper. I don’t go often, so when I find something cute for cheap, I buy it. Ross is another store where I’ve found some great bargains. We have TJ Maxx here but I haven’t found anything there in a long time.
Shoes are what I need to work on finding this summer. I like cute shoes but I stand on concrete for seven hours per day and most of the shoes that I currently own just aren’t working.
What is your source for cute but cheap apparel? If you have any comfortable shoe suggestions, please share! I like Danskos but they aren’t exactly the cutest shoes in the world.
I’m sharing at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday.
