When That Dress You've Wanted Goes on Sale!

October 8, 2013

Hi dolls!

Happy OCTOBER! Wow! Can't believe September is already gone! So a few weeks ago, one of my best friends since elementary school got married and I was SO honored to be a bridesmaid in her wedding. The Friday night before was the rehearsal dinner, and in typical girl fashion, I decided that I just didn't have ANYTHING in my closet to wear. So what does that mean? Short trip to the mall...with 2 hours to spare..to find a dress to wear for the rehearsal dinner that night! Challenging? Yes. Mission Accomplished? YES! 

When I went shopping back in May for a beach trip I was going on, I spotted this cute dress at Dillard's but decided to get another dress instead. I loved the color, the neckline and the layering in the dress however and never forgot this gem! Well it's that time of year when all the summer dresses are on sale, and I found the exact dress I had my eyes on months ago, in my size & just KNEW it would be perfect for the rehearsal dinner! The best part was when people told me they liked my dress I would say, "Thanks! I just got it 2 hours before this at Dillard's and it was on sale!" Guess the old saying, "good things come to those who wait," is true even when it comes to shopping!!! Here's how my look turned out....










Dress: B. Darlin at Dillard's (similar HERE)
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
Earrings: Target

Don't you just love it when those things you've been eyeing go on sale!? 

Thanks for reading!

XOXO
Ashley

  5. Seeing an item that you wanted go on sale is THE best feeling in the world, unless of course you gave in and bought it at full price and THEN it goes on sale (hate it when that happens). This dress is really pretty. You styled it perfectly. Love the lipstick as well.

    1. Aw thank you so very much!!! :) It's a Marc Jacobs lip color I'm obsessed with. And I agree, it's the worst when you buy a dress for full-priced and then it goes on sale later! I got lucky with this one! Thanks for your comment girl! XOXO
