Hey y'all! Hope you've all had a wonderful summer. Mine is winding down much too quickly. I go back to school next week. I have not done much shopping while out of school, so I went down to Charlotte the other day to do just that. My main impetus for this trip was to check out the new Charlotte Premium Outlets, mainly because there is a Kate Spade outlet! Here are a few pics from my stops:
Wearing: Size 6
I've been slowly acquiring pieces from last year's Kate Spade's apple line. I snagged both this top and this bag on super-sale, and I have the iPhone case. I shrugged off getting the above dress because a) it looked too short and b) it was way out of my price range. Enter Zooey Deschanel wearing it on New Girl and I was all, "Dang you, Zooey! Gotta have it!" When I walked into the KS outlet store the other day and saw it there, I took it as a sign. It fit perfectly in the size 6 and was not too short at all. Unfortunately, it was still a bit out of my price range, even with the discounts. BUT (this is a long story, isn't it?) I found one on ebay, y'all! And I made a "best offer" and the seller accepted! It's the happy solution you were all waiting for! The end.
Wearing: Size 4
I grabbed this on Anthro Day. I've been in love with this dress for a while, so the discount was the perfect push to try it out. I looooove this dress. It has a vintage feel to it, and the neckline is really flattering. I do kind of wish the sleeves were full instead of cap, but it's not a deal breaker for me. I will most likely wear a cardigan with it anyway as the back is a bit revealing (forgot to get a shot of it--sorry!) While the hemline is uneven, I don't think you can really tell once it's on--it just gives the dress a little movement. This is a possibility for a first-day-of-school dress!
Wearing: Size 4
I really didn't give this dress a second glance until I saw it in person. It doesn't look like much online, but I was really drawn to the colors and shape in real life. It is a great little dress--lightweight and comfortable and all that. I did not buy it (even though it is on sale right now for a great price!) because I really wanted that Kate Spade dress.
Wearing: Size 6 in dress, small in shrug
I have already reviewed this dress here but wanted to include it again with this shrug. I'm trying to find a good layer to go over this dress for a nicer event. I don't think this shrug will be it, although I do really like the color combination.
That's all, folks. Tell me what you think of these dresses in the comments!
