Things are starting to look up for 2012 for this particular Style Darling. Why, you ask? Last night, I was invited to attend a New Year’s Eve celebration, which prompted a fury of online dress scouring since I realized that all of my current dresses hanging in my closet were bought mostly for work, since I do like to look polished & trendy at my 40/hr a week job. I knew there were a few go-to stores to check out, but I was trapped in my cubicle, with only the guidance of the computer in fron of me. I clicked through a flurry of websites, including New York & Company, JC Penney, White House Black Market, H&M, Forever 21, & Dress Barn. Keeping in mind that I’m supposed to be on a budget since my departure for Italy is in less than two weeks, I had to find a great sale price for a lovely dress to ring in the new year.
I immediately fell in love with the foil printed laser cut sheath dress ($35.00) @Dress Barn, which was originally $69.99. What’s even better is that I have a good rapport with the employees at the local Dress Barn, which I ran to during my lunch hour. The ladies hooked me up with some black opaque tights since I didn’t want to venture out with bare legs on the chilly December evening. Also, I was given a special rewards card to earn points for discounts on future purchases, as well as a great discount on the already reduced merchandise.
Since the festivities will include seeing a rock band perform, I’m thinking that I ought to dress down the sparkly number with a cute jacket or cardigan & some fierce gladiator-inspired shoes. Also, I’m thinking about adding a belt across the middle of the dress, just to help cinch in my waist. Once I put my whole look together, I’ll try to post some pictures since I’m so exicted that I found such an amazing deal on such a flirty dress!
What are your plans for this Saturday night? What are you going to wear? Have a happy & safe New Year’s! Happy Styling!
