love me a good bargain...


i am always looking for a good deal.  call me a bargain hunter.  i never pay full price for an item, well...humm...97.55% of the times anyways.  i am also a mall/target/outlet mall rat and the other day we were at one of the outlet malls in the area and i stumbled across this dress in the clearance section of wet seal.  yes. me..a 40 something mom in wet seal but with 15 and 12 year old daughters, this store along with F21 is where you will find them and me : ).
back to the deal...it was on clearance for OMG....$3.00 dollars!  i didn't really like the style of the dress, it looked a little blah and when i tried it on it wasn't very flattering at all.  but because i really, really loved the pattern and for $3.00 i bought it anyways thinking that i can make this work.  i know i can.
i tried it on with this belt and my girls actually both nodded their head "yes" and with smiles to boot!  i was pleasantly surprised because most of the times i'll try something on and they'll both say "no, mom".
so here's how it looks on the hanger with the belt attached to it.  i think it's super cute, comfy, and summery.
i heart this bargain!  have you found any bargains lately?  if so what was your find?
do tell...

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I'm also a bargain shopper, I never EVER pay full price, I'm always in shock when people purchase full price dresses from Urban Outfitters and then I walk over to the sale rack and find a few different dresses for 9.99 or 19.99. LOVE THE SALE RACK lol

I am so impressed and honestly I thought the dress looked cute without the belt :) What a steal though, seriously. And with cute brown wedges or metallic flats- to die for! You so hip :) Anyway, I wanted to stop by and say "thank you" for actually taking the time to read my blog and leave constructive, and sweet comments. It means a lot to me and I am thankful for you! xo
