One of the only reasons I can maintain a vast and diverse wardrobe is because I only buy clothing, shoes, purses, etc. on sale; I never, ever pay full price.
Although my parents technically bought me this dress as part of my birthday present, I found it on the clearance rack at the Belk Phipps Store -- and it was only $9.99.
Yep, originally $148, we paid only $9.99.
I repeat: $9.99 for a Trina Trina Turk dress! That's pretty unbelievable! I just love the idea of a $10 designer dress.
Dress: Trina Trina Turk Kirei Ruffle Lace Dress (no longer available)
I could not find the dress available for purchase online, but you can find the lower priced Trina Trina Turk line at a variety of leading retailers, including Nordstrom and Belk.
You will notice that the ruffle and sleeve are only on one side of the dress. Although I felt a little lopsided when getting dressed this morning, I like the effect overall, and it's nice to have an LBD (little black dress) that is not only lacy, but has a little "something extra".
Sandals: Coach Maxine Sandals
I'm a newer fan of Coach after getting my first pair of sandals last year. The shoes are comfortable, the styling is classic, the prices are great (on sale, of course), and the heels are generally low.
You can find the Maxine sandals at several stores:
