Something Different

I was recently browsing for deals at my favorite boutique, Mint by Sandpiper, when I came across this sweet long-sleeved dress. I loved the color, but wasn't sure about the silhouette (shift) or the size (two).

A shift dress doesn't have much shape to it, so this silhouette doesn't usually look good on me. The dress was also only available in a size two, a size smaller than I usually wear, so I didn't think it would even fit me.

Then I saw the price.

The store was getting rid of a lot of old inventory, so the dress was CHEAP. After hearing just how much the dress would cost, I decided to take a chance and try it on. I'm so glad I did, because the dress actually fit me!

Original Price: $360

Price I Paid: $30

If you're getting a deal as good as this one, it never hurts to take a risk, whether on a size, style, etc. Things look so different on a person versus a hanger, too.

I also love an opportunity to wear these fun Jimmy Choose. I always get so many compliments on them.
