July is my favorite time to shop. The sales during the beginning half of the month are the best of the year. For example, I recently bought a pair of Christian Loubouin shoes for just $350. That's a steal if you know fashion.
So, it's no surprise that my husband is not happy with me of late. Will men ever understand the allure of a new dress, pair of shoes or handbag? I think not! There is a reason the #sorrynotsorry hashtag was invented! ;)
Today's dress is one I scored in a recent sale on the Alice + Olivia website. I adore everything about this dress, from the flutter sleeves to the polka dot print, so I just had to have it.
I was worried it would not fit -- I'm wearing a size four for reference -- but I think I have lost the extra pounds I put on during our trip to Europe in May, so it's a little snug, but fits fine.
Dress: Alice + Olivia Farah Polka Dot Flutter Sleeve Dress
The dress is no longer on the Alice + Olivia site, but you can find it at a few other retailers, including Neiman Marcus (in blue/white polka dots) and Saks. (If you're wondering where I scored those discounted Louboutins, it was Saks. It's my favorite place to be in July.)
Shoes: Sophia Webster Mika Polka Dot Leather Pumps (no longer available)
A Piece of Nostalgia...
Am I the only one who thinks about the movie Big Business, starring Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin, whenever I wear black and white polka dots? My sisters and I loved (still love) this 80s movie, and can quote pretty much every line.
