Pretty in pleats

Isn’t this dress to die for? Nothing like feeling pretty in pleats. And tiers upon tiers. How fun is this dress? It’s a Lulu’s original but I found it at Nordstrom Rack.

Lulus tiered, pleated midi dress, Nordstrom Rack; Red wedge peep toes, old; Red floral necklace, Ann Taylor Loft; Rose gold clutch, Marshalls; Rose gold sunglasses, Ross.

 

While everyone else was shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, I was over at Nordstrom Rack checking out the already reduced prices on all of their clothing items. I’m definitely one for a good deal, and The Rack has way better deals than the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, IMHO.

This dress would be perfect for a summer wedding guest outfit. I felt like I was all dressed up with no fancy event to go to. Instead, we headed out to Hood River for a day trip.

It was a bit windy so I added a top later on, but still, a beautiful day for a drive.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer. I have been on vacation this week and it has been amazing. Not long enough, though. I think I need to move to Europe where they get month long vacations to our week long ones in the States. Or win the lottery…

Pink embroidered off shoulder maxi dress

While every other fashion blogger out there is writing about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I’m over here like, I can’t afford to shop at Nordstrom’s, so why should I promote that? Even their sale items are too expensive for me! I’m the one who goes shopping over at Nordstrom Rack – on the clearance racks at the rack, to boot! Or shopping at Marshall’s TJ Maxx, or Ross, cheap but new clothing. Or at any clearance rack in any store for that matter. The cheaper you can find things, the more you can buy, amirite? I’m a bargain shopper by nature. Even when I have money, I still like a good bargain. I may go check out the Nordstrom Anniversary sale at some point – or not – but in the meantime, here’s a cute pink embroidered off shoulder dress I picked up for a really good deal on Marshall’s clearance racks. Who says fashion has to be expensive?
