Dress: Kate Spade Saturday (not sold online) similar; Nordstrom, Blue Fly, Nordstrom Rack | Shoes: Calvin Klein | Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs | Necklace: New York & Company (old) similar; Lola Boutique, Forever 21, Saks off 5th
This is my favorite dress for transitioning to fall. Not only is it made with some of the best, thick, material, but it’s comfortable and guess what it has? POCKETS! Though I’m wearing this with opened toe sandals, I plan to pair it with tights and boots when the weather gets colder.
I found this dress at T. J. Maxx for only $25 and it’s Kate Spade Saturday. I know everyone says T.J. Maxx is hit or miss, but you honestly have to keep your eyes open. My coworker told me she never finds anything when she shops there. I told her ‘You can’t go to T.J. Maxx looking for something extremely specific, because you will never find it (never say never, I know)’.
Another thing – if something doesn’t fit you right, don’t be afraid to get it altered. This dress was a little big in the waist, so I had it tailored. If you really like an item of clothing but it doesn’t fit you quite right, it’s always a smart investment.
Did you know that Sandal comes back on tonight? I AM SO EXCITED! Thank God for Hulu and ABCGo, because I definitely can’t afford cable once I move to the big apple. Follow along with my commentary on twitter gladiators @viviejohnson, see you tonight!
