I have nothing to wear…

Since the weather has been turning nicer I’ve started to do what I always do at the beginning of every new season. Complain. Not about the fabulous weather, but about my lack of appropriate clothes for it. Yes, you will open my closet and see that it is busting with clothes, but  I hate all of it and don’t want to wear any of it. 

My poor hubby is tired of hearing me complain especially in his eyes he opens draws and poof there is lots of clothes. To remedy this I’ve started to go through my closets at the beginning of a season and take inventory. Have I worn it lately, do I still like, is it too worn to wear, is the fit just horrible now? I started to do this today and realized I have slim pickings.

Since I haven’t found a money tree yet I need to make sure that the purchases I make are appropriate in these current economic times. Normally I head to Nordstrom Rack where I can still get my designer duds at quite the discount or hit my local resale shops. Last night I was flipping through Glamour and saw a great ad filled with 4 sun dresses that I would love to snatch up.

I was totally convinced that they would probably be out of my price range, but I was wrong they are from…………………………KMART!

I went online to virtually shop and all of my favorites are on sale this week with 30% off and range from 17-24 bucks plus I can print out a $10 coupon here!

Here are some of my favorites:

blue maxi dress matte jersey dress

green tunic dress multicolored maxi dress

white button dressjs green jacket

purpleskirtyellow dress

Hopefully these aren’t too good to be true and actually look good in person. The closest KMART is about 30 mins away, but I’m venturing out tomorrow to check it out. I’ll report back with my opinions on them.

SO CUTE! I tried on the purple tulip skirt in person and it's very cute, good fabric. (I just couldn't decide what color shirt to wear with it?). All of that being said, I DID end up buying a cute dress while I was there and they definitely have stepped up their game. I think you will be pleasantly suprised..except when I went they did not have all of the cute dresses that are shown online, in the store. Good luck!

Oh yes please do let us know about the K-Mart clothes. I feel the same way girl- I am dying for some new clothes. At the end of May some friends and I are going to have a clothing swap Party. Have you ever heard of these? Eventually I am going to put it on my blog about the swap so others can get all the details. But maybe you could try it with some friends. Daisy~

I am a huge fan of hunting at thrift stores and you can update a simple outfit with a new necklace... I love finding fun vintage items too. I found a vintage coat with a Saks label which I love.

I love that little yellow dress. I got one similar at Old Navy for $15 and have had a ton of girls ask me where I bought it. I love bargain finds!

ha! we were just talking today about people shopping at Kmart in NYC. Every time I go I see people with Kmart bags. I don't think I've been to Kmart in 10 years...and I'm from TN...we know about some Kmarts! The dresses are cute.

Hi Ladies,
I finally made it to Kmart today. I went with my mom and we spent over 2 hours there ohhing and ahhing over clothes. I got lots of cute things. Tops and a jacket for 20 bucks! Totally worth a trip. Tried on tulip skirt really cute, but I have a short torso and it didn't look great on me, but my mom picked up. They didn't have a lot of dresses in the store, but seeing the quality of merchandise in the stores I have no qualms ordering online.
