What I Wore (from Wal-Mart)


I am an impulse shopper.

Not always a good thing.  (Like when I came home with vintage lockers.)

But sometimes it's okay.

Like when I went into Wal-Mart for milk and walked by a rack of dresses.  Did a double-take at a cute striped one.  Went to try it on.  And added it to my basket......


I know I already have a striped dress that I styled similarly.  But for $14.88, I couldn't go wrong, especially with the whole hi-lo trend (that I like on other people but wasn't sure about it on me).

It's different enough from my other dress.  Longer.

Right?

So.

In conclusion.

Wal-Mart has cute dresses.

And impulse shopping isn't always bad.

  2. Never would have guessed that dress is from WalMart - way to go! I'm not sure how I feel about the hi-lo trend on me, but you're rocking it!

  3. I love this Danavee!!! I have been searching high and low for a black and white striped maxi! And I'm loving the knotted chambray with it too! I'm an impulsive shopper too but this was definitely one of those "good" impulses!

  4. Walmart. Really? Huh. I never thought to shop their clothes section. That dress looks GREAT! Definitely worth the purchase.

  5. Very cute! I agree that the high-low trend is super cute and that it looks good on you. I'm not very tall at 5'7 but I am long in the waist and kind of long legged so this style cuts me off in a weird way. But I like you, like it so I will probably keep trying.
    And way to score on an impulse buy! Very few people can say it works out so nicely for them!

  12. Wow, I never think to shop there! When I was younger, I was crazy skinny and really tall and gangly, and nothing there fit me. But maybe I'll have to try again! That skirt is super cute, you look awesome.

  31. I bought a workout shirt there last week for less than $6. I liked it so much that I went back and got 5 more!

  32. I think you look great with the high-low trend. I think it works best on a longer skirt, like yours :)

  33. Great find! I like the subtle high-low hem.

  34. Um yeah, you definitely can't pass up a cute striped dress like this one. You will surely get your money's worth out of it. Walmart always suckers me into purchasing more than I want to.
