I've had the best outlet shopping experiences at Premium Outlets. When I lived in Kentucky, I would drive to the Cincinnati Premium Outlets just about every weekend. The deals were really that great. One of my favorite finds from that outlet mall was a houndstooth dress by Max & Cleo purchased in a BCBG factory store. I think the dress was marked down as low as $30.
It's no secret that I love this houndstooth dress. You've seen me wear it a lot. See the dress styled for fall and styled for winter. Last night, I was brainstorming new ways to wear this dress. And, just like that, the dress was transformed into a peplum top. I folded the hem of the dress under and used four safety pins to keep it in place.

a faux pearl necklace. I tried to recreate that look with two necklaces I already owned.
