Newport News

New territory. Owing to the rising gas prices, I no longer make unplanned trips to my favorite off-price retailers to see what’s in. Those trips have to be strategically scheduled to maximize efficiency. I do, however, spend more time online shopping.

I stumbled onto the Newport News site recently and was pleasantly surprised by many great deals. Today’s featured strapless dress with its tropical floral print, shirred sweetheart neckline, and pleated skirt, on sale for $25, is one of those bargains.

As if the price was not low enough, I googled “Newport news coupons,” and found a couple valid codes—L40 for 20% off, and 635 for free shipping. Newport News actually lets you use them both on one order too! The entire purchase, shipping included, totaled $21.95.

    What a positively lovely find. So beautiful and I’m sure you will do it well.

    I’ve tagged you with the Premio Award. If you’ve been tagged already, I understand. You’re still deserving for the wonderful fashion finds you share with us all.

    Love you much.

    Kira Fashion: Yes, that print is quite romantic indeed.

    Seeker: They do ship internationally. I believe there is some arrangement with a company called Access USA that allows you to order and have items shipped outside the US.

    The packing is moving along, but the countdown is on. Thanks for asking.

    Dana: That sweetheart neckline is a winner, right?

    Always in Style: I will definitely check out your post. Newport News has been off my radar for some years now. But, you are so right, there are amazing deals on trendy items.

    Imelda Matt: I kid you not. I don’t know how they do it. I don’t even want to know 🙂

    Style and the City-Paris: I look forward to them.

    Capis: It is quite flirty. Thanks for stopping by.

    Enc: I hope it works out. Not being able to try things on first is the thing I dislike most about online shopping.

    Secretista: yes, the two important C’s.

    Cheryl Lynn: I am so excited to get it. And, thank you do much for that tag. I am honored!

    Newport News always seems to disappoint me, sadly. The stuff looks great but when I get it in person it leaves much to be desired. I’ve made a couple orders from NN and the only thing I haven’t sent back is a pair of boots.

    Kelly: Uh-oh! I am keeping my fingers crossed about this dress. I still haven’t received it. I just hope the quality is up to par. I will surely follow up with a post once I receive the dress.

    yay! i featured that dress a while back when i did a post on floral frocks. can’t wait to see how you style it, and let us know about the quality too please 🙂

    Budget Babe: I knew I had seen this somewhere before!! I actually got the dress yesterday, and it’s a keeper. So, I will definitely do a post on it shortly.
