Super Steal: How I Got a Loft Dress for $5.95

Don’t you just love a deal?  So, I visited the Loft last weekend to purchase the Military Bull Denim Jacket that you saw in yesterday’s post.  I am working on expanding my dress collection, so I browsed the dress racks while there and spotted the Pretty in Pink Watercolor dress.  Now, I have been eying that dress for a while, but could not find my size.  To my surprise, there it was a size 4 petite (I don’t usually wear petite sizes, but I am only 5’4”, so a la Tim Gunn, I decided to “make it work”)

The dress was originally $89.50, but marked down to an unbelievable $14.88.  To make that deal even sweeter, the Loft was offering an extra 50% off all clearance items.  There’s more.  I got an additional 20% off with an educator discount.  Final price, $5.95!


Belt—The Limited

Tights—Merona for Target

    Thanks @pigmentedpretty!

    @Sal Wasn't it though? BTW I don't think I've heard the word 'frock' since leaving home in St. Kitts. Love it!

    Thanks @Nerd Girl, @Sing, & @Elle. Things really worked in my favor on this find. If only things worked out like this all the time 🙂

    @Colleen, That is great deal. I wanted that dress that you found too! Anyway, you just missed the 50% off event. But, I am glad that the Loft introduced this new 30% offer on everything in store.
