Where I Found This Glamorous Gown At 98% Off

I love high-end items. I also love a good deal. When those two loves converge, style miracles happen. I walked into Gordmans recently and found a huge stash of Halston Heritage gowns. These dresses were marked down from over $400 to under $10! $10 for a glamorous gown? Yass!

I don’t know how Gordmans merchandisers do it, but they negotiate their buys at such low prices. Gordmans is a regular Economy of Style sponsor (see some of my favorite collabs with them here, here, and here), and I shop there all the time because of amazing finds like the dress I’m sharing today.

What I’m wearing:

Halston Heritage dress | Gucci belt | Sandals | Face: Pat McGrath foundation (#26)

Lip: Fenty Beauty Ma’Damn | Eyes: Bobbi Brown Couture Drama palette

I chose this Halston Heritage printed one-shoulder gown. It’s such a glamorous gown! It was marked down from $425 to $9.98 in Gordmans. I was convinced that the decimal point got transposed. When I checked out, though, the dress rang up even lower at only $7.99.

This dress caught my attention because of its asymmetric flounce drape, above-leg split, and the tie at the shoulder. The style gave me Grecian goddess vibes. This photo shows the dress worn as is.

I hoped my Gucci belt with its signature green and red stripe would add a nice touch to this dress. It did.

I experimented with some new beauty products when preparing for this shoot. My foundation is the newly-released Pat McGrath Skin Fetish: Sublime Perfection Foundation. I’m wearing Medium Deep 26, which is a perfect match. At $68, this foundation is a tad pricey. I love the finish of the product. I also love that I don’t feel like I’m wearing anything on my face.

    Psyche, this is stunning! I actually came across several Halston gowns in my local Gordman’s too but nothing nearly this vibrant and elegant. Lucky you 🙂 But TRUST I tried on everything in my size when I saw the rock bottom prices lol.

    Side note – I love how you’re also keeping us up to date on the newest beauty products!

      Thanks, Brittany! You were smart to try on everything. I feel like driving back out to mine to try on a few more. 🙂

      I’m so thrilled that you enjoy the beauty tidbits. I’m really loving this new foundation.

    STUNNING! The color is lovely on you and the price is incredible. Hey, it helps justify the purchase of a pricier foundation that also looks great on you–win/win! 😉

      Thanks, Tara!!! And, yes, I totally agree on the foundation 😉

    This dress is gorgeous, and you look fantastic. I prefer it without the belt, but that’s probably how I’d wear it as I don’t have much of a waist to define.

      Thanks, Kirstjen! I totally get it. I was torn between the two looks and will definitely mix it up (belt one day, no belt the next time) 🙂
