Clothing bargain from CATO's

Ok, so here's the thing. I don't wear dresses, I just don't. Jeans, Tshirts and sweaters? I'm there.

I had to pick up some groceries today so that my family doesn't starve, who would have thought that you need to feed them? Joking! Anyways, there is a store in town that I always walk in front of and look through the windows but, always thought it was a higher priced store so I never went in to shop. Besides that, I rarely ever buy myself any new clothes.

I went inside to browse and found that they are not high priced as I thought they were! (CATO's) This store had a ton of clothing on clearance and I looked through the racks. I found a rack full of seriously cute dresses and tried a few of them on. I haven't purchased a dress in over 10 years and the last dress I wore was to a funeral 10 years ago.

I found several problems with the dresses, actually with myself, lol. Nothing wrong with the dresses except for the way I thought they looked on me. There was one that I really wanted but, I didn't like how my stomach looked in it although it actually made my breasts look good for once, lol. I didn't buy it and moved on to trying on a couple more dresses.

Ok, here's the dress that I chose, it looked best on my figure as I do have curves. The dress is still a little bigger but, they didn't have a smaller size. It doesn't flare out like it does in the picture but, since it was taken outside and it's breezy, the wind caused it to look wider than it is. The black part on top is actually like a jacket but, I couldn't do much on the hanger for a better picture. The entire dress is lace with a black slip underneath.

What do you think of this dress? It was marked down from $36 to $11.99. I still need to work on my stomach or buy something to wear underneath until I can lose more weight. I am losing weight though, that's a plus! Everything I tried on was too big and I had to try on smaller sizes.

I thought that maybe it was time to own a dress for a casual night out sometime. I really am trying to wear more "girly" clothes and add more color to my wardrobe, it's just taking some time. BTW, I am 32 years old and I am not thin so sexy clothing really doesn't fall into my category at the moment.

I also picked up a pair of pants, blouse and a bottle of perfume. My total came to $39, I really needed the clothes and I earned the money this weekend so after I put the other money up towards bills and groceries, I decided that I really needed to do something for myself for once and you know what? It felt sooooooo good!! I didn't even spend all of my birthday money that my mother sent to me on myself, this was something very rare and normally I feel guilty but, this time? I actually don't. Sure, I could have used the money on something else but, we really should treat and take care of ourselves once in awhile and this time it was my turn.

Don't forget to take time out and treat yourself once in awhile!
