Well then things get published on Sunday night.
You know I love a good Splurge vs. Steal…
and today I have a GREAT one.
But I’m thinking you don’t want to spend $298 on one dress.
Oh wait, it’s on sale. Now it’s only $199.66
And here’s the steal….just as DARLING…..and
BECAUSE OF THE FLASH SALE (THAT ENDS MONDAY MORNING AT 9 CST) THE DRESS IS ONLY $44.75!!!!!
You can’t tell me that the steal isn’t just as cute (if not cuter!) than the splurge…and
you can save
I ADORE this dress.
There are 5 reviews left on this dress, and they are all over the place. 2 left 5 stars, 1 left 4 stars, and 2 left 1 star.
Personally, I would give it 6 stars if I could.
I tried it on in store some time last month, and for some reason I left without it.
I was all, I don’t wear dresses that often, I don’t need this dress.
But it haunted me.
And I decided that even though I didn’t technically need it, I had to have it.
Because I loved it.
So I hopped online last week and ordered it.
The day after it arrived I met my photographer so he could grab some pics of me in it.
And just to be clear, my photographer is my hubby. And I met him in the backyard.
Because we’re fancy like that. 😉

For size reference, I’m wearing a Petite Small.
I’m almost 5’4″, and I like my dresses short, so I usually wear a petite in dresses and skirts, but never in pants or shorts. I often wear a medium in dresses, but a small was perfect for me in this, so I think it runs just a tiny bit big. But just a tiny bit.
Do y’all love this dress too?
I mean, IT’S SO EASY!
I loved rolling the cuffs up for a casual look, but I felt like I looked really put together.
And I’m of course wearing my new favorite necklace and my tried and true blingy hoops.
And I’m guessing most of you have noticed MY NEW BAG.
You know that I have been carrying my St. Anne Florentine Leather tote (type Florentine in the search bar on the top left and then scroll down to the St. Anne) from Barrington for over a year now. I have other bags, and I sometimes like to mix it up (like with my new cross body or a fun fringe bag)….but I carry my leather tote 80% of the time.
Well, somebody call the sheriff, because there’s a new bag in town.
I have a 3 part series coming up with Barrington that starts in October, but I had to go ahead and preview my newest bag today, because it’s just that good.
I have no doubt I will still be carrying my leather St. Anne tote, but this one will definitely be in heavy rotation as well. It’s a bit smaller than my St. Anne (it’s called The Savannah), it has a bit more structure to it, and it has a zippered top. And I love the pattern and color.
I usually get my initials on my Barrington bags, but this time I got the Barrington crest…
but you can add your monogram for just $5!
Barrington’s site is having trouble with their links, so follow these instructions:
Click HERE….Go to New Arrivals….click on Create Your Own Fall Fashion…choose the Savannah zippered tote….for color choose the blue…..and for the pattern choose the fourth pattern from the left.
OR, you can also spend a sweet forever playing around with other color and pattern options.
Not that I would know anything about that.
And remember, use the code PTMTSAVE10 for 10% OFF!
Click HERE and follow the instructions above.
I think it looks great with the military green of the dress. I also think it will look so good paired with mustard! You’ll see the bag paired with jeans in a couple of weeks, and it looks great with those as well. It’s a vibrant print and color (it actually kind of looks like denim in person, which sounds weird….but is AWESOME), and I know it will go with so much!

And because I sometimes try to act like a fashion blogger, I felt the need to do the mirror image pic.
Again, cuz I’m fancy like that.
I’m almost done gushing about the dress . For today anyway. 😉
This dress is everything I look for in a dress, but the 5 biggest positives about the dress follow:
1) It’s comfy. 2) It’s flattering. 3) It has pockets. 4) POCKETS! 5) It’s flattering.
And when you add in the price point, NOT buying it would have been going against the universe.
And WHO AM I to go against the universe?

Leave a comment with your thoughts.
Are you typically a dress person?
If not, could this one make you change your mind?!?
And just in case you want to see some other favorites that are included in the 50% OFF FLASH SALE….
And y’all…I haven’t seen these in person, but I’m totally intrigued by these leopard fluid joggers. They have incredible reviews! And the flight jacket is also too cute!
And THIS top reminds me of the MUST HAVE shirt, and it has some pretty colors!
And I’m thinking THIS worn like the flight dress above…AND with my MUST HAVE leggings and boots would be perfect! Or what about with my new papryus converse?
SO FLIPPING CUTE!!!

I really wish I could just take you shopping with me. I would never have taken that dress off the hanger to try on, but seeing it on you makes me NEED it!
Erika Slaughter says
Holy Mama!!! I am a dress girl and that is CUTE!! You are too darling in that dress.
Would you size up or down in the Converse?? They have been sold out for so long in my size 8, my order has been cancelled twice now because of selling out too quickly! The Nordstrom people said they don't know if they'll re-stock or not… Or should I hold out to see if they re-stock?? Thank you!
Hi Christina! Are you looking specifically at ones that have the gathered elastic at the back? If so, go down just a 1/2 size. If looking at the kind that don't have elastic on the back, I suggest going down a whole size. Hope this helps! xoxo, Sheaffer ::)

Hi Sheaffer ~ do you think that mixed media top from Loft is long enough to wear with leggings?
Hi Mary! I don't think so. Sorry! 🙁
