Though we own several really nice pieces of clothing from Walmart, it’s not typically the first store I think of when I need to pick up a specific item. More often, it’s a happy accident encountered on my way to grab some fresh greens for the evening’s dinner or the like.
And so it was the case last week. I needed to pick up a few items for Father’s Day dinner, and on my way back from tracking down the prepared horseradish, I spied this adorable little black dress. Recalling that my oldest daughter had recently mentioned needing a new dress for our upcoming beach vacation, I pulled my cart off to the side for a closer look.
Imagine my delight when I realized that, not only did they have one size small left in stock, it was marked down to just $11! It’s like it was meant to be… So I tossed it in the cart, hoping that it would meet with her approval — because you know a preteen’s taste in clothing changes with the breeze.
Luckily, she loved it as much as I did! It’s fun and flirty, feminine without being too revealing, and loose enough that she can still wear some shorts or leggings underneath. ‘Cause if there’s one thing I know for sure, there’s never a soccer ball far from this girl’s feet!
And did I mention it was only $11??? You know my budget looooovvves THAT.
We did a little trial run to show it off, even curling her hair with this awesome curling wand for the occasion. I also let her borrow my much coveted Miss Zoe by Calinana necklace and bracelet. I’m telling you — I have definitely gotten my money’s worth and then some from this gorgeous jewelry. And there are still SO many pieces I want to order from the collection!
