A Great Find for a Great Night

Sunday, August 26, 2012

On my business trip to California we had an awards dinner where we had to dress up. Normally I don't want to spend too much on clothes for business trips, especially for formal events for work, because I'll have to settle for something conservative or boring, or wear the outfit only once.

Just so happens, I was browing around TJ Maxx and I found this amazing Nanette Lepore dress for 1/3 the original price. It was the last one on the rack, and I wasn't sure the size would fit me. I had even found another Rebecca Taylor dress that I thought would look better. But I tried on the Nanette and it looked amazing, fit just right and was just over $100. Plus, it's work appropriate! I wore it with my Bandolino nude pumps and pearl drop earrings.

I even got to be Vanna White, handing out the awards on stage to the winners!

Don't forget, always check the bargain stores before spending too much on an outfit you'll only wear a handful of times. You never know what you'll find!
