Buy it Now

Reader Teri asked about the shirt dress in my last post.  I got it at Wal-Mart for $12...at full price.  But right now this dress is at Walmart.com in 3 colors for only $8...holy buckets!  You can have your Wal-Mart order shipped to your nearest store for free OR pay less than $1 (per dress?) and have it delivered to your door.

If I sound like an advertisement for Wal-Mart, believe me, that is NOT my intention.  I just feel like it's my duty as a bargain-blogger to let my readers in on a good deal.
Every big department store has it's issues.  I'd like to say I'm 100% pro-Target...but I'd be lying.  There was even a little stint when I was a regular K-Mart shopper.  And I have the same disloyalty to mid-market retailers too.  Kohl's, JCPenny's, Sears, Herberger's, Macy's...I have had my fun with them too.  It may be the promiscuous way to shop, but its what works for me...its how I get my fix at the lowest price.

I have no idea how a post about this incredibly sweet, modest dress took such a sleazy turn.  Sorry about that.

All I meant to say was that this is a great dress for a worthy price.  Sizing runs a little large but may be shrinkable.

Well, what a are you waiting for?  Here are the links:  BlackRed, and Blue.

I'm going to be a bit of a bah humbug here. Although its improved somewhat since many of its worst practices were exposed in a documentary a few years ago, Walmart still engages in a multitude of unethical practices. I have boycotted them for almost a decade now. Those low prices come at a high cost.

Thanks for the link! I just ordered myself one in black. And yes, the shipping is 97 cents! I hope Target can forgive me for cheating on it (for the very first time). I agree with La Historiadora that Walmart has some pretty sleazy business practices but I admit I don't know enough on the subject.

Okay, so I bought this dress in the raspberry-ish shade. Absolutely hated the fit, but I just couldn't take it back - I loved the raspberry-ish stripe! So, I've altered it into an elastic waist skirt! I've never done anything like that, but now I'm constantly eyeing up dresses (especially those on the clearance rack)"Hmmm, you could be a fantastic skirt..."

Thanks for the tip on such a great deal!

Walmart may not have the best business practices, but I picked up 3 tank dresses for $7 each! I couldn't even get them that cheap from Forever 21. And the walmart ones are a more modest length.

Not to mention places like F21 and American Apparel (the only other place I found tank dresses) also have horrible reputations behind their companies.
