I went through my dresses on Sunday, came across this one, and got a little mad at myself for having only worn it once (maybe twice?) in several years. It's so much fun to wear. Steve calls me 'cupcake'. I feel like a cupcake. The weight and volume of the skirt makes it feel like a quality, boutique piece even though I bought it off the clearance rack at JCPenny.
It's only within the last few years that I have become a regular Penny's shopper. Even more so than Kohl's. Which is weird, because I grew up shopping at Kohl's. I think Penny's has a better selection of Misses and Petites. Better styles and fit (for me). And clearances that are equal to, if not better, than Kohl's. Do you shop at either store? Which do you prefer?
For being one who follows a corporate dress code (as lax as it is) almost everyday, I've had little use for the classic white oxford. Not my thing. But I keep one on hand for times such as this. I don't want to cover the dress with a cardigan. A t-shirt is too casual. Ok, fine. White oxford, you suck, but you win.
