Neutral Stripes

Just recently, I was shopping around for a little simple dress for my oldest son’s piano recital. I ran into a good friend at the mall and she told me to stop at Madewell because they were having a major sale. Of course, I did. I only paid $35 for this dress and I’m sorry to say, it is sold out! I don’t always understand how the sales in the retail industry work, but I do know that a friend who shares a sale secret is a friend to keep!




There is so much you can do with navy and stripes. I took a look in my closet and ended up pairing this dress for the piano recital with nude pumps (I’ll save the Tory wedges for a casual day). A red clutch would have worked well and pearls around my neck too. I loved giving this classic look a little edgy feel with the bold spikes on the Stella & Dot bracelet. Overall, I didn’t have to spend much and this is what I appreciated more about the outfit. Thanks, C!

How do you stay informed for sales at your favorite shops? Please share!

    A red cluch, shoes or necklace will give it a nice pop of color for a different look!
