As most of you know I engaged in the Herculean task of wearing 71 Dresses in 71 Days and during that time didn’t allow myself to buy even ONE item of clothing.  (I did slip once when I received a 50$ gift card to Anthropologie, which is like giving an alcoholic an empty wine bottle, he’s just going to HAVE to fill it up).

Since the end of that experiment I’ve taken to wearing dresses most days, which I love.  There’s no pinch at the waist should I overindulge and they make me feel happy and pretty.

With our dear friends The Richards.  Why is everyone so tall?

But now the time has come to buy a new dress.  And I have the perfect excuse.  On October 19th I am going to my 30th high school reunion.  Yes, I know I look like it can only be my 5th high school reunion, but I drink the blood of virgin Alsatian choirboys.

First I trolled the department stores and found myself liking dresses in the 200-400$ range.  This simply is not going to happen.  So I trolled about online and I think I’ve found the perfect site for getting the perfect dress … drumroll please … Ultimate Outlet.

These are my choices.  You pick:

The Spiegel Solid Jersey Know Waist Dress for ... you might need to sit down ... $24.00  crazy right?

This post was brought to you by Ultimate Outlet for Spiegel.  Pop over and tell them I sent you.  Best, S

    Shanon, Do not drink red wine if you have invested in a fabulous black and white dress that you thought was going to make you look wonderful. The stain never will come out. And, those ‘hot’ guys are married to women who did not age well.
    Wear the black, and you’ll be the hottest lady around. Be your fabulous self!

    Truthiness abounds as I say verily that all three will look stunning on you. The cut of the black dress seems most “you” but then what do I know about you? The purple and blue would be great colors on you however. Or you could go in a lacy bra and panties and really take over the reunion. But that might take a few more Alsatians.

      Did I misspell Alsatians? I need to google that. Loving the black dress. Bra and panties may frighten if I bend over.

    I like the black one for this occasion. But Shannon, isn’t this also not-exactly-buying a new dress if it’s sponsored? This is a fantastic way to lengthen your no-buying streak!

    Just buy all 3, it would still be less then the price of your usual dress. They would all look fabulous on you. 6

    Those prices are amazing. I’m heading over right now to see what I can snag.
    PS: The blue would look fab on you – but the bow dress is to die for!

    I love the shape of and the jaquard on the black dress… but not loving the bow. Guess I would go for the blue one next.

    My first thought was purple. But then I saw the blue. Don’t buy the black one. The bow in front is too big. The blue will be lovely on you!

    Definitely the black, but only if you or a seamstress can alter/remove that bow.
