liking Kohl's

I went to Kohl's during my lunch hour to exchange a watch that I gave to my wife as a Mother's Day gift. There were lots of discounts throughout the store, so after the exchange, I shopped for girl mode in boy mode.

First, I looked for a belt to go with my beige cropped pants and found a perfect match, a $24 belt on sale for $12.

Next, I looked at dresses and reconsidered a Dana Buckman jacquard zebra dress in brown and white. I had eyed the dress last time I was in the store, but now it was on sale, an $80 dress for $48. I had a 15% discount coupon in hand, so how could I resist; the dress would cost only $40.80 and the belt only $10.20; that's $104 list price for $51.

Coincidentally, I was pining here yesterday for a jacquard dress and today, I found one! The dress fits like a glove and the hem lands about two inches above the knee. It is very cute!


  1. Aren't sales great, especially the clearance ones? A couple of years ago, I scored a leather coat from Torrid, originally $149, for just $17.50. Nicely done!

  2. Jaye --- That was a super buy!

    Sounds like a lovely dress, if your examples were anything to go by. Hope you'll be showing it off to us soon!

  4. Anonymous --- It is now in a bag in my car waiting to be returned to the store because it was too small on top (or I am too big on top).
