So, for those of you who have read my blog the past 4 years may also know that I wrote a very short lived (but the BEST writing job ever) blog for the Kansas City Star called the Shopping Scout. Every day I posted about great finds at stores around Kansas City. Some of my posts were about local retailers, some included items from national chains. I decided I want to incorporate this back into my personal blog as many people I talk to say that they miss the Shopping Scout.
So, I am going to make it a weekly goal to do some "scouting" and sharing with you all. Look forward to great bargains, the look for less and just plain old fabulous finds.
First one comes today from the Limited of all places. I had gone there to try on some colored denim ( a friend loves their fit), but ended up seeing this beauty on the sale rack. $24.99 ladies...yes, $24.99. Wouldn't this be perfect for the holidays? I am loving the exploded houndstooth (the emerald green is much prettier in person) and drop waist. The style is sophisticated but with a bit of edge with the leather and grommet trim. I would style it with black tights and black boots or heels. The dress is a statement in itself, it doesn't need much jewelry at all.
I didn't snag it up, because I am not sure I need it. But geez, for the price I am thinking I may have to go back...
