The $30 Work Dress

Time and time again, you’re heard me rave about these shoes, and that bag, and this skirt, etc.  Often, they are pieces I have found at Target.  It is safe to say that a large proportion of my work wardrobe is comprised of pieces from Target.  Why?  Well, my local Target happens to be a Super Target.  I walk in and have the supermarket side of it to my right and the regular Target non-supermarket side to my left.  The non-supermarket side happens to carry clothing.  LOTS OF IT.  Some of it work-appropos.  So, I walk on over for a few and scope out the new merchandise before grocery shopping for the week.  I am usually gone for an hour or so, but long enough to get some shopping in!

In this case, I didn’t find these dresses in store, but rather online.  I signed up for the Target emails, and one morning a couple of weeks ago, I got one alerting me that women’s Merona clothing was all 40% off!  So, I took advantage and checked out the goods! That’s when I found this dress:


This one is a size 2 and fits like a glove.  Size 2-18 are available online.  It is thick-ish material, so it doesn’t show every detail of your undergarments, and comes in three different colors (i.e., black, grey, and navy)!  I LOVE IT.  Best of all, it is only $30, even at regular price!  It’s perfection.

I loved it so much, I got it in all three colors.  Hashtag: “oops, I did it again”.  LOL.  Anyway, make sure to read the reviews to get a better sense of what size to order.  I wear a zero in regular, a 2 in petites, so I suppose this dress runs on the smaller size…maybe.  At worst, you can order a couple sizes and keep the one that fits best.  Good luck!  I think you’ll be pretty happy with this one!

Until next time!  Stay ‘Chic’!

Valentine’s Day with SammyDress

Disclosure:  I partnered with SAMMYdress for this post, however all opinions are my own.




I was recently introduced to SAMMYdress — an online clothing, jewelry, shoes, make up, you-name-it-they-have-it company.  AND, they have men’s clothing too!!  My first impression of the site was: SERIOUSLY?!  Are their prices really that low??  As I perused their clothing section, I realized that not only were prices amazingly affordable, but that the fit and quality appears to be quite decent.  Many of the items listed on their website include photos from prior purchasers wearing the items.  Most also include a review from the individual indicating what size they are and what size they ordered from the website.  This gives one a decent idea about the garment as well as what size one might want to order.

Currently, SAMMYdress is hosting a Valentine’s Day promo. The following promo codes are available with every purchase:


15% discount through February 20th.

Subtract $ 3 $ 30 + $ 5 Off $ 40 +, $ 8 Off $ 60 + $ 10 Off $ 80 +, $ 14 Off $ 100 + $ 18 Off $ 150 + $ 30 Off $ 200 + $ 35 off $ 250

The more you buy, the greater the discount.

As mentioned previously, the website carries a wide variety of garment and other items. Some of the items may be considered a bit risqué for some, haha, so be forewarned that you may come across them as you navigate the pages of the website.  Otherwise, consider this a site where you can find some über affordable threads should your pocketbook be suffering after the holidays!

Be sure to drop me a note in the comments section below if you happen to order from the site!  I have not yet ordered, but may be doing so as I prepare for V-day!  I have my eye on a couple of dresses and hope they will arrive in time for the holiday.  Oh yeah, that reminds me: As I have not yet ordered, I have no idea what shipping times are like, so if you order, keep in mind that shipping times may vary.

Good luck and happy shopping!

Until next time!  Stay ‘Chic’!
