Outfit of the Day: Wearing My First Rue La La Purchase!



This was my first ever purchase from RLL! I was so excited when I bought it because I had $40 worth of credit to my account so the dress was only $30--what a steal! I took the full price tags off today (down from $248!) with the best sense of accomplishment! I was so excited to wear it to work and it was the perfect outfit for a hot day. I love the combo of the orange with the gold accessories and it will be a fun summer dress I can enjoy for a long time.

At school I had the hem dropped after a twitter request to all of my lovely followers native to Columbia, SC. After inquiring who was a good, experienced women's tailor who had good knowledge of dressy items, I was referred by 2 highly knowledgeable Columbia ladies to Jackie's on Forest Drive. Not only did they know the hot-spot and the go-to for tailoring, but the shop was full of expensive formal dresses so I knew I was in adept hands. I love this dress--and even more now that the hem is at a better length for me!

Happy Memorial Day weekends y'all!

I saw this on Rue La La and was oh so tempted. Can't go wrong with the Jack Rogers, probably my favorite shoes in my entire closet.
Absolutely love your blog!
