Dots Spring & Summer Style Party



A few weeks ago I was invited to attend the Dots Spring & Summer Style Party at their Hillside, Illinois store.  The purpose of the party was to introduce us to the remodeled Dots store and their new clothing options.  Of course, they plied us with champagne and a $50 gift card to spend on whatever we wanted in the store.  Since everything in the store is under $40 that gift card goes a long way!

There was also an outfit challenge.  Put together an outfit from Dots clothing and the winner will be featured on the Dots website.  The winner hasn’t been announced yet but I thought I’d share some of the outfits I put together with you.  Can you guess which one I submitted to the contest?

Purple dress, peacock feather belt, same shoes


Pink blazer, tank top, lace skirt, polka dot wedges


Same blazer and skirt but with layered lace and solid camis


Polka dot skirt & wedges, layered lace and solid camis, shrug

I also made a few outfits with a pair of white jeans but unfortunately those photos of me are totally awkward.

I went home with the white jeans, pink blazer, striped tank, purple dress, and peacock belt.  I’m still not sure how I feel about the dress and the jeans.  Shopping and champagne are a dangerous combination for me!

Which means I’m thinking about going back for that skirt….
