Earlier this week I had a flood of requests for pictures of the dress I got for Derek's cousin's wedding (okay, okay, it was technically only two requests for pictures, but to me that's a flood)! So my wonderful mom took some pictures for me. Here they are; these pictures were taken on my parent's property - it's finally starting to look like fall here (as opposed to summer or winter).

Please ignore my painfully white legs - I just threw the dress on for pictures, no time for nylons. Of course I'll be wearing nylons and black pumps with it at the wedding.



I got this dress for ten dollars on clearance at TJ Max. I love the clearance sections at those already-cheaper-than-normal stores! The belt I got at The Icing for twelve dollars - not that great of a deal, but the total price of the outfit isn't bad.



I thought I'd also throw in a couple pictures of my new winter coat. Remember how I was telling you that I needed a winter coat, since it's snowing here already?



Well, I thought I'd have to pay at least a hundred for a nice peacoat. Bet you'll never guess how much I got this coat for. Forty dollars! I love Ross. I knew I either wanted a winter coat that was an interesting color (like red or blue) or had an interesting detail. Black is a pretty basic color, but what I like about this coat is the over-sized lapels - that makes it interesting to me! I like to pick clothes that have some interesting feature about them if I can, so I was very happy with this find. And I could hardly pass it up for forty dollars, even if it isn't red or blue!



So what do you think of my purchases? How do you like the dress for an evening wedding in October?

I love that pea coat! I love how it is cinched in at the waist to make it look more flattering and not bulky like other coats can be! The dress is cute and you did a great job finding a coordinating belt!

Very cute, Callie. :) I like all three purchases. Dave and I are big fans of Ross, TJ Max, etc. too. :)

Oh and I cracked up when I read you'd had "a flood of requests for pictures of the dress" and I was thinking to myself, "Really, a FLOOD??" and then you clarified and I cracked up even more. Sounded like something I would write.

Super cute dress and a great bargain too! Also I love your jacket! I got one last year that I thought was a pretty good deal, but it was definitely more than $40!

I really like both the dress and the coat...cute! I also like peacoats that are interesting colors or have interesting features. I have a black one, a pink one, and a black, blue, and gray plaid one (my fav) :-)
