New find

   I don't usually get overly excited about clothes and such, but the Lord truly blessed me last week with two articles of clothing that I have desired to acquire for a long time now - A dress and a jean skirt that didn't make me look even shorter and wider than I really am :)  Everything I have been looking at (dresses mainly) have been so expensive ($50 - $70) and not as modest as I would like. Not anymore!  I found this dress online...

Norma Kamili - Women's Cap Sleeve Woven Dress (Wish I had a picture)

...drum roll please....unashamedly on Walmart's website for a total of $20.11!  Not kidding! I'm so happy :)

And then I found a nice long jean skirt on sale at Cato for about $10.99!

 I'm excited, not so much because of the clothes, but because I feel like I'm already being taught to be more frugal before I have my own family someday.  It takes some looking, but it can be done!


  1. Yay! So excited for you! Cannot wait to see them...and you!

  2. That is a such a cute dress! I love it~ and that price is great! I need to start looking for some spring/summer clothes- there's just not many stores to look at her in town! :)
    It was good to see you Sunday!


  3. There's nothing like a good deal! I get a lot of my clothes from consignment stores (I love them), I've found some great stuff for a fraction of what it would usually cost. I've been able find some really nice brands that I wouldn't usually be able to afford too. There's nothing like finding something great that's on sale!

  4. Ahh! I love it when I find a great deal on a piece of clothing that I love to wear! Being frugal is an excellent trait to have. :) Good for you for seeing the blessing in it instead of complaining about not having lots of money. Thanks for encouraging me to see those blessings.
