I went to the Loft on my lunch break a few weeks ago for a pair of pants and my saleswoman said the magic words “Everything is 50% off”. Talk about a lunch power hour! This amazing quilted dress was one of a few dresses I picked up. I absolutely love the quilted detailing of the dress. I am a huge fan of solid colors with textured detailing right now. I think the texture adds a fresh look on everyday silhouettes. Shopping on my lunch break can sometimes lead to impulse shopping, so when speed shopping I think about how many ways can I style this piece, the more ways I can think of the more likely I am to buy it. I usually apply this philosophy to all shopping ventures, but especially when speed shopping to prevent impulse buys I will regret later. When I saw this dress, I immediately thought of multiple ways to style it and I was SOLD! For fall when the weather is still warmer, a pump is perfect. This dress also looks great solo with a colorful cardigan over it. With the temperature slowly dropping, I plan to style this with black boots and a darker button down for winter. I think this gray will look amazing with a maroon/oxblood top! Next time you are out shopping and undecided about a purchase, think about how many different ways you can wear the piece. If you can think of at least 3, it may be worth purchasing!
