Frugalista Find

I know you’re just aching to go wander the aisles of Walmart looking for the next fantastic fashion trend, but really, their selection of dresses this Spring is worth the effort. I read the entire Better Homes and Gardens April issue while I was stuck waiting in a doctor’s office this week, and this dress was featured in their fashion section:

Women's Dobby Shirtdress, Walmart, $14

Okay, so it was featured in gray, but I adore the red.  Of course I was heading to the grocery store last night anyway, so I went to check it out.  And sure enough, this dress is great.  The belt hits at the waist, but the pleats don’t start until just above the hips, and the ever-so-slightly above-the-knee length and cap sleeves give the dress a very youthful, springtime vibe.  Its only drawback is the material, which is a loosely-woven cotton that will wrinkle like mad when it’s washed.  However, a $14 dress is worth an ironing every once in awhile.

While browsing the dresses, I also stumbled upon this one:

White Dress with Woven Belt, Walmart, $14

I couldn’t decide between the two, so I got them both. The white dress will look fantastic with a springy cardigan or a very casual but fitted jeans jacket. It’s also begging to be worn with a chunky necklace and gladiator sandals (which I also spotted at Walmart for a reasonable $10).

Walmart is NOT usually my go-to destination for cute clothes, but I figure if it’s in BHG, it can’t be that bad. And, surprise! It’s true. Along with the new spring dresses, there are some beautiful tops as well, so give it a try. You can’t go wrong for $14.
