Cardigan: J Crew
Faithful readers to my blog know that I am a big fan of online shopping. I really dislike going to real-life stores, especially when looking for clothing. There's something about dressing rooms that bugs me. Online shopping sites are somewhat limited in Canada so that's why I often where the same "brand".
I was excited a few months ago when I found out Ricki's, the Canadian clothing store, has online shopping. However, I didn't place an order until last week as I find that their shipping to be a little pricey. Really, any shipping that isn't free is pricey to me. Hey, I'm frugal.
Last week, however, Ricki's had a great sale; 50% off the lowest price AND 99 cent shipping. I loaded up my cart and hit buy. My package arrived fairly quick and I was really impressed with the contents, which includes this dress. The clothes are pretty good quality for the price (this dress was $25). There's a lot of polyester blends, but it is so hard to avoid the big P (polyester that is).
My verdict; I'll be shopping at Ricki's as long as the shipping costs stay low.
On a related note, a lot of my co-workers were amazed at how my cardigan matched my dress. The dress came with matching flower pins that I removed to put on my cardi. It confounded many.
