A few weeks ago my mom and I hit up Ann Taylor Loft the day after they had marked down all of the winter and Christmas styles. Nearly everything was at least 75% off. I don't shop there on a regular basis because there are only select pieces that are my style, but when they have a seasonal sale- I am there. I came away from the shopping trip with 3 dresses, 2 sweaters, 4 jackets, and 8 shirts. I know that might sound excessive, but the most I paid for an individual item was $13. I got $100 jackets for $8. Eight dollars! Trust me- you would have done the same thing. One of my most exciting purchases was this red dress. It was originally $100 and I got it for $5.

I'm a sucker for detailing on clothing and I love the roses on the neckline of this dress. I still can't believe I got it for $5. I am so excited to wear it out. Granted, hubby and I won't be going out for our sushi dinner on Valentine's Day because we are not fond of crowds, but we will be celebrating it soon. It's sort of like I get two Valentine's Days. One will likely be spent hanging out at home together on Saturday- or possibly going for a drive, and the next will be dressing up and going out to dinner next week. In my $5 dress! 

And if I was willing to pay more than $5 for my V-Day outfit, I'd get these accessories:

shoes - earrings - tights - purse    

But alas, I don't have a budget for accessories, so I will have to make do with accessories I already have and, of course, my fabulous $5 dress.
