Fall Preview: Dressbarn

While I admit, I’m probably not Dressbarn’s core demographic, however after participating in their blogger challenge, I learned it is a store that has something for everyone (and at an affordable price point). It just comes down to combing the collection for what’s your style and cut. Here’s a sneak peek at what the retailer is launching for fall (as well as my favorites from the collection).

Pretty Connected Favorites:

{How cute is the back of this dress?}

{Faux bomber jacket}

{Soft oversized tops are a staple in my wardrobe — add some leggings, ballet flats and a long necklace and you’re good to go}

{Stretch pants! The mannequins are wearing a size 10, I’m curious to see the fit in my size — I’m all over the flower print although it feels more spring appropriate}

Dressbarn's Flutter Sleeve Ruffle Wrap Dress

After working with Dressbarn for their suit drive to benefit Dress for Success (I hope some of you we’re able to donate!), the brand approached me for a fun challenge — finding a universally flattering dress despite size and shape. Does a one-dress-looks-good-on-all frock exist?

Well here it goes… the 5 Ways to Wear It: Spring Fashion Challenge.

The Contestants: 5 bloggers, 5 different shapes

The Dress: Dressbarn’s Flutter Sleeve Ruffle Wrap Dress in Cobalt Blue ($39.99)

Description: Flirtatious ruffles flutter at the sleeves, edges and hemline of this slinky monochrome wrap dress, which ties at the waist to create an instant hourglass shape. 37″ from shoulder to hem. Full wrap detail closure. Material is 95% polyester/5% spandex. Machine Wash. Available in Size 4 – 24.

{How I rocked the Flutter Sleeve Ruffle Wrap Dress}

I went for more of an edgy rock-glam look when outfitting this dress. I styled the wrap dress with Ray-Ban sunglasses, Winter Kate jacket, mark. necklace, Express bracelet, Skweez Couture tights, Zara shoes, and Rebecca Minkoff bag.

Usually I find when shopping online the items look better on the site then when they come in the mail. Not the case when it came to this dress. It fits like a glove and cobalt blue is all the rage. It’s an easy dress to take from day to night and style in a variety of ways. It’s also really easy to pack so this dress will for sure be going on my Beirut-Rome trip I have planned next month!

For all of you Dressbarn fans, they we’re nice enough to offer a 20% off coupon for all of you to enjoy, valid through 4/30. Details below:

March 1-4th: Donate a Suit Jacket to Dressbarn for Dress for Success

For the past week, I’ve been raiding my closet and putting everything I don’t wear into boxes and downsizing like a mad women. The only cure for my ‘maybe-I’ll-wear-this-someday’ pack rat condition is knowing that someone else can appreciate (and actually wear) the item more than me.  Two big boxes and a suitcase later, I’ve decided to donate to them to non-profits that focus on helping disadvantaged women regain economic independence by providing them with business attire and career skills. Two great organizations that do so are Dress for Success (which is international) and Bottomless Closet (which is NYC based).

And amidst all my organizing, one of my blogger friends sent me this info! Women’s apparel retailer, Dressbarn, is hosting a suit drive this weekend in benefit of Dress For Success.

What: S.O.S.-Send One Suit-Weekend.

7.6% of women today remain unemployed, with many of them lacking the most basic necessity: a job interview suit.  You can make a difference by donating to the March. 1-4 national ‘Send One Suit’ event conducted by to Dressbarn.

When: March 1st – 4th, during regular operation store hours.

Where: All of the 825 Dressbarn stores. A complete list of stores can be found at www.dressbarn.com.

As a thank you, Dressbarn will offer donors an additional 15% total purchase savings for their generosity.

I should also note for all you beauty bloggers and brands that read my blog, the other thing I really love about Dress for Success is they accept unopened products — both personal and corporate donations. And for someone like me that gets more gift bags of products that are the wrong skintone or type then I know what to do with, it’s wonderful way to donate them.
