I’ve had my eye on a particular Kate Spade dress for my bridesmaids for a while but it was $425. I waited and waited for it to go on sale and hoped it would eventually go to the sample sale where it would be much more affordable [like under $200]. Well it did go on sale online, but it was still $300ish and disappeared instantly [duh]. I was pretty heartbroken, so I started looking for similar styles for the girls, with little to no luck. I found a couple styles by Alfred Sung that were kind of close like this and this. So my mom and I planned to check them out last Saturday. Well Friday afternoon I was minding my own business when my BFFMOH [that's her official title..] sent me a text with this photo:
I just about died. Judging from the context clues in the background I instantly knew she was at the Kate Spade Outlet in San Marcos. So I quickly texted all of the girls and had them figure out their sizing, and my mom and I drove to the outlets to snag four of these babies. Luckily when we got there they had TONS of sizes left and I was able to find everyone’s. My mom and I also wanted to try them on for fun so that happened.
It was true love! The empire waist is totally flattering, and the perfectly pleated skirt has such a feminine flair that makes this dress truly timeless. It basically fit like a glove. You can’t see it here, but the back scoops down elegantly. It’s basically the greatest LBD ever. Oh and the best part? It was marked down 40% from $425, then an additional 30% off of that price PLUS I had a 10% off coupon for my total purchase. Which brought the dresses down to $170 a pop! What???? I know. So I grabbed up everyone’s sizes and skipped on over to the counter, made my big purchase, and was back to SA in a snap.
All in all it was the most worthwhile whirlwind trip ever. And I just loved how perfectly packaged [and color coded] each dress was. Thanks Kate Spade! You always know the way to my heart.
I know all brides say this, but I’m really wishing I would have bought one for myself, it’s just so darn cute! So now that I have this checked off my list I can really start visualizing how the girls are going to look and the whole day is really starting to come together. Never in my life did I think I’d ever find the Kate Spade June dress at such an affordable price, so I’m feeling very very fortunate. The fashion gods are definitely shining down on me :)
