Budget a bit tight? Why splurge, when you can steal a great look for less? There is no need to blow your budget on expensive clothing when fashionable items can be found for less at stores such as Sears. I was provided a gift certificate to pick out an outfit and I was rather happy with the choices that I encountered.
It has been awhile since I shopped at Sears. In my college days, I used to shop Sears quite a bit for their decent selection of affordable items. Sears always kept an eye out for trends and stayed up to date on fashion, making them a favorite choice of mine. But over time, as my income increased, I tended to overlook Sears in favor of other, more expensive options. Going back to do some shopping there showed me that Sears is still doing quite well in the fashion department. The UK Style by French Connection collection and the Kardashian Kollection in particular had a number of unique and interesting items. Sears is also a decent choice for petite basics, something that I need, given that I am 5 feet, 2 inches tall!
I picked up two outfits, one to feature here and the other to feature on Girl Gloss. I was happy to find most of the items on sale. The below outfit features petite pants by Apostrophe ($19.98), a very comfortable sweater from the Kardashian Kollection that has an interesting cutout pattern along the sleeve ($34.99), and a Kardashian Kollection belt ($20). The complete outfit was right around $75. I particularly love the belt with this. It is comfortable, stretchy, and it works well to hide some bulges that I am more than happy to hide!
Each item in this outfit will work well with other clothing items that I already own, and they also match up well with the items I purchased to feature on Girl Gloss. I noted while shopping that the both the Kardashian Kollection and the UK Style by French Connection Collection had stylish items that mixed and matched together quite well. I wanted to grab shoes for the outfit, and Sears had a great selection, but I have ridiculously tiny size 4 to size 5 feet, so I was out of luck there. But that is nothing new for me. I am accustomed to shopping specialty stores for shoes in my size! One additional note: The Kardashian Kollection also has a nice selection of affordable handbags in a number of sizes.
Overall, this was a fun shopping trip that resulted in some nice finds for not all that much money. If you are looking for some affordable fashion, head on over to Sears and take a look.
