A couple months ago while frolicking at the local mall, I happened to pop into Sears (for a quick trip to the ladies room) and stumbled across a UK Style by French Connection display.  I never shop at Sears, at least not for clothing, but this collection/collaboration looked promising.  After sorting through several racks, I headed to the dressing room with a few pieces.  The only piece that came home with me was this little tank dress.  I love the drapey fit and also the ruched detail at the hemline, which gives the dress a little sass.  The watercolor-esque print is quite fantastic as well.  A perfect summer dress to beat the hot Hawaiian heat. 

Have you ever found something pleasantly unexpected at a store you never shop at?

And since you're probably getting tired of seeing me carry my DIY over-sized clutch, I decided to show you all one of my many many many reusable bags. This is my fave as of late. After use, the bag gets stuffed into the bunny. Adorable, right?!

{dress:  UK Style by FCUK | flats:  Chinese Laundry | bag: Pier1 | sunnies: Rayban | watch: Michael Kors}

I thought this was too cute to share.  The hubbs got me two cakes, because I couldn't decide which I liked better... lemon or coffee.  After trying both, LEMON for sure. :)

Love, S

p.s. Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes!!

You look absolutely adorable in the last photo! I have to go through Sears in order to get into the main section of the mall near my house. I always find something interesting there despite never actually taking the time out to shop there. I love your dress and the item you picked out! :)

Aww, your cake photos are adorable! I love your dress, too.

I don't shop that often at Ross, but once I found a DVF bag there for $30. Definitely a great surprise in a store of very few hits and a lot of misses.

Sharon!! That dress (and you) are completely lovely. The hemline is amazing and the print is so much fun. I can't believe it's from Sears!!! I have always associated it with a completely outdated store. As for you, the fact that your hubby got you two cakes is beyond sweet and the gif is just adorable! Hehe again I'm glad you had a great birthday :)

Have a great week ahead!

I love FCUK. I remembered when I was in college I wore an FCUK t-shirt and my professor gave me a hard time as he thought that's just a reverse order of that 4-letter word. lol. Anyways, love the dress. I haven't shopped at Sears before. Surprisingly they have good stuff huh?

That's very sweet of your hubs! :)

L said...

Yay! I had no idea either! I love double cakes!

Mae Lu said...

Happy birthday, S, I know you two had an amazing time since you're an amazing couple.

I like the cutesy factor of the reusable tote, but the bunny sticking out of it kind of reminds me of a fetal siamese twin....
