My post with my little blue sequin clubbing dress has somehow landed on my blog a day before one of the most wholesome, family-centered holidays, Thanksgiving! Anyway, buying this cute little number was an honest mistake. I was waiting to meet a friend until she got off of work a few weeks ago near union square, and the next thing I knew I was in the Burlington Coat Factory. It totally wasn't planned, I swear. I honestly don't go shopping that much: it is just widely know that I have a clothing obsession so people give me many free items and I also make things or alter old pieces.
However, once in a while it is always lovely to find myself on a rare shopping occasion when I am not working or looking for something specific. On this day I discovered that Burlington Coat Factory has more than just the awesome discounts on quality brand coats that it's known for (practically all my coats are from a Burlington in Connecticut), it also has tons of cute, cheap dresses! I love places like Marshalls and TJ Maxx which are simply goldmines for fabulous discount pieces, so it was a great surprise to find how great the clothing other than the coats are at Burlington. I highly recommend looking there the next time you are looking to score a deal on a cocktail dress, name brand or not!

Style Tip: Don't be afraid to mix a heavy shoe with a little dress. It's very "in" and gives your look an edge.
