Short post today...I'm up to my eyeballs in paperwork for school.
I'm furiously trying to finish up progress reports.
If you are one of my supervisors, please disregard that last statement.
I was just kidding.
I of course know that progress reports were supposed to be in the system two Fridays ago, 
and of course mine were.
Of. Course.

If you are here today visiting from the YOLO blog help, WELCOME!


 Before I get to my post today with the least expensive dress on the planet, please remember to enter the contest for the Stella and Dot earrings (a $50 value)!
Just click HERE and follow the directions.
after receiving a couple of requests via facebook and twitter.....
I've decided to add 2 new ways to get extra entries:
*You can get 1 extra entry if you follow me on Twitter (@simsslp) and  tweet about the giveaway.
*You get another extra entry if you share my link from Friday on facebook. (Just click "share".) 
*And remember that you get an extra entry if you place an order through the online trunk show! 
If you do any of these things, remember to go place an additional comment on the blog post.
EVERYBODY wants these earrings!  
In fact, my friend Andrea had an idea that I thought was HILARIOUS!
She wants the earrings so badly that she thought there should perhaps be an essay contest on 
"Why I deserve to win the GORGEOUS Stella and Dot earrings."
You guys better be glad that it's not an essay contest, because I'm quite sure that Andrea would win!

And in case you are still looking through the catalog and thinking about placing an order...
Check out these two little lovelies.

LOVE that this is gold and silver.
I want this for me I think.  It's sitting in my wishlist online.

This necklace is so sparkly, so simple, and so sweet.  
And it's only $39!
I think I told you Friday that I know 2 people that are getting this for themselves, their sister, and their mom.  Love that idea!
I got a necklace like this from the hubby on my 30th birthday, and I wear it constantly!

Okay....time for the post.
Today I am just highlighting a dress I tried on this weekend.
The Women's Crepe Tie-Belt Shift Dress.
From Old Navy!
This is the same dress in 3 different colors, and it also comes in a pretty emerald green.
And for $19!
In stores on Friday it was $19, but here it is online for $25.  
I mean it's obviously still a good deal at $25, but $19 is crazy fantastic!  

The little man wanted to get it on the action.
It's kind of like a game of Where's Waldo.

Okay...that's it for today...
back to the progress reports that of course are already done.
Of course.


  1. $19? But you look like a million bucks! Especially with that handsome young man hugging you :). Love the dress! And love, love, love the Stella and Dot earrings. I will fight that Andrea to death for them. (I'll probably lose though because she has the fiesty pregnancy hormones on her side!)

    1. Shay - laughing so hard! Yes...Andrea is feisty right now! :)

  2. That's a great dress, instant outfit! My kind of dressing. Your little man is too cute. :)

    1. Alison - that is EXACTLY what it is. An "instant outfit". Love it! :)

  3. Just lovin your blog. I just found it a couple of days ago. Your a genius!! I actually feel like maybe I can do try different outfits too. Im very fashion challenged. Lol. Scared to try on thing because I feel lik a dork. All the models I see are 9 ft tall and super skinny. I'm 5'4". 150 lbs so I feel like a bowling ball with legs lol. I'm losing weight right now so finding your blog was a God sent. My question to you is how tall are you? You don't look super tall but you do look thin . I'm a huge fan of old navy so I loved seeing this post. So fun to see what items look like on a real person. Keep up the great job!! Ps. Your little man is adorable. Do you have a search button? I cant find it. I'm using my cell phone. Not sure if the view and options are different than on a reg computer.

    1. Hi there! (Wish I knew your name!) I am soooo glad to know that you are enjoying the blog. I certainly am having a fun time doing it. :)
      I don't have a search button, but when you look at the blog on a computer, I do have an "Outfits Organized" tab where you can look through different labels such as "denim shirt", or "skinny jeans", etc.
      Please keep reading and commenting!
