I got a pretty new dress!

Once again, a Sears purchase. I always feel so Brady Bunch getting by Sunday best at Sears, but what can I say? I'm not picky, I couldn't give two hoots about labels and quite frankly, it's what's convenient and affordable.

Anyway, I spotted this dress way back in April and really, really loved it. It was regularly $50, but most of the time, it was on sale for $30. Since one can never accept a first offer, I took my chances and waited ... and waited ... and waited ... until ...

This past weekend, I was raiding the clearance rack at the good ole' Roebuck and Co. and there it was in all it's sherbet-hued, ruffly glory ... for $15. Score!

It just may be...

It just may be the PERFECT summer dress!

The only downfall with all the neck-rufflage, which I discovered on my 2.5 miles walk along a busy road from job #1 to job #2, is that one stiff gust of wind from behind, and I look like this ...

    First, Sears has some wonderful buys -- In my book, they've always been known for quality -- not sure who would dismiss good ole' Sears.
