Designer Dresses for Less

Off the Shoulder Dress

I’ve been dealing with a reoccurring problem as of late. I’ll be wandering throughout Nordstrom and wind up in the pricier area of the women’s clothing department. Not realizing where I am, I start pulling adorable dresses and off-the-shoulder tops from the racks. After a few exchanges between myself and the kind sales associate building my dressing room, I make my way to try on everything. I pull a gorgeous dress off the hanger, try it on, and fall in love…that is until I check the price tag and realize that I have yet again forgot to shop within the area that meets my budgetary constraints.

Besides a few Snapchats and Instagrams, you may have noticed that there hasn’t been any new content on Class Meets Couture.

I know what you may be thinking. Is this girl for real? Did she give up on blogging? Is this just some random hobby of hers? Should I still follow her?

Weekend Reading

Weekend Reading | August 6, 2016

Flat Lay Desk

By the time you read this, I will be on my flight to RIO! Don’t worry, I have prescheduled content for next week, so make sure to keep visiting the blog! If you want real-time updates from the Olympics, be sure to checkout my snapchat (@catg89) and my Instagram (@classmeetscouture). I’ll also be sharing material on InstaStories (is that correct spelling?), but who knows where the world of social media will be after a week of the new update! For safety reasons, I will not be bringing my laptop to Rio but I may be able to upload some Olympic-related content while I’m there.

Anthropologie Romper - Class Meets Couture

My mom always told me that I should only buy something if I really love it. We used a little trick when out shopping to help us decide whether we truly wanted something or not. If I found something in a store that I wanted to buy, we would leave the store without buying it and continue our shopping trip. If I really was in love with the piece, I would drag my mom back to the store to purchase the item.

I know it sounds like a waste of time to double back to a store we previously walked in, but you’d be surprised how many times we would leave a store and not return to purchase whatever I wanted.

This trick works well to save money, but it can also cause some emotional heartache when it turns into a long game of phone tag. Let me explain.

Free People Victorian Dress

Free People Dress

Hey there! Just dropping in this Monday with a quick outfit post for you all. On average, my favorite summer days occur when I embrace spontaneity, throwing on a loose boho dress (thanks Free People for always having reliable dresses) with a pair of light sandals and small cross body (#NSale). I know this may appear easy, but I truly struggle when it comes to being social. I am very much an introverted extrovert.
