$7

I had some time to kill one day and I happened to drive by a Ross. I hadn't been to one in a while so I thought, "Hey, lets check it out!" I wandered around and ended up getting a lot of great deals.

I found a rather simple black dress that seems like there are endless way to accessorize. It's got a scoop neck, half sleeves, an empire waist and the length is a few inches above the knees. Pretty basic. $10

I found a drape-y purple cardigan. I've got some ideas on how I want to wear it, so now for the weather to call for a cardigan. $10

I found a pair of satin ballet flats in, again, purple. It's going to be so hard not to be matchy-matchy and wear them with the purple cardigan. The color is the same in both. $6

Lastly, I found this dress that I am wearing in these photos. The color and the ruffles made it a no-brainer for me, but when I saw the price, it sealed the deal even more. $7

I decided to keep the dress simple and pair it up with these shiny shoes I bought from Target after Cristina featured them on the Kaboodle blog. They remind me of wet nail polish.

It won't be long now before this sleeveless dress will need tights and cardigans and coats to keep it weather appropriate.

I thought of you when I was moving my daughter into the dorm this week. Like you, she's quite the fashionista, and it didn't look for a while like all her shoes, dresses, bags, tops, pants, etc., would fit! Fortunately, she raised her bed about 4 feet off the ground, and used that space for storage. Whew! It was close!!
