Color this blogger excited because I just received my very first fashion show invite!!
I was invited to attend the Art of Fashion event in South Beach, a fun show put on by searsStyle, and I couldn’t be more excited!
To prepare for the Art of Fashion event, I went shopping at Sears for a new outfit! I grew up shopping with my mom at Sears and have loved the way Sears has grown and changed with the times. I know that I can always find a good price on current and trendy clothes at Sears – and with my Shop Your Way Rewards bonus points membership, I always save a little extra!
Before I headed out to Sears, I did a little browsing on ShopYourWay.com and built up a little Art of Fashion catalog with some of the styles I wanted to try on when I arrived at Sears. I simply looked through the searsStyle page on ShopYourWay.com and added the items that I liked to my catalog – and I shared those great styles with my Twitter followers too!
You can use ShopYourWay.com to buy the items in your catalog online, or just use it to create a wishlist of items you want to buy in the store, like I did!
I knew that I wanted to look at the Kardashian Kollection once I arrived at Sears, so I went straight to that department!
I was happy to find that basically everything in the Kardashian Kollection was already on sale between 40 and 60% off! I knew I would save a bundle with those sale prices and by using my 15% additional Shop Your Way Rewards coupon!
I normally wear dresses and I immediately tried on a Kardashian Kollection dress, but I decided against it. It was a little dressy for a day time event and I wanted something more casual and stylish! I also love a nice pair of jeans with a simple blouse, because I enjoy accessorizing. I much prefer to wear a simple top that can showcase a nice scarf, a great statement necklace, bangle bracelets and dangly earrings – and a great handbag and shoes!
I went over to the Juniors department and started looking through the BONGO line, one of the cutest and trendiest clothing lines available at Sears! Luckily, I am pretty short, so I can fit into most Juniors clothing lines!
BONGO was also having a great sale, with most things being 50% off! BONGO wasn’t the only line that had a sale, most of the clothing at Sears was on sale with holiday specials! Metaphor, Levis, Self Esteem and True Freedom were all 40% to 60% off!
I found these great tops at 40% off as well!
I decided to buy a pair of stylish jeans and a nice blouse and accessorize, since I have a ton of jewelry leftover from my direct-selling days. I knew that some of my jewelry pieces would great with the colors, textures and patterns of the clothing lines I was seeing in Sears!
I checked out the Bongo skinny jeans but they were a little too trendy for my taste. I am in my mid 30’s and colored jeans can be very hard for me to pull off. I prefer a dark blue or black colored pant, so I left the Bongo section and headed back to the Kardashian Kollection to look for a nice pair of jeans.
The Kardashian Kollection at Sears had several different styles of jeans; the Khloe, the Kim and the Kourtney – and then they had them each in a few colors. I was really happy with the selection, and I was even happier when I saw that they were on sale for $33.99!
What an awesome deal!! I settled on the Kim style, which was a curvy straight leg jean in a dark blue wash. They weren’t very long either, which is a problem I sometimes have because I am so short. I think I can even wear them with my pointy toed flats and be fine!
I ultimately decided on the Kim jeans, a dolman sleeved blouse and a gorgeous silver and grey scarf, all from the Kardashian Kollection at Sears. You can read all about my shopping trip for the Art of Fashion event in this Google+ story.
After the generous holiday sales and by using my 15% off Shop Your Way Rewards coupon, my total came out to just under $74.
Considering that my budget was $75, I’d say that’s not bad at all! I got an awesome outfit at an unbeatable price, thanks to Sears!
