Today I am sharing with you My Saturday at Dillard’s!
Dillard’s in The Shops of La Cantera in San Antonio is one of my favorite places to be…most of you know that.
Saturday was full of fun…but did not start in the dressing room…it started in my closet at home!
Since I was attending a special event at Dillard’s which I was asked to help coordinate with other bloggers, I decided to wear as many Dillard’s brands as possible.
Being the first day of Spring…I also wanted to look, well, “springy.” So, I selected this chartreuse jacket by Ali Miles….Dillard’s carries many of her creative designs and they also come in petites.
My other Dillard’s brands were found in my Brahmin bag and James Avery Artisan Jewelry.
Tie on a brightly colored accessory scarf…and good to go!
A SPECIAL SATURDAY EVENT
Working along with store manager, Sheri (left), I was asked to invite local influencers into the store before it opened that day to customers to preview a new collection in the Antonio Melani department called Born on Fifth.
There were many who wished to attend, but because it was a Spring Break weekend, they could not…however, I was joined by Kimberly of The Real Golden Girl, and Erin of Cathedrals and Cafes, and we had a great time.
It is quite Southern, feminine, flowy, and inspired by the popular blue & white designs. It also runs small, so I could not enjoy any pieces for myself. However, Erin was a great model and purchased three garments!
DREAMING….I would flip out to be the one to inspire a collection for real women like myself…who love to look their best and are not a size 8!
Across the Spring 2021 fashion industry, there is an influx of the tiered dresses and a return to feminine details.
I am going to begin the reader slideshows tomorrow with someone who has “feminine” as one of her style adjectives. But “feminine” is also balanced with four more adjectives…hope you you will stop by.
Though I could not try on the beautiful clothes, there is someone in my family I made a purchase for…..
SATURDAY SHOPPING FOR ME
No trip to my favorite Dillard’s is complete without getting in the dressing room.
I looked over several collections but was drawn this trip to Gibson & Latimer. This brand even has it’s own version of a white eyelet dress which would fit!
The photo at the top and the Cropped Poplin here are G & L tops that really intrigued me, because I was surprised that I liked them….however, I really did.
I love what this SHOULDER PAD KNIT TEE does! The addition of shoulder pads gave it a more flattering fit and makes it possible for me to go sleeveless when I wear it in warmer weather.
I am trying a new product right now to tighten up the “crepe-ness” in my arms!
All in all, It was a great Saturday to be back at Dillard’s for an extended time….but I need to go spend more time in beauty and the shoe department next trip!! There is so much to see!
I am very impressed with Gibson & Latimer…here are some more of the current styles:
Hope you had a great weekend. On Sunday, I became fully vaccinated for COVID! Now, make sure you…..
