Last week I mentioned that I was taking part in the Dixie Outlet Mall She Who Hunts Finds Blogger Challenge. I was given a $200 giftcard and challenged to “save as much money as possible, while building a Spring outfit I love.” I’m SO excited to finally reveal my finds!
So what do you do when you’re challenged to find a Spring outfit you love in a mall full of bargains? You end up buying TWO outfits! First up is this gorgeous pink dress I spotted at Winners – designed by Kenneth Cole Reaction, it was marked down from $188 to $60. I love the light material, midi length and small sleeves.
To accessorize, I added these sleek Nine West Heels (priced at $60 instead of $100) and this luxe leather red wallet clutch from Danier. I can’t tell you how much I love this clutch! Similar in size to my Chanel WOCs, it’s made of saffiano leather yet was on sale for $25 (down from $69).
I had my dress, heels and bag BUT I also had quite a lot of money left on my gift card – so I headed to Fairweather to check out their dresses. Nothing says Spring like florals – and when a dress is marked down from $80 to $20 – you HAVE to grab it, right?
Here’s a breakdown of my spending – I paid $165 for $437 worth of clothes – saving $272 in total. So if I saved more than I spent, does that even count as shopping LOL? I really enjoyed my Dixie Outlet Mall experience – I felt like I was able to find classic pieces at bargain prices. Where else could I spend $165 and end up with two amazing outfits? You’ll have to tell me – which of these dresses do you prefer – pink or floral?
I’m so excited that one of my readers will be able to go bargain-hunting at Dixie Outlet Mall too, because I have another $200 Dixie Outlet Mall gift card to giveaway. Enter the rafflecopter below to win!
DISCLAIMER: I received a Dixie Mall Gift Card so that I could participate in this challenge.

There is absolutely no possible way to choose between those two gorgeous dresses. They both are lovely, and I see them for different occasions. 🙂
Thank you Mary-Irene – I actually ended up wearing both of them last week – they're definitely great spring dresses!
You look gorgeous in both!I like the look of the complete outfit (bag, shoes) of the floral dress best. Great finds!
Thanks! Yes, the black shoes and red back definitely match the floral dress better 🙂
I love your pink outfit! The colour is perfect for spring!
Thanks Jackie – wearing pink makes me happy – so I'm glad I could find such a wearable dress!

Thanks Lilly! I really love both dresses too – I think the pink one is a bit more unique though!
I had a strong feeling you were going to go for the pink one haha. It's a lovely shade of pink and you look gorg! Love both of the outfits. I ended up doing two as well 😀 Check em out if you like. I also love the shoes you chose!!
This is such a cool post! It reminds me of a column that I believe InStyle does. You look gorgeous! I really adore both dresses, and they fit you so well too. They really suit you!
It was so much fun to put this post together – I hardly ever shop for complete outfits – just bits and pieces – so this was a different experience 🙂
I have been looking for a red clutch = LOVE!
It's a great clutch – so well made and reasonably priced!
I love the pink dress!
Thanks – I love it too!
The pink one is super pretty on you.
