Right now is a good time to buy a dress. So many of them are on sale and on clearances. The dress I originally had was $178 and I got it for $110. They have it now on black dot clearance for $35. Can you imagine?
I bought this dress at JC Penney's. I don't know if you have an Elder Beerman in your area or not. Other stores they have are, Bon*Ton, Bergner's, Younkers, Herberger's and Carson's. I'm sure they would carry the same things. Macy's had several cute dresses too.
