When dress stalking, one must be very, very quiet. Here, we see this number in its native habitat. The dress’ natural camouflage can make it hard to pick out from the background. The determined shopper, though, will spot it, bag it, and bring it home.
Dress, I Heart Ronson. Headband, Forever 21. Necklace Steve and Barry’s. Pumps, Pulse. Cuff, Pangaea.
I Heart Ronson is carried by JC Penney and I quickly located the dress on the Penney’s website (along with a navy and purple striped cardigan of the same brand). Repeated mouse clicks failed to deposit the items in my bag and I was confused until I noticed small red letters telling me that the items were “unavailable.”
I fretted about my frustrated purchase for a day until someone suggested I find it at a brick and mortar store. To my delight, I found that one can do search the stock of local stores through the online item page! The dress and cardigan were in stock at the Stone Creek Town Center store. I cadged a ride up north and now they are mine, mine, mine!
This isn’t the first item I’ve tracked down from a magazine. It also took web searches and multiple store visits for me to find this leather jacket (Wilson’s) and tartan dress (Bitten) after they were featured in magazines.
Ah, the thrill of the hunt!
