We have a lot of upcoming travel, some of which may include a funeral. My navy suit is too big (yippee!). My mom pressured me to buy a new outfit at K-mart, should we need to leave unexpectedly.
I chose a two-piece black "slinky knit" outfit that I could dress up with pearls and throw in the suitcase without ironing. I never buy new clothes, so I was shocked at the K-mart price: $35! Two wearings later, the new fabric developed more frays and pulls than an old sweater. I saved my receipt, and K-mart's store manager was understanding enough to refund my money.Today I found this similar--but higher quality--outfit by Chico's: v-neck top, straight skirt, and slacks. After the K-mart debacle, I knew that $9.99 was a bargain. The K-mart outfit was a knock-off of Chico's, in the first place! No one else had scooped up my outfit because it was mistakenly tagged "3X". Chico's uses 1, 2 and 3's for sizing.
