new find!

Have you ever heard of Cato? I never had, but Oh.My.Word., I might be in love! You see, I am a shopper. But my go-to stores are always Ann Taylor Loft, The Limited or Target. 90% of my wardrobe is from one of those three stores. But that is a problem when you are trying to be good and spend as little money as possible due to the outrageousness of fertility costs! So I try to avoid the mall at all costs, otherwise I know that I can't resist the temptation and will come out of there will shopping bags full of goodies.

And I'm a skirt girl. I will go for weeks on end and wear only skirts or dresses to work. I love the summer for cute skirts. I am always on the lookout for slinky-ish skirts with a cute pattern or something fun about them. But I love the ones that are S,M,L...pull on, no zippers, etc. Just pull them on and go. The problem is that they are somewhat hard to find. UNTIL NOW!!! So Cato isn't in the mall. It reminds me of a Dress Barn-ish kind of store in the way of quality, prices, location...you know, always in a little strip shopping area. In my case, it is next to the grocery store. Who would have thought? So J asked me to go to the grocery the other day and get some bread and milk. Walking in, I spotted the Cato and thought, "What the heck?!" I was in the mood for browsing and thought I'd check it out even though I didn't think it would be my kind of store.

Let me just tell you! I found the skirt shown along with 2 others that are similar in fit but different in pattern, a shirt and a pair of shoes all for...are you ready??...$50!!! Yes, the quality is not to the level of ATL. But the stuff is CUTE and for the price, I figure if I wear it this year and next, it'll have paid for itself! The shirt was $5. The skirts were $17 (full price), $12 and $8! The sale prices are ridiculous! And I figure that, really, the quality isn't any different than Target's quality. They're simple skirts. Simple design...simple stitching. And how CUTE is this little gem!?!?! I love it! I'm wearing it today and have gotten so many compliments on it.

So the moral of the story is, if you have a Cato, go in! Try it out...you might be surprised!

  3. We have Cato in my little town and let me say, it has been my secret for years. I get so many compliments and people say, "you always look so cute." and I just say "thanks" and know it was all Cato! Did you check out their jewelry section? Cute cute cute fashion jewelry and watches at a fraction of the price! Here's a little "old timey Cato shopper" tip. Next month, go back and they will have all their summer stuff on serious clearance as they break out their winter merchandise! Get stuff for next summer! Congrats on your find! Super cute skirt, by the way :)
