Event Recap: Dots Spring & Summer 2012 Style Party

Recently, a friend and I had the chance to attend the Dots Spring & Summer 2012 Style Party.  There was champagne, sweets and shopping!  I can remember shopping at Dots stores many years ago and found the clothing cute and affordable.  Dots has been revamping and remodeling their stores, their clothing is better than ever, and still very affordable!

Major trends for Spring and Summer include hot colors, stripes, cropped jackets and sweaters, vests, wedges and lots of accessories.  Dots carries juniors/women’s sizes, and has an impressive plus size selection, too.  You can find clothing from casual jeans and summer maxi dresses to pieces for a night out and even work appropriate tops and bottoms.

I fell in love with all the colored jeans and really need a pair in mint green and coral!

Dots has a crazy huge selection of accessories and shoes, so you could actually go into a store and put together an entire outfit for a great price!

After some shopping and trying on a couple of outfits, the photographer on hand snapped photos of each blogger for an Outfit Challenge.  Each blogger chose a favorite photo of themselves to submit to the Challenge and the winner will be featured on the Dots website!

Even though it’s not a “posed” style shot, here’s the photo I chose to submit because it is a true representation of me :):


I can’t wait to see one of my fellow bloggers on the Dots website, it will be a great opportunity.  You can see all of my photos from the Dots event here.  See the photographer’s photos from the event here.  I signed up to receive e-mails from Dots and have already received awesome coupons for $10 off $35 and $15 off $50, sign up here.

    You should definitely check out Dots, everything is so affordable. You could get a pair of colored jeans in every color and not go broke! Thanks for the compliment, I really do love that photo :). Thanks so much for the compliment on my hair, I have been in love with this burgundy color for a few years now. I keep wanting to do something different but always seem to be drawn back to it again, go figure!
