You know it is rough times when your thoughts about "going home" primarily revolve around the stores you would shop in and the restaurants you would eat at.
So is it a problem that when I think about going home to El Paso, TX most of my thoughts revolve around eating at Chicos Tacos and shopping at the Dollar General?
Back in the day, the Dollar General was where I would go to stock up for the annual house move.
What? You didn't move apartments/homes every year at tax time? Overshare much?
In any event, with $20 in your pocket, you could set up your kitchen and your bathroom and pick up a few really cool other things too. What I never DID know was that you could also get styled pretty there.
I mean, I knew you could buy toiletries and even makeup. But I didn't know you could buy some of the hottest fashion trends around.
I think I did create a baby basket full of goods from Dollar General so I think I knew that they had cute baby goods.
But as summer comes around and I find myself dressing in really simple shifts and the like, I really don't feel like I need to pay $50 for a jersey knit maxi dress.
And I definitely don't need to pay $90 for the cute bracelets and earrings that would take that simple dress to simply stunning. This, my friends, is where the Dollar General Apparel Book comes in.
(HInt, if you don't have a DG in your neck of the woods, get a peek at the book by typing in 79924).
Leaving the short dress and the hat behind, I'd totally buy everything else on this page. I even have the perfect sweater to make that maxi dress work ready. Those cute socks are to die for. The rest of it would be great for yoga class or gardening.
Speaking of yoga class (Hatha Hot Yoga and Yin Hot Yoga...that's a post for another time)
$8 Yoga capri pants and $6 - $8 performance bras and tees are prices I could layer on with abandon.
Yes. I have to layer my performance bras and tees. TMI? Not.
But even those super cute jean looking knit capris in fun colors.
Those would work with my curves AND the colors can not be beat.
I could stop there. But why?
Before Yoga, I thought I was going to take up swimming again. With a $16 swimsuit, I could totally afford some flippers and goggles.
And do you spy what I spy? That $5 Missoni-ish iphone case? It, alone, would ALMOST be worth spending the points to get home and buy it.
You should totally like Dollar General on Facebook and follow Dollar General on Twitter. Clearly, they are splashing out with pops of color and awesomeness that can't be missed.
You KNOW you have an opinion about it, already. So spill it. Spark up a conversation...
