The ultimate travel dress

Maybe it’s the fact that this dress is slightly flight “attendantesque”, but something about it makes me want to travel. Whatever the reason, it’s a great dress to pack for your next trip. The fabric is structured enough to hold it’s shape, but does not wrinkle easily. As you can see, all you need is a pair of snazzy boots and a colorful scarf, and you are good to go.

Lovely with distressed denim, a pencil skirt, white pants, black pants, shorts, etc. I grabbed this off the sale rack at Macy’s, but for a similar poncho visit anthropologie.com. All sale items are an extra 20% off, so it’s a steal! Jeans are available at Macys.com.lace ponchowhite lacy poncho

So, I was really torn. I wanted to go through that rack because I knew there were great deals to be found, but my head was spinning just looking at it. Why is it that clothes become less attractive once they are marked clearance?
