Sunday Sales: Dillards

Johnny Collar Short Sleeve Cotton Blend Polo Top

CeCe is a reader favorite brand known for novelty tops and Dillards has few fresh styles I haven’t seen before.

I like their Johnny Collar Short Sleeve Cotton Blend Polo Top available in coral (featured) and ivory in sizes XS – XL.

Would be super cute with white bottoms, jeans or shorts.

On sale for $41.40.

3/4 Sleeve Ruffle V-Neck Tiered Skirt Lace Dress

For a Tuckernuck-inspired look, I love this eyelet dress with a tiered skirt. It’s so pretty and feminine. 

A white dress in a sophisticated cut is hard to come by; trust me, I know. For my annual girls’ trip in January, we decided to do a theme night and have everyone wear white dresses—I must have ordered a dozen, and all but one looked like something I would have worn to my high school graduation. 

This dress would have been perfect. 

Available in regular sizes 6 – 18 AND has petite and plus size options.

Crew Neck Long Cuffed Sleeve Button Front Ruffle Organdy Blouse

For a not-so-basic white blouse, I love the ruffle option from 1. State.

On sale for $53.40, in sizes XS – XL. I love how it looks paired with light washed jeans. It would also be lovely in a monochromatic look.

Tie Waist A-Line Midi Dress

Another pretty occasion dress, this one is by Vince Camuto in an elegant, tonal pink pattern.

This has beautiful movement in the skirt, which is slightly shorter on the sides, allowing for “swing”.

Available in XS – XL for $74.40. Also available in plus size here.

Shadow Leopard Print Sequin A-Line Midi Skirt

I scooped up this sequin midi skirt in a tonal leopard print, also from Vince Camuto for the holidays.

I think it would be gorgeous with an ivory cashmere sweater and gold heels.

Available in XS – XL for $59.40.

Blister Jacquard Hardware U-Neck Cap Sleeve Blouse

You want something different? How about this jacquard blouse from Donna Karan.

This wont’ be for everyone but if you can pull it off, go for it. It’s unique and looks expensive but it’s on sale for only $53. 40.

Available in XS – XL.

I also love how it’s styled below, with simple slim lined pants that lets the blouse shine.

And for another Donna Karan find that looks like you found it in a designer boutique, I am obsessed with this Ponte Wrap Jacket for the cooler weather. With your coated jeans? Amazing.

Antonio Melani Bridgette Cane Woven Satchel Bag

So pretty.

Done in an iconic shape with cane details, this satchel is available in cognac or black. Go can’t go wrong with either.

Also includes an crossbody strap so you can go hands-free.

Originally $269 now $161.40.

Nadri Twilight Crystal 20mm Pave Curb Hoop Earrings

Finally, if you want a bit of bling in a traditional style hoop the Nadri Twilight Crystal 20mm Pave Curb Hoop Earrings are super pretty, updated, look nice on the ear and under $60.

I love loft. Great place to refresh her wardrobe and add some colorful more and trend pieces. Can you do a blog post on three different ways to wear the chambray denim top? I feel like I want to experiment with this trend of denim on denim, but not really sure how to do it other than wearing it with white pants. As always thanks for the great content.

Love your newsletter and your common sense approach to classic style.

Megan, recently in an article you talked about a makeup artist that you follow. I cannot seem to find the article. Can you give me her name again? Thanks so much!

Hi your website and am using my Pinterest page for shopping. Question, as an older woman with a tummy, I need layering pieces such as camis that are bigger at the bottom and not so slim as to show the flaws. Perhaps like something to wear with the sweater you are showing today. Any ideas there would be great. Thanks.....

Megan - It's that time of year again when I start trying to find white jeans/pants . Yes, it might be a little early but if I don't start now I won't have them to wear in the spring. I'm in a weight gain season so I am getting frustrated that all I have been able to find so far are smaller sizes. Suggestions?


Sunday 15th of January 2023

Thanks once again for great ideas!! Can't wait to get my items!


Sunday 15th of January 2023

Love your posts! Can you do one on sundresses/cover ups etc for a winter getaway to the beach? You always find the best things! Thanks!

It looks like J Crew is offering an additional discount on sale items- it brought the necklace down to 17.50!


Sunday 15th of January 2023

I assume prices are in American dollars, Ordering from US is always a tedious process, and returns are a pain. I have a Borderfree account. Any suggestions ?

Megan Kristel

Sunday 15th of January 2023

This is an US based website and I am a one woman show, I don't have any suggestions.


Sunday 11th of December 2022

Hi Megan, So many great posts this month! Question: I have the J Crew V-Neck Soft Gauze Popover and really love the weight and quality. I struggle with the tuck - I'm short waisted so a little long to not tuck but the vent cuts on the side always seem to poke out just looking off when I do try to tuck. Any suggestions?


Sunday 11th of December 2022

I bought the green ring too - so cute and while I was there updated all my power gem bracelets from Gorjana (I wear them every day) - fun post today! Especially love your note about getting back to the spirited side of you and why you love fashion xo

This is great! I am looking at the Ann Taylor pants! Thanks!

DSW has a sale right now. 25% off with the code BFF25. It's their Friendsgiving special.

Hi! Where can we find the belt in the photo? The one with the joined circles?


Sunday 4th of December 2022

@Wendy, Hi, I think Megan has shown this one or a similar one from Amazon.


Sunday 18th of September 2022

I like this one! I like the texture. I feel like it would help hide lumps!😁


Friday 16th of September 2022

Hi Megan, I love the look turtlenecks but I don't typically wear them because they elongate my already very long torso. Would layering a shacket or vest on top help balance out a long torso or should I still steer clear ?


Monday 12th of September 2022

Looking for warm white pant recommendations


Sunday 11th of September 2022

Where would you recommend buying warm white jeans that you talk about pairing with the puff sleeve cardigan?


Sunday 11th of September 2022

My new jeans are boyfriend and straight ankle length. So can’t wear with my Caslon booties?Absolutely love the AGL booties but they are $630 in Canada😢


Tuesday 6th of September 2022

I picked up the Old Navy Jeans today, and they fit me very well; I expect to get a lot of wear from them. While I was there, I tried on the Plaid Flannel Boyfriend Tunic Shirt and was very unimpressed - it easily added 20 lbs to my entire torso! I see now that the models online are all wearing much smaller sizes than they should be to accurately show the fit of the shirt. Their sleeves are much too short and the "drop" shoulder doesn't drop on them. The fit on the plus sized model appears to be more accurate. Have you considered doing a post on shirt jackets, plaid and/or solid colors? Thank you!


Sunday 4th of September 2022

I picked up those Madewell sneakers; they are so good. Do you think we can wear them with a dress? I'm still trying to figure out this sneakers with dress thing and would love guidance. It seems really easy to be frumpy instead of trendy with that one.

Megan Kristel

Monday 5th of September 2022

Yes, actually we're featuring them on Wednesday because so many readers picked them up and I have them paired with a sweater dress. I think you just have to find the right one for our bodytype but it would be really cute.


Sunday 4th of September 2022

Thanks so much for letting us know that the Madewell sneakers are now 30% off. I bought them two weeks ago for $110 and returned them, but I’ve been thinking I should have given them more of a chance to break in before returning them so quickly. I just ordered them again, and this time they were only $67!

Hi Megan! I hope you do a "leather blazer 3 ways" piece, showcasing one like the Anouk style, above. I have a very similar blazer and would love some ideas on how to wear it. Thank you and keep up the great posts!
