Awhile back, I was approached by Dots to check out one of their Long Island locations. I was definitely interested, as I had never stepped foot in one of their stores before. About five years ago, when I had asked a friend if I should stop in there to look for a dress for a night out, they told me not to bother - the stuff fell apart after a few washes. Well, most of the stuff I've purchased from H+M hasn't lasted an entire season, but that same person rants and raves about H+M. I've even watched their purse from the store fall apart while we were out shopping, so I figured I would give Dots a shot. I mean, I needed to see it for myself. Plus, if the prices were as affordable as they claimed, I would be cool with the item just making it through the season.
After I finished touring The Container Store, it was off to Dots in Levittown. Since Avalon couldn't come with me to snap some shots, my mom came along with me. It was nice to spend the afternoon with her (even though she dragged me grocery shopping with her after we were finished), and she got to see what fun stuff I get to do when it comes to blogging. We met up with the store manager, Karrie, and chatted about the merchandise in the store. Early Fall is now in all stores, as you can tell by the colors in the pictures. Lots of warm tones. Dots had lots of dip-dyed denim, strappy sandals and neons this summer, as many retailers across the country showcased.
While mom was trying stuff on, I was clowning around with her camera. If you look to the left, you can see her walking out of the fitting room in a black and white floral print dress. That is the same dress I got. They were $18 apiece, which is a steal.
