Layers Layers Layers

I don’t know about you, but this winter weather has me reeling …

January/February in Iowa, we’re usually dealing with 20 below zero wind chill (fahrenheit) and a high of 2 degrees for the day.

This year, it’s been as low as 12 … maybe once.

Earlier this week it was 64F. What the heck?

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind 6 more weeks of this Mr. Groundhog, but seriously, somebody better call Al Gore.

Global warming aside, weather of this nature can be a challenge when dressing to leave the house, but think of how much fun you can have with the layers!

I found some awesome inspiration that I wanted to share with you all in hopes to make your dressing a little easier and a whole lot more fun!

{all 3 p/c via urbanweeds }

and let’s not forget to layer the stylish men …

Feeling inspired to add a few layers?

I know, right?!

Best part is, all fall & winter items are 50% off at all Stuff Etc locations right now!  So you can stock up for hardly NOTHING on a few, or many, outstanding pieces this weekend and get to layering!

p.s. share some pics of your thrifty layering so that we may share with our fans

A Dress With Previous Experience

ex·pe·ri·ence  noun \ik-ˈspir-ē-ən(t)s\

something personally encountered, undergone, or lived through; : direct observation of or participation in events as a basis of knowledge and skill               ~ Webster Dictionary

Sooooo….thanks to the definition provided by good ol Webster, one can deduce that Stuff Etc’s fabulous selection of formal dresses with “previous experience” is a good thing!  Prom is right around the corner, and it’s never too soon to start looking for a dress that will be the perfect fit and color, not to mention, be completely different from all the other dresses in the room.

A prom dress is a right of passage for a high school girl!  I saved up my prom experience and only attended my Senior Year.  I can remember every detail, stitch, and the way the vibrant purple satin felt on my body and how proud I was of its individuality – there wasn’t another one like it in the room… and I bought it at a small consignment shop in my home town for less than $100.  We at Stuff Etc appreciate the value placed upon selecting the garment that will accentuate your best features for such a memorable evening.  Therefore, we are collecting from all five locations and hand-picking some of the best dresses you’ll be able to find in this area (consignors that get their dresses from Chicago boutiques for example) for our Prom Event coming in February. Click here for more details. We will also have new dresses available that we selected straight out of a 2011 Prom Magazine (like the blue one you see here) for only $89.99!

Purchasing a dress with previous experience, according to Webster,  means you are gaining a dress with knowledge and skill.  And a fashion savvy, economically conscience  girl like you will also appreciate  gaining such a unique, skilled dress at an amazing price.  Again, setting you apart from all the other girls that maxed out their parents plastic or spent collective months of their barely there, after school paychecks.

Join us for our boutique Prom Event in IOWA CITY, Sunday Feb. 6th and in CEDAR RAPIDS, Sunday Feb. 13th from 1-3pm.  Click here for more details. Try-on & purchase dresses, jewelry and other accessories.  Bid to win one of the FIVE featured dresses in the LIVE auction.  Enter to win awesome door prizes from our sponsors like a free limo, up-do, floral orders, and restaurants just to name a few.  Don’t miss out on one or both of these unique opportunities to score the perfect dress for your perfect day (each event will have completely different dresses).
