From Winter Parkas to Shorts

When the temperature hits 50 on the bank sign here in Iowa, we do not hesitate for one tiny second to go from this:

to this:

spring shorts

But are you prepared?

Other than mentally ready to  shed the layers and layers of organic cotton, denim, wool and fleece you’ve grown accustom to assembling day after day for what seems like an eternity now, is your closet ready?

This week, we are celebrating everything that is SHORTS.

All of our locations have an abundance of trendy, new to you shorts at prices that will allow you to get all of your favorite brands for far less than you’d pay at the mall.

Got $20?

I think it’s safe to say that you could pick up 2-4 pairs of name-brand shorts for just that and nothing more.

SO …

Go get your spray tan on and head into Stuff!

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!

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
