Ann Taylor Revamped



I have to admit I have not stepped foot in an Ann Taylor store probably since Junior High. I am in Charlotte this week visiting my rents and my mom wanted to stop in today to show me a dress she liked. Boy was I pleasantly surprised. I think they are trying to revamp their image. They now have Kate Hudson as their model who I really like. They had some great neon stuff in the store for way better prices than most boutiques around town. I used to think AT was just for older women but I was proven wrong.

Both my mom and got this blouse, it is on sale plus you get an additional 30% percent off. I love navy blouses because they go with everything.


ok and does anyone think this model really looks exactly like Courtney from The Bachelor (Ben's Season)?? Just saying. Tell me you don't agree....

This is not a clear picture but I promise this blouse fits super well and looks cute.

I also picked up this dress.




And excuse my horrific roots in this picture. My hair needs to be colored bad! I thought the dress was super cute and such a great color. I figured I could dress it up or even wear it to church. I knew I had made the right decision when I saw Eva Longoria wearing the same dress!

A few other things I really liked:
Neon Marquis Stretch Bracelet, Lace Shirt, Riley Patent Strappy Sandels



Ann Taylor is rocking it this season.

GIRL!!! You can rock a sheath like nobody's business!!! That dress looks awesome on you! I'm afraid I'd need to wear it with jeans and add a belt so as not to look like a big piece of cotton candy!

I'm so glad you got the pink dress, I loved the IG pic of you in it. (sweetteabelle--I'm that stalker) I do agree that they have revamped their image. Lots more cute stuff and not just for older women. Have fun with your mom!

I was just in Ann Taylor yesterday and got a really cute/sexy black top. They really have upgraded their style to a hipper level!

Ann Taylor has been so great lately! I used to think of it as a store where my mom shopped but it's great go-to for work clothes this year.

Kara said...

I purchased a couple of sweaters and cardigans from AT this winter that I ended up wearing often. Your dress looks gorgeous!! Oh that model looks exactly like Courtney...that was my first reaction when I saw that pic. haha

Totally agree, they have really worked hard not to be an "old lady" store anymore...around christmas I got a freakin' amazing bracelet from there and there is so much I'm lovin' right now!

I stumbled into Ann Taylor around January and was amazed! I got a fabulous, light-weight orange/cream striped sweater with gold buttons. Looks like I need to make a trip back there soon.

Super cute! LOVE the dress. I bought an ostrich feather tank in there (all black that I wear with a white blazer-- soooo cute) that was $12 down from $135! What! :)
