and this is where you think I am completely crazy...

... here's more Walmart stuff. Pretty cute, surprisingly. Have you ever bought clothing from Walmart, any feedback here? Because I could buy like all of these things combined for under $100. That would make me very happy.

The pink top is very much my style. I have picked up one or two things from walmart in the past, but my issue with buying things from there is that the price=quality. The clothes look very old/worn after just one or two washings and I can't justify something, even that cheap, if it isn't going to last.

Love them! I'm always shocked at what I find at places like Walmart.

One of my favorite sweaters is actually from KMART! No one ever believes me when I share the source.

I have purchased a few things at walmart in the past. There is sometimes an issue with quality so I tend to not put those items in the dryer and I realize it will only last a season or two. I would also try to stick with cleaner lines and more classic looks (over-embellishing can make something look cheap).

Love that black top!

I've bought lots of stuff from Wal-Mart. I tend to buy work-out clothes there, they sometimes have a pretty good selection. I also will often buy plain, cheap t-shirts from there... sometimes for working out, and also for wearing around the house on days that I know I won't be going outside at all. With a toddler, a lot of my clothes get stained/ruined pretty quickly, so for a day at home with my toddler an $8 t-shirt fits the bill nicely. I can't tell you how many of those $8 t-shirts I've thrown out in the past two years because they were covered in stains that I couldn't get out.

But like Cassie said, Wal-Mart clothes are often not great quality. So yes, try to wash as little as possible and avoid the dryer for sure. And don't expect them to last much longer than a year.

Love the grey top and last one of the bunch. I just happen to be taking a solo trip to Super Wal right now (hubby working from home), so I think I might have to browse a bit past just paper towels and toddler undies.

I have a few things from Walmart (both online and from the store). Granted, the quality isn't the greatest, but sometimes I just want a top, dress, etc. that will last me a season, so it works great for that. Online they carry a lot of items and brands they don't offer in stores. Also, their selection from store to store varies greatly!! Lastly, I have found that I like items much more in person than online since their pictures never do an item justice.

VERY cute stuff you showed! Funny you ask..I'm actually wearing a cute grey courderoy blazer i got from Wal-Mart a few years ago. the quality is great and the price was just right. I love fashion, but I also love a good deal every now and then!

I've found Walmart to be a toss up. I've bought close I absolutely LOVE there and my mom and sisters are always wearing cute clothes from Walmart. But, I've also gotten cheap, lousy clothes there, too. I think you just have to feel the fabric and make sure it's got good construction and doesn't feel flimsy.

I've had pretty good luck at Walmart with basic things (V-neck t-shirts and athletic wear, anyone?). Anything beyond that, it's pretty hit-and-miss.

just found your blog, I love it! every once in a while I do find little treasures@ Walmart. all of the pieces you show here I would wear and I might have to track down.

Awww yeah, you're jumping on the Walmart bandwagon! Hee hee. Um, I love that gray jacket you posted-super cute. I bought a tank from WM last summer and it was definitely a one wash-one wear type of situation. Okay, maybe a few more wears than that, but not many. You definitely get what you pay for.

I've bought a couple things from WalMart. My experience has been that they're good at first, but the fabrics are really rough and they loose shape pretty quickly. But sometimes they're at just the right price point for a quick buy! :)

I've gotten a few things there, mostly workout stuff. Quality is an issue (not as good as Target by any stretch of the imagination - I swear by Mossimo stretch t-shirts, those are amazing). I have noticed an improvement in style and selection in the past year or two. Maybe the quality will improve as well. Point being, I'm not above buying something at Walmart :o)
