The Look For Less: “Dots vs. Macy’s Strapless Printed Maxi Dress”

I went on a day-trip to Washington, DC last week and visited the Macy’s store at Pentagon Centre Mall. I saw this American Rag Strapless Print Maxi Dress on the rack and said to myself, “Where have I seen this recently?”. It was then that it hit me that one of my frequently shopped stores, Dots, has a very similar style dress. Actually Dots had it first because I saw it in the store back in March and I shop the Macy’s site quite often and the American Rag style is just arriving on their site. So since I’m a bargain shopper, most of the time, I figured if some of my readers like this printed dress, why not get it for around $40 less:
