Giveaway: Dress Barn Straw Tote Promotion (2 Winners) [CLOSED]

Recently, I was invited to shop at my local DressBarn. Since it is located where I normally do not need to go to run errands, I have never visited before. I had no expectations about what I would find . . . well, aside from dresses. However, I was hoping to find one or two things I could wear during the BlogHer convention this year.

I was very pleasantly surprised when I walked into the store. All the women's fashions, both casual and dressy, had an elegance to them. Many of the pieces had embellishments on them, which really is not my style, but there were more than enough things that did suit my taste. I saw a lot of basic must-haves for the summer months, such as lightweight tees, bermuda-length shorts and capris, but I do think DressBarn is the place to go if you need to dress nicely for work or an evening out. I found a beautiful top that I cannot wait to show off at one of the BlogHer events in August. Oh, and did I mention they have shoes and purses too?

For a limited time, DressBarn is giving away one of these brightly colored roomy straw totes with each purchase of $100 or more . . .

This DressBarn Summer Tote promotion continues while supplies last. To help you out with your summer wardrobe, here is a printable coupon for 20% off one regularly priced item from DressBarn. Hurry! It expires 6/30/10.
