After taking my search for a gown for February’s HRC Gala on the road (namely Atlanta), I was all too excited to hear what Belk buyer Hope Politis had to tell and show me recently: Belk Southpark has substantially increased its social dress department.
If you’re like me and rarely make it out of the shoe department (It’s disturbing how easily I’m distracted “Ooh … Frye boots. And sandals ….”), like me, you’ve been missing out on what Hope and her peeps started putting together earlier this year, just in time for prom season.
There’s just more: More price points, more styles, more designers including Tadashi Shoji, Jill Stuart, Ralph Lauren’s Lauren line and Jessica Simpson among others. I have to admit, J Simp’s dresses are surprisingly elegant — nothing about the blouson number with a beaded waist (right) screamed Jessica Simpson.
