As you already know, I am beyond thrilled about Birmingham’s new outlet mall, the Shops of Grand River.

(And, might I add, I should TOTALLY be nominated as it’s best customer since I’ve been there FOUR times since it opened two weeks ago).

One of those trips was for a blogger event at the new dressbarn.

Now I must admit, at first I was a bit leery, because my impression of dressbarn had always been a bit…matronly.  However, I got on their website and looked around before I agreed to attend, and was really impressed with what I saw.

And when I arrived at their store, I was blown away!! My former impressions were exactly the opposite of what I found – their offerings were modern, hip, and young – and an added bonus of being quite affordable!  I was totally wishing I could wear their clothes right now – but I’m sure I’ll need some clothes after Noah arrives, so I’ll definitely be going back.

But I took some pictures for you…

My favorite items were the beautifully tailored and detailed sweaters – they were magnificent!!

They also had some fabulous holiday looks:

And they offered some great (and very NON Mom-Dreaded-Long-Butt) jeans – these in particular were Seven7 Jeans:

I was able to find myself some awesome jewelry, so I didn’t walk away empty-handed, despite my pregnant belly:


But needless to say, I was very impressed and surprised by their beautiful clothes and accessories – dressbarn will definitely be in my shopping rotation!

  1. Hi Rachel!

    I would love it if you would include me in yoru giveaway. I too once thought of Dressbarn as matronly….but I had never been in one until a friend of mine insisted (Her fav store…and she always has cute clothes). I too am now a believer. I would LOVE to win! I need a new look.

  2. As you know, I have been a long-time Dress Barn addict. Easily 95% of what I wear these days is from their store. And yes, their jewelry is AWESOME! And I love the way the jewelry selection always coordinates with their clothes, which makes my outfits look very pulled-together. I could never do that at other stores.

  3. OK, I’m intrigued. I still thought of dressbarn as… erm, “matronly”. But, I’ve got a (not-so-toned-and) fabulous new post-baby body and am in need of said non-mom-butt jeans. I’ll take a look at dressbarn for sure.

  4. I think we have this store, but I’ve never gone in there b/c I assumed, like you, that it was rather matronly. I mean “dressbarn” is not a very hip name. Good to hear that it has good stuff. I’ll have to try it out. :)

  5. Okay, don’t count this one for the contest but I seriously just hit submit and up came a blank white page and all it said was:

    You are posting comments too quickly. Slow down.

    Lol. So funny!

  6. okay….now I have to go check out dress barn…lol. would be awesome if I could go check it out with a gift card…. ;-) LOL. Thanks for another great contest!

  7. thank you, thank you, thank you. Making comments was so difficult! And it’s great that I can comment on Dress Barn which is my absolute favorite place to shop! Only I can’t wear a lot of their stuff because I am extra large and lots of their clothes stop at large. And in their women’s section it seems to start at 1XL which is too big!. But I always find something! They just opened a brand new store right around the corner. i think my debit card is in trouble!

  8. Those sweaters are GORGEOUS! I love the capped sleeve sweater on the top. I have so many long sleeved tees that would go well underneath it. So cute!!

  9. I love DressBarn because their clothes are actually cut for my figure! Although I wish they had a better name so I didn’t have to shop at a “barn.”

  10. I have only been to Dressbarn once so far, but I loved their selection of clothes! I found several items I just had to have and at great prices!

  11. My, my, my! I love that gray sweater with the bow. Perfect for this time of year — just gorgeous! Thanks so much for the chance! :)

  12. Thank you for the giveaway. There is a Dressbarn in town and I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve never been there (yet!)

  16. Oh, I would love to win this because I am really in need of something new and special to wear over the Christmas holidays! I don’t have a big wardrobe, and have attended 2 baby showers in the last 2 weeks, and it was hard trying to make my few pieces of clothing look “different.” Haven’t been to Dress Barn in a while, but always liked their clothes. Thanks for the giveaway!

  17. I never thought of shopping at dress barn but after seeing your pictures I think it’s somewhere I’ll shop in the future.

  18. I’d like to win this to give to a friend for Christmas! She lives near a Dress Barn and is always raving about their clothes :)
