On a Mission

by Meghann on June 25, 2011

Trying to find a last minute dress for a wedding is tough.

Trying to find one in a small town is even tougher.

Titusville has two ‘malls’ (and I use the term ‘malls’ very loosely). One has a JcPennys, the other has a Sears and neither rarely has anything worthwhile. What is it about small towns that screams small selection at retail stores?

Still, my Mom and I were on a mission – to find her a dress for the wedding today.

First stop: JcPennys

  • Total time: 5 minutes
  • Outfits tried on: 0

Second stop: Sears

  • Total time: 10 minutes
  • Outfits Tried on: 0

Third Stop: Target

  • Total time: 45 minutes
  • OUtfits tried on: 6

Ladies and Gentlemen… We Have a Winner!


Doesn’t my Mom look good?!?! Ow. Ow. πŸ˜‰

Mission complete.

Seriously, when you live in a small town, Target really is the best option. Heck, Target is the best option in big towns too. I <3 Target. πŸ™‚

We celebrated out dress victory with subs from Publix.


I ordered my favorite: Salsalito Turkey with all the veggies on wheat with spicy mustard.


nom nom nom


It’s wedding time!

Oh, I should probably share my dress too.


I bet you can’t guess where it’s from? πŸ˜‰

Literally just came back from last minute wedding dress shopping too! But, I have buyer’s remorse.

I love that dress! I’m looking for something similar for a wedding in July … maybe I just need to hit up Target πŸ™‚ I’m really tall, though, so sometimes I don’t have the best luck.

Target rocks…especially when you want something stylish but are on the budget. Some of my favorite workout pieces have come from there as well as dresses.

Have fun at the wedding!

I still think it’s funny how you call Titusville a small town and it has a Sears, JC Penny, grocery stores, and restaurants! My town has 5 stop lights, and our only drive thru is the bank!

25 Alice June 25, 2011 at 10:31 pm

I was going to say the same thing. A town big enough for a Target, let alone a JCPenny and Sears is not that small. It’s all relative. I live in Iowa, in one of the bigger “cities” in the state and we really don’t have that much more than “small town” Titusville.

That said great dresses!

26 Elise June 26, 2011 at 4:14 am

Same reaction here! My hometown in southern Oklahoma has a population of 3,000 and nary a chain store of any kind. And it’s the largest town in our entire county, which has a population just shy of 10,000. The nearest malls and Wal-Mart are thirty miles away, minimum.

27 Amanda June 25, 2011 at 10:40 pm

Target is my go-to store for so many things!!

I always find the best stuff at Target too! I prefer it to many of the big city stores at the multiple malls surrounding my apartment. Your mom’s dress is so cute!

Love the dress on you!! I get what you are saying about small town malls – I live in Lake City…we have a “mall” – the 2 main stores are JC Penny and Belks…there are small store in between – but…….ya know?? They did just resently trade the Goody’s for a TJMaxx and that can be ‘money’ from time to time….love some TJMaxx πŸ™‚ But it’s hit or miss. We have yet to get a target, I hear we are getting one – but they have been saying that for a while…we do have good ol’ walmart. Your mom’s dress looks great!!
