Dillard’s Now Sells Shabby Chic Brand Clothing (And I Didn’t Know About It)
June 7, 2020
While browsing Dillard’s website to see what is new and trendy in their store, I discovered Dillard’s has new brands for sale in their store. In addition to the brands they already sell, such as Free People, Calvin Klein, Lauren Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and MICHAEL Michael Kors, they added Ted Baker and Shabby Chic. I already knew Dillard’s sells Ted Baker clothes, shoes, accessories, and bedding, but Shabby Chic was new.
I’m a fan of the Shabby Chic home decor style and, even though I know I don’t want my home to be decorated completely in a shabby chic style, I would like to incorporate some shabby chic into my home. I own one of Rachel Ashwell’s books and planned to buy more before I became sidetracked from buying home decor books and focused my money on buying other things. I love the furniture as well as the bedding in the Simply Shabby Chic collaboration collection from Target. But never have I heard of Shabby Chic clothing!After clicking around online I discovered that Rachel Ashwell’s website, shabbychic.com, sells not only home decor and furniture but clothing as well. The clothing ranges from dresses in a variety of lengths, shorts, shirts, skirts, jumpsuits, and pants. There is also sleepwear as well. They are in a variety of fabrics, patterns, designs, but they look like they are light weight fabrics, pastels, and feature feminine touches. The clothes remind me of Free People’s clothing except these are more in keeping with the Shabby Chic look and aesthetic.
The collection currently on Dillard’s website is not as large as on the Shabby Chic website. As of June 2020, there are 14 pieces on Dillard’s and some are permanently reduced. The size range is extra small to extra large with the extra small being scaled as an equivalent to size 0-2 while the extra large is scaled as an equivalent to size 14. The clothing on the website are also available on the Shabby Chic website.
I really like the style of the Shabby Chic apparel. It looks like something I would enjoy wearing during the spring and summer time (Or fall if I style it right) and I might fit into some of the clothes. I normally wear a large or extra large in Free People, but there are some brands I cannot wear because the extra larges are too small to fit my chest. I’m not sure how loose the Shabby Chic apparel is, but I hope to look for it and try it on in store at Dillard’s, whenever they will allow shoppers to try on clothing in store again.
As for the price, the price of the Shabby Chic is around the same price range as Free People’s clothing. Even though some of the clothing on Dillard’s and the Shabby Chic website are reduced, they are still pretty pricey with dresses sale prices over $100 USD. Because of this, I’m not ready to buy something online just to try on and then return to the store without seeing the clothing in store first.
