I didn’t know that Belk had a pilot collection for Suakoko Betty by Charlene Dunbar. I think they released it in the Spring. I’ve been so busy and I haven’t step foot in the mall in several months. By the time I realize they had this amazing crop of wax print ankara dresses at Belk, they were already marked down and sold out.
Nothing was left on Belk’s website either. So I had to hit up Ebay and low and behold someone was selling one for $33 dollars, New with Tag. I believe this dress was selling at Belk’s full retail for $168.00.  I didn’t hesitate, I did a best offer on it and won.  I love the dress even though it was 1 size to big, but I belted it and made the dress a little shorter and it worked out perfectly!  I still plan to add a burgundy band at the bottom to finish the dress off properly.  I’m going to use the excess fabric off the hemline to make a clutch, so watch out for that.
There are two more dresses I want in her collection and I’m sure they will pop up on Ebay eventually  but I’m glad I got at least one of them.
I actually made one clutches over the last few weeks and have another one in the works. I plan to do a blog post about them when I get a chance.  Both of which I repurpose from a plain clutch I found at Village Value and recovered it with a batik fabric and I plan to use the excess fabric from this dress for the second clutch.  So stay tuned for that. 

I hope you ladies have a wonderful Labor Day Holiday.  Stay Safe and Happy!
