Try-on Session: Fred Meyer's new clothing line Dip

Have you seen Fred Meyer/Kroger's new clothing line Dip? I've been intrigued ever since it hit the shelves late this summer. The line is insanely affordable and has a lot of trendy pieces and wardrobe staples. I squeezed in a try-on session before grocery shopping last week, because sometimes ya gotta do something fun for an incentive before wandering the grocery aisles. 

Tops

Dip has some really cute tops. The plaid blouse had a great sleeve detail. The peplum was just in the front so the volume in the waist area wasn't too much, and the sleeves were really fun. 
Can you tell that these sleeves were a little too crazy for me?

Dresses

The slightly longer hem on this shirt dress was really stylish and different. 
The turtleneck sweater dress is something I never would have thought to try, but it was really cozy and surprisingly cute!

Sweaters


I loved the tie-waist detail on this sweater!

What Dip does well: 
  • Great basics: tees, tanks, and tunics perfect for leggings in solid colors and patterns
  • Versatile color palette, I could see myself wearing all of the colors
  • On-trend and modern silhouettes and cuts 
  • Cardigans! Their cardigans were hands down my favorite items. 
  • The price point is pretty fantastic- pretty much everything pictured was $20 or below. There was also a sale rack in the section with even better deals. 
Things to be aware of:
  • At a price point like this it's not surprising that the fabric quality is not the best. For example, the shape of the grey dress is lovely but the fabric was next-level clingy. I found the sweater fabric to be nice, though. 
  • Pants run very small. I usually wear size 8-10 and the 10 was quite a bit too small for me. 
  • Sizes of basics were really picked over, so if you want black leggings keep an eye out for a new shipment!
"Would Buy" favorites:
  • Grey top with lacy hem
  • checked shirt dress 
  • red boyfriend cardigan
  • pink chunky knit cardigan

 Do you like shopping for clothing at grocery stores from time to time, or are you strictly a brand name or mall person? 
I'm thinking I'll try out the Dip athletic line next- let me know if you'd be interested in another try-on sesh post!

  7. Love that pink top. I would totally buy my clothes from the grocery store. I did buy some jelly flats from Krogers once. I have also got a scarf from there as well.
