I've been shopping for a dress to wear to my cousin's wedding for ages. I've already been complaining that everything I like is purple, but when I found this dress I couldn't resist. At first, I just wanted to know the designer & size because the tag was missing. The price tag said the dress was still $100 and the rack where I found it had it slated for a mere 20% discount, not enough to persuade me, despite the perfect fit. When the sales girl scanned the tag to see if she could find any more information I glanced at the screen and saw $48! For forty eight dollars plus tax, there was no way I was leaving this dress in the store. Now I have my very own designer dress (original price close to $400) in a bright orchid shade of purple. I think I can suck it up and rock it. I keep reminding myself that November anywhere other than San Antonio will need warmer accessories so for now I have it paired with polka dot tights, inspired by Joanna, and some ankle booties. What do you think? How else could I wear it?
