Whilst

I wore this a couple of weeks ago for a little shopping trip with Meg. When Roundabout is having their semi-annual sale is the only time I really shop there. I love couture as much as the next girl, but I can realistically only buy it when it's somewhere along the lines of 90% off, so secondhand and deeply discounted is how I shop.

I was good and only got one dress, a silk wrap in a watercolor kind of print by an Italian designer, out the door for just over $100. It's for an upcoming wedding and therefore completely justifiable.

  4. I want to talk about this outfit but I'm really stuck on the idea of a couture dress for $100. I mean, seriously?! How is that possible? I'm officially dying to see that dress. Not to say that this one isn't lovely, too, because it is; the black and white is right up my street and I'm pretty much convinced that those sparkly sandals would go with anything and look perfect, because sparkle is a neutral as much as leopard is ;)
    xox,

  5. I can't wait to see the dress you picked up (it sounds really lovely and I'm amazed at the price!), as much as I love this little black number that you're sporting.
