This AKA dress was a gift to myself for my birthday two years ago. I saw it in the window at Intermix and knew I had to have it. It was a bit of a splurge, but I have worn it many times since. I have belted it and worn it as a tunic. I have dressed it up and down. I have worn it in the winter and the summer. Overall, I have probably worn it at least 20 times and I plan to continue to wear it. When you find a piece that you are absolutely in love with, it is worth spending more. The cost per wear for this dress is well under 20 dollars. That makes it a much better deal than some dresses I have snagged last minute at Forever 21 at a “steal” for 30 bucks and only worn once. If it is something that you can wear again and again, go ahead and spend a bit more. It is worth it.
