I. Die. Over this dress.
I stopped into Zara this weekend for the first time in a while, and I almost couldn’t believe it when I spotted this dress — incredibly close to a Chloe design from several seasons ago, and $79! I bought it without even trying it on — the line for dressing rooms was around the whole store, so I just crossed my fingers and took it home.
And to my incredible relief, it fit like a glove. I would believe this dress cost ten times as much as it actually did, and I’m pretty sure I’ll be wearing it to one of our upcoming weddings this summer.
When people compliment me on something I got a great deal on, I always feel the need to tell them exactly how much I paid for it. Do you guys do this too? If someone compliments one of my Forever 21 rings or necklaces, I always tell them that it cost $5 or $10. But when I’m wearing something expensive, sometimes I get kind of embarrassed to admit it. I feel like it’s more fun to brag about something that looks expensive but isn’t, and be understated about the things you actually paid a lot for.
