See by Chloe patchwork print dress and coat
Michael Kors Calista bag
I wore the above See by Chloe patchwork print dress last Monday and the Friday before that. This piece haunted me after it went on sale and sold out. The retail was insane. I cannot fathom how/why they get away with such obscene pricing. I love the dresses and prints but they're priced in an even more inflated way than retail MBMJ. It's Anna Sui caliber pricing! Which means that even on sale I cannot afford it.
I finally tracked one down on ebay and am so glad I waited. I am also glad that it seems like SbC clothing has flown under the radar of counterfeiters. Unlike MBMJ or Anna Sui, when I find a deal on ebay, I don't have to weigh the possibility that it is fake. Even if I won't get to wear this dress a lot, it is the kind of visually interesting dress I hope to wear for years. And I saved a lot of money compared to the sale prices (Zappos' current sale price triples it!). It was an online only item for a lot of retailers so I didn't expect to find one marked down enough for me. Even if stocking patterns have not resumed what they were pre-recession, I am convinced yet again that everything eventually will go on sale. And if it doesn't then who needs it?! Anyway, when Chris saw me pair it with my many years old SbC coat, he made fun of me for being such a fangirl.
