Dress-Epinion?

June 10, 2008


Eluxury

I wish there were an Epinion for dresses, so I can make more informed purchase decisions.

 

Like this Thakoon dress that I fell in love with at Shopbop, then I found out Eluxury has it too, but the picture there made the dress look sagging.

 

Which of these two pictures reflects how the dress looks in reality? I’m not sure.

 

But I do know if something doesn’t look right, it usually isn’t.  Everytime I try to be a little optimistic about the situation, I’ll end up with a bad purchase.

 

Hmmm, doesn’t that sound kind of familiar…

 

Bags, shoes, skirts…are on sale at Marni’s virtual store.  Somehow this candy-colored patent leather shopping bag ($1100 to $770) looks so appetizing! 

Also take a look at the Burberry online sale, there’re some wearable items like the blue sateen scuba dress (from $1695 to $849) from Burberry Prorsum. I personally think this Taffetta Dress (from $950 to $599) is a pretty good deal.

Don’t let this Donna Karan Collection Plunge V-neck Dress get away!! It’s a return (yes it was sold out last week), most likely only one available for purchase, in size Small. The original price was $1295, now it’s $769.  Good deal.  The ratio between exposed and unexposed area is just right 🙂

 

Also want to tell you guys about the Brian Atwood Slingback in Aqua at footcandyshoes.com.  It’s been on sale for a while (from $825 to $300) and is still available in size 7. If you have the guts to walk in these 4.75″heels, go ahead and grab them!

The Zac Posen Sunset Silk Dress became on sale this morning from $1500 to $1049. I love its Impressionist style, Zac Posen is such a genius!

Max Mara Corsaro Skirt is on further discount at $159. This skirt has been sold out (and returned) several times already – I’ve watched it disappear and reappear in my price alert emails.  Several different sizes are avaialbe at this moment, which makes me think there’s got to be something wrong with this skirt, otherwise why would all these people return it?

Is This The New Low?

June 3, 2008

I just saw this on Shopbop today.

Is this how low it gets these days? I can only imagine what my mom will say when she sees it.
