So as you may have seen from my livetweeting and instragramming, my brother's graduation was a complete success. We all got dressed up (had to do some last-minute cardigan shopping, but life's life) in our nice suits and heels and dresses.
I finally got to wear an Urban Outfitter's dress that I bought a few months ago. It was one of those sale-rack dresses and then they had the half-off all sale items promotion--totally my thing. I basically refuse to buy anything not
on sale. The dress fit perfectly--except for that one small detail of the zipper being completely ripped and ruined. But I new it was love.
Urban was totally willing to give me an extra 10% off the dress because it was ripped...so I saved a couple more dollars there and then ran the dress straight over to the dry cleaner's, where they fixed the zipper in no time. So I guess the moral of this small story is that damaged material at a store may not be complete losses? The money I saved from the extra discount ended up covering what I spent to have it fixed at the cleaners. I'm glad I asked!
Anyway, what I loved about this dress was the high-low hem--I can't get enough of it these days. I think it is such a pretty effect, and it works great with both casual and more fancy dresses and skirts.
Here are a few of my favorites...
