the splurge (click on photo for details)

the steal (click on photo for details)

i am on a self imposed shopping ban for the rest of october (unless i NEED something from this event). so a couple of my twitter bff’s and i formed a “no shopping” support group. um, so far we are failing. i am still obsessed with chevron zigzag print so when i saw this dress, i HAD to have it. luckily i bought it right before i made the promise of no more shopping.

    I actually love the Steal even more, bet you will look amazing in this Chevron stripe and the color combination. OK, no more shopping for a while!!! Course, I need to adhere to my own stop shop regimen!

    I like the steal, but I think the splurge is fantastic. I love the bold zig-zag and the cut of the sleeves. I think the reverse view is even better as the cut of the dress looks to be more defined. Cool.

    I’ve absolutely been searching for a dress like this! I found one at my favorite local boutique but it was teeny-tiny and they said the company that made it was completely sold out! So excited you’ve located a similar style! ๐Ÿ™‚
