So the story behind this dress is as follows: you know how the day after Christmas every single thing that was on sale just before Christmas is now marked down even further? So last year I happened to find the dress I'd been wanting but couldn't justify the $79 for on sale three days before Christmas for $49 (yes, I'm the strange girl that could tell you how much almost everything in her closet costs because she thrives on bargains). The day after ripping open all of my presents, while at the computer in my brand new dress and tights, I saw that this dress was now in clearance for $19. And with a 20% off coupon it was even cheaper. HOWEVER, and this is the kicker, it was only available two sizes bigger than my normal size and instead of shoving my debit card into my wallet, I still went for it. Full disclosure, the reviews did say to order a size up anyways, so I figured it was really only one size too big. I got it in the mail, put it on, and it's the best most versatile winter dress I own because it's a nightgown, day-in-the-library-during-finals dress, sit-in-front-of-the-fire-when-it's-20-degrees-outside-dress, and now a wear-with-your-skii-hat-that-makes-you-look-Russian dress.
