Marianne: Dolla (no holla).

I can't be the only one out there. Come on, how many of you, when complimented on something in your wardrobe, can't help but blurt out "I got it for a crazy deal!"

I got this dress for $.99 on eBay. You read that right. It's BCBG and looks like it's never been worn. I think it's pretty old, based on the BCBG Paris label, but I don't care. It is super comfortable and the print is fun. I bought it on a complete whim. A One Dollar Whim.
I wore it during last weeks cold spell with boots and a sweater, but it has a cute sleeve detail I can't wait to show you in another post.
It's a little shapeless through the waist, but for $.99, I'll take it. RIGHT?
dress: BCBG (vintage, but BCBG makes lots of fun printed dresses)
wrap sweater: Product (similar here)
boots: Frye Lisa (similar here)


  1. Where did everyone go? Anyway, I think it's cute! And a bargain!

  2. I laughed, 'cause I have a terrible habit of announcing my sale finessing whenever anyone notes what I'm wearing! But .99 is totally worth a shout-out! I like the print- feels kinda Marimekko-y.

    I felt guilty recently when I scored an anthropologie skirt I had been desperately desiring for a mere $7...

  3. OMG, I love that print. If you ever get tired of it, please let me have first dibs.

    Telling people how much I paid for something is kind of a bad habit of mine. But I kind of have a reputation among my friends for being able to find really good deals and so now I kind of HAVE to tell them or they'll think I've lost my mojo.
