Dress: Leifsdottir, found at Nordstrom Rack
Shoes: Urban Outfitters
This dress is my best Nordstrom Rack find ever. Some of you Anthropologie fans may recognize this dress from a couple years ago. I can’t remember the name Anthropologie gave it, but I’m pretty sure its original price was $395. I fell in love with it even though I knew I could never afford it, even on sale. Plus, it sold out on the site at the regular price.
Well, about six months or so after I saw it on the Anthropologie website, I walked into Nordstrom Rack and discovered it in the clearance section, marked way down. And it gets better: it also had one of those “extra 60% off” or “extra 75% off” stickers on the tag, so I ended up paying about $35 including the sales tax.
I usually wear this dress on special occasions. I wore it to our friends’ Mardi Gras themed wedding last year, and I wore it for Mother’s Day brunch this year. I tend to save it for occasions because it’s so nice and I’m afraid of damaging it, but I think I should wear it more often. I like how adding the black belt makes it seem a little more casual.
