This dress feel special on me and it took awhile to figure out what it was. I wear it again today and realize it is the color that mach my skin tone perfectly. For me it doesn't mater how much it cost or brand ,if it calls my name when I try it on so its a done deal . I like the fact that it is a seasonal dress,I can add on any garment to make it appropriate to any season . Surprisingly I brought the dress from Forever XXI even though I'm way pass 21. I would love to hear some stories and tricks on how you shop.
