I Shall Only Buy Pieces I Truly Love

For one who does not make New Year's Resolutions, here is my second aim for the year. I have dreamed of owning a dress by Charles Anastase for many years but could not justify the cost to myself. Finally, I found a piece that was (almost) in my price range. Only to discover upon it's arrival, a missing belt and a hole in the sleeve. My quest continues.

  12. Ugh gutted! It's such a beautiful design as well-- I love the rouching at the front neckline...just beautiful. But hey, I guess you've got to see it as being meant to be - there's a better dress around the corner!
