OOTD-Tiers of Colors

Once upon a time, I fell in love with a dress that had pretty colors and a flowy hemline, but that evil price tag said we would never be friends:



I even tried it on as a possible birthday splurge, but it just wasn't true love when I saw it on my body.



But I couldn't get those tiers of colors out of my mind, so imagine my delight at finding an cute alternative at a fraction of the price:





I'll take it!! Have you ever lusted after something you saw online, but when you got up close and personal with it, discovered that some of the love instantly faded away. Sadly, that was the case with this dress and I was all set to love it because Diane von Furstenburg knows how to make a pretty dress with some wonderful color. Oh well, there will always be other dresses and this new number will keep me plenty happy this season.

What is one thing that you lusted over but never bought either because of price, not fitting your lifestyle or you waited too long to buy and it disappeared?
For me it was the Louis Vuitton Mini Lin. I loved the print and size of the bag, but when I rented it from Bag Borrow or Steal, I just knew it wasn't going to work. It was a black hole that made everything I put into it disappear and there were no side pockets which is a slight deal breaker for me when it comes to handbags.

Outfit Details:
Navy tiered dress- Tinley Road (available here in limited sizes, similar style here)
Gray/beige tribal print blazer- Forever 21 (newer version available here)
White handbag- Forever 21 (similar here, real deal designer version  available here and here in a smaller size)
Tan platforms- Miu Miu

  5. That was an awesome find! I so wanted this dress too but it NEVER went on sale and sold out so quickly. Saw it on a girl the other day and was a bit sad :) This alternative is awesome though!
