I fell in love with this dress when it first came in to the store back before Christmas. But, at $298, I just couldn't justify the purchase, even with my employee discount. So, you can imagine my surprise and joy when I found one in February marked down to $39.95. It was a 4, and, though I could squeeze myself into it, I tracked down a 6 at the Louisville store and had them send it to me.
Knowing Ryan and I had tickets to the ballet at the end of March, I saved it for the occasion. I even got lucky with a day of 40-degree stormy weather, which meant tights wouldn't be an absolute necessity as they have been for time immemorial.
We had a lovely date night, trying out a new restaurant in our neighborhood, which we had been saving for the occasion as well. Some things are worth the wait.
