What Would You Pay? Boudoir-Inspired Dress

Be sure to check out last week's print hat. Those of you who didn't hate it said you'd pay $40 to $70 for it, but guessed it really cost around $150. See how much it really cost.

Most lingerie-inspired slip dresses look more like nighties than dresses. They aren't anything I could bring myself to consider wearing. This dress has the same airy feel of a nightie-style dress, but it actually looks like a dress. The color-block design gives the dress a stronger feel without losing the delicate feel. The plunging black V in front provides the sense of a plunging neckline without revealing too much skin.

The dress is 100 percent silk and fully lined with adjustable straps and zipper in the back. (Hint: the impeccable quality of material and craftsmanship sets the price a little higher). Best of all, this dress has classic style. It's a slip dress you'll be able to slip into for a while. Also, in ranges from size 00 to size 16. It's nice to see a pretty piece like this sized above a 10 or 12.

Next Tuesday I will announce on Twitter and Facebook (as well as in this post) where this is from and how much it costs. If you know where this is from, DON'T tell everyone and spoil the fun. The actual cost will skew everyone's answers. Until then, what would you pay for this dress?

Update: This dress is from Banana Republic and costs $150.

I would probably pay $80 for the dress. I don't really spend much on clothing, but it looks really cute, and I think with a jacket (and maybe a little length) it would be cute for a wedding.

I'll guess it costs $200. I seem to be hit and miss with my guesses :)
