The Horror: Highway Robbery
peach dress is? You can pre-order it now at Nordstrom for $695. $695! This looks like one of Victoria's Secret's terry cloth cover-ups. It's not even made of silk; it's polyester! The cut is beachy and loose; it by no means involves the sharp tailoring I like in designer clothing. The label is St. John, but that wouldn't get me to think about forking over more than $50 for this dress either. If I were to spend nearly $700 on a dress (hahahaha!), Alexander McQueen has a finely tailored wool dress on sale for $674. This feels like nothing more than practicing Chanel's maxim that rich people will buy things because they are expensive.
