I picked this dress in a whim when Shanna said it was on clearance at Forever 21, (it is no longer available online but I saw it at my local store), I loved how she styled it, and it is such a simple yet versatile dress, you can dress it up or down, load it with accessories, pair it with comfy flats, or like me with pumps.
I know stores like Forever 21 carry more affordable versions of styles sold at pricier stores, a copycat version if you want to call them that; but considering that I am on a budget, and that I have a shopping obsession, I would much rather use the extra money on something else, specially since fashion is always changing; and we are always craving the next thing. Stores like this allow you to experiment and expand your closet, obviously there are things on which there is no compromising and you have to go for the real deal, but when fashion is involved if the shoe fits... buy the budget friendly version.

Excuse my not so stylish hair tie, I only noticed it when I looked at the pictures in my computer.
