ladydove dress



A few months ago I saw an orange dress in Anthropologie. I loved that orange dress. I tried it on; it fit perfectly. But I couldn't bring myself to spend $100 on a dress made in China. Why is Anthropologie so expensive and of such poor quality? Quelle douleur! So I forwent this purchase and forgot about it. Then I discovered this beautiful orange dress on Etsy, and bought it for myself for Christmas. It is handmade by a crafter from Oregon. Isn't it a beauty. You can check out her shop on Etsy www.etsy.com.

Oh what a great story, I feel you on the Anthro, I buy only on sale, and it has to be a killer sale, b/c I just don't think they are worth it, but for an etsy buy, wow, and it is probs better quality and gee, what a great story!
