Because I would be scheming and plotting to buy it, even at nearly $700. That perfect grass-green color! Of course, a is also an investment … this is from the always astounding (You must visit if you haven't already. Just be prepared to fall hopelessly in lust with at least one dress of unsurpassing beauty.)
I did once find a Courreges dress (in a Salvation Army, of all places). It was teeny, and stained, but still — a Courreges! I sold it for much, much less than $700, at a time when I was both anti-60s and broke. It's not one of the dresses I regret letting get away, though. I'm sure someone out there is giving it all the love and attention I wasn't able to. There are some other neglected dresses in my closet that should be put up for the same adoption, but I'm not willing to give them up quite yet. You never know when you might lose 20 lbs in a week or have to attend a black-tie gala three nights running. Right?
