I fell in love with this dress months ago while shopping in the Ted Baker store. When I tried it on, I felt amazing. It was perfect in every way- the length didn't look weird on me like other midi dresses do, and it had lace, scallops, and a bow belt. I remember flipping over the skirt in the dressing room, trying to find the materials tag, praying 'please don't be silk', and being met with a confirmation that this dress was vegan friendly.
I have a problem where I grab things I like and try them on without looking at the price tag, and it's quite harmful. Already in love, I checked the tag and was met with a glaring price at nearly $400. Damn. It was hard leaving the dress there that day, and I didn't forget about it. When I found it on sale last week, it was almost too good to be true. Not sure where I'll wear it, but the feeling I get when I put it on is too good to pass up.
FYI, Ted Baker is actually surprisingly vegan-friendly, and it's where I got the fabric clutch I paired with the dress. This dress doesn't need much accessorization, so I just added a glass-pearl bracelet, neutral heels, a clutch in a coordinating color, and that was it!
