Tory Burch Judi Contrast Print Dress ($425)

Since this has turned into a posting day filled with dresses, I thought that I would add one more.

I love this dress.  I love it so much that I just had to share it.  I love it so much that I searched online for three hours in the hopes of finding to comparable pieces for a 10th Commandment feature and could find nothing.  I was crushed.

So now I have shared my adoration, and my bitter disappointment.

    Love that! I almost bought it on Rue La La the other day for 1/3 of the price but just couldnt justify spending that kind of money, even at the discount.

    It was on RueLaLa? Damn. Now I need to take their daily emails out of my spam filter.

    If you really like it and you'll wear it a couple times a month, it's worth $400. I wouldn't spend that kind of money on something super trendy, but this dress is more of a high-quality wardrobe staple.

    I love it, too, but for that kind of money, I'd need to be able to wear it to work. Could I do that? In a (small) state Capitol?

    Betsy – I don't know what Belle would say, but this dress would be fine in my DC law office, which is likely more formal than a small state capitol. I'd pair it with a white or bright jacket for meetings and without a jacket for normal days at the office.
