Remember my last post when I mentioned how new-to-you photographer Carroll and I created photo magic in Dumbo. Well, this is the magic I was talking about. Let's take a stroll and embrace all this color shall we!
Residents of New York City, if you have not yet been to the vibrant long stretch of the BQE yet, let this post be the nudge to get you there!
A while back Zara was selling similar eye dresses, and I didn't get it for whatever reason (aka probably broke) - then the dress sold out. It gave me the worst buyer's remorse. After that I spent many unproductive afternoons searching on poshmark, ebay, even craigslist with no luck. As a last resort, I took a screen shot of the dress and prayed to the Google-Image-Search gods that something similar would pop up. After scanning a few search pages, finally, FINALLY, an exact knock off was found by the Chinese fast-fashion (and knock-off king) brand Choies.
Unfortunately, not all things are that easy. Choies fudged up my shipping address and it took a good month to finally, FINALLY, have it delivered. Was it worth the wait, for $15 - yes. Will I ever pass up a heart-stopping purchase like that again? No way jose! Learned my lesson the hard way and saved up some cash for future rainy day purchases.
So, you better believe after all that hassle there would be a dedicated post to the dress I found (and love!!) and Choies horrible customer service.
