Tales of Great Sales | The Nearly 95% Off Rachel Roy Dress

It is with great pleasure that I finally introduce this Tale of a Great Sale. This dress hung waiting, longingly, in my closet for months. It was too warm for velvet, so I waited impatiently for autumn to arrive. It’s finally time.

I found this Rachel Roy dress marked down from some $450 to — wait for it — $25.

It was covered in sale sticker after sale sticker, and I can tell you exactly why. This dress looks awful on the hanger. Like… so awful. And gigantic. It appears to be a huge velvet-and-pleat potato sack. This dress on a hanger makes you assume you’ll be swallowed by a velvet monster, and as it eats, you’ll pass through its pleated digestive track. My friend Sara was more than bewildered when I grabbed it off the sale rack; but since I’m always cold, I can’t turn a blind eye to a discounted velvet.

And so, without definitive proof, I can completely guarantee that this dress was marked down nearly 95 percent because it looks god-awful on a hanger.

I recently wore it to Saint Louis Fashion Week. Take a peek below.

Ah, what a difference a belt makes. Oh, and a body underneath. Moral to the story: TRY EVERYTHING ON. The end.
