As soon as I spotted this dress in-store, it was one of those well-now-I'm-going-to-have-buy-that moments. Any detectable sarcasm is only on behalf of my wallet because I fell in love with everything about it. I love (love, love, love) the pattern and color palette–purple and black look so wonderfully moody together. The lace panels, cut-out back and well-positioned slit all were extras as far as I was concerned. I may not perfectly fit the Free People aesthetic, but I seriously and consistently adore their clothes.
