This started out as an Office-wear outfit. I found a lovely grey shift dress to feature, but I just couldn't bring myself to do it because of the price. I always try to balance the cost of the pieces I choose, but it's true that sometimes something costs more than you may be comfortable with. If you truly love something but it's just not in your budget, please let me know. I'm sure I could find an affordable choice for you that would be very similar.
