Multicolor Print Maxi Dress, $41.99
I used to think that if I could get a pretty maxi dress for less, why bother spending money for an expensive dress. If you go for the cheaper ones, you´ll have more options in your closet; but if you buy the high-priced, you´ll have fewer. I´ve seen in many cases that once you place the expensive and the more affordable side-by-side, you could hardly pin point their price difference especially if their wearer carries the dress really well.
But this mentality changed after I gambled on a very gorgeous maxi dress which I couldn´t resist having in spite of it requiring an arm and a leg. The quality is superb and the feel of its material on my skin is priceless, not to mention it´s very beautiful. I realized that spending more on a dress is not about showing people that you´re wearing an expensive creation, it´s more about the experience. After all, you wouldn´t want to always tell people how much your dress costs or its brand even if they don´t have any idea. It´s just your gift to yourself.

But their cut and style are different. The Nicole Miller maxi dress skims your figure from the top down to the hips before subtly flaring for more rooms on the skirt, a side slit highlights your left leg. It boasts an all-over ruching and wildflower print.
