Modcloth Sale and my "Bourge Problem"

Modcloth is currently having a "super secret sale" with the coupon code, "Stay Classy."  I'm pretty sure with a password like that, they are appealing to a certain demographic that I well, am a part of (women or cross dressing men who adore Will Ferrell in circa 1970's clothes).

Anyway, I misread the instructions this morning for the sale and thought it was for the whole site.  I promptly fell in love with the dress below before I realized it was full price.  Now I'm in love with a dress that I can wear without a sweater, that would be perfect for summer for church, the office and evenings in DC after work, but I've got to save money for a Galapagos Island cruise that I'm taking next month.  So, no dress for me, even though I really, really want it. 

Wait, I've totally defined a "bourgeoisie problem."
Yeah, don't feel sorry for me and my "bourge dilemma."  I'm suffering from unrequited love, but I guess seeing blue footed boobies is more of a priority.  Besides, if it's anything like the boots I was enamored with in January, the dress probably won't fit right anyway.        

Here's the link

LOVE that dress.
And now I know about the sale. Time to go see what damage I can do.

There's another dress on the site I would like in my closet, but I'm feeling a little stressed about the Ecuador trip (the Galapagos Islands are expensive!) so no dress for me. Plus, the other one is more of a early spring/fall/winter dress. It's not a summer dress.

That is one cute dress. I hate to rub it in, but it would look very nice on you with the color of your hair.

What, no men's styles, how sexist! haha. Cool dress, but always choose boobies when it is an option is my credo.

Oh Steve . . .

Anyway if it makes you feel any better my last online fashion purchase was extremely underwhelming.

Steve- I smiled.

Bren-Yes, the color goes great with my skin tone too... as I'm not a "true-ginger" according to South Park. Maybe later on this summer, I'll do it. We'll see.
