Steal: DVF wrap dress at the Intermix Warehouse Sale

Savings, shmavings. I couldn't stay away from the Intermix Warehouse Sale. I had some time to spare yesterday between leaving work and meeting some girlfriends for dinner so I stopped by the Metropolitan Pavillion and popped my DVF wrapdress cherry by buying this cutie:

This wrap dress is from Diane Von Furstenberg's superhero-inspired cruise collection. It's called the wonder woman wrap dress, and if you look closely you'll see stars and flourishes that'll remind you of the superhero. This dress retails at $385 but I was able to get for—are you ready for this—just $79!!! I was so thrilled. I was not-so-thrilled that I fit into a size 2 perfectly (gasp!) but whatever. (Edit: I just realized, thanks to the Anonymous comment, that this sentence was a douche-y thing to say. Let me clarify that I only feel that a size 2 is not a good size for me because I am very, very, very short girl with small bones. Size 2 is perfect on all non-munchkins not named Celine.) Next week, I resolve to start taking bikram classes to resolve the chunkiness matter. But today, I am just super happy I got this awesome bargain!

Spotted at the Intermix Warehouse Sale: a small boned Asian chick the same size as me walking off with an Hervé Léger. Grrrrr ... I had crazy shopping envy. I only saw one on the rack that looked like a tangle of bandages for about $800 so I guess if I'd seen the dress first I wouldn't have bought it ... or would I? Arrrrrgh. Next Intermix Warehouse Sale, I am so lining up on the first day to get mine!

Anonymous, sorry you're right, size 2 is not chunky, it's just big for me because I'm barely 5 feet tall!

Tin OMG Herve Leger for $399! That's CRAZY. I want :-(

OMG Cel, you have the GREATEST finds in NY! That wrap dress is tdf. I am still waiting for the right DVF to surrender my DVF virginity to! Hahaha.

Herve Leger is divine. I would only dream to have one. Need to diet first.

How come everything is SO CHEAP THERE?! Huhuhu.

The Chiconomist Celine said...

Jacqs, everything is cheap because YOU NEED TO BE HERE. Hehehe. About the Herve Leger, I guess you're right, I have no right to be in one until I am in great shape!

I was talking about me dieting you silly SILLY woman!

You are skinny as hell! Delusional!! Tell me someone I know who told you that you are gaining weight??!!!

$79!! That's awesome!! x x

Don't worry, the size 2 is tight on me too -- I wonder if it's just the way this style is cut....I don't like the closure on this dress though, it's difficult to figure out how it's used....

The Chiconomist Celine said...

Jacqui - basta I am! I have to start being good. I quit the gym so I get no exercise ... have to take dance classes or yoga or something!! Tumatanda na tayo, no, have to fight the flabby underarm fat! Hehehe.

Sonu - you just have to put the part of the belt that goes around your back a couple of times through that hook-type thing. I haven't worn it out yet so I don't know if it really works at keeping the dress closed snug ...
