I have been so excited to blog about this Missoni shift dress for quite some time now! When I found it on the racks during a routine shopping trip, I got the "SCORE" feeling that I get every now and then when I know I've come across resale gold (insert heart eye emoji). Here's my struggle with these pieces though-- while I hardly ever decide not to buy pieces like this when I find them, I always worry that I won't be able to sell them. I never price these items for more than they are worth as a second hand designer item, but I do find that often times my customers are looking so hard for a mega bargain, that my incredible designer pieces go to waste...or at least get over looked. I think that my shop is unique in that while I do consistently offer what I call "bread and butter" pieces (brands like J.Crew, Anthropologie, Madewell, Free People)--basically, good solid mall brands, I also consistently offer great high-end designer pieces like Chanel, Burberry, Tory Burch, Escada, Prada, Missoni, Dolce & Gabbana, etc. that, sometimes, are still a bargain even if their price tag is over $50. I think what I want people to know about shopping resale is that these things can  be investment pieces that you really cherish. I have to constantly remind myself that these special pieces are worth spending a little more on, AND that something this top notch can still be a bargain even if it isn't less than $20.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                                 
Here's a little more info about this stunner: 
                                                                                                                                              
-It is Cotton + Polyamide + Spandex blend
-It is marked a size 8 but should work for most size Smalls to Mediums. It measures 18.5" pit to pit and it is 33" long
-It is in excellent condition; no flaws to note! (Really it seems like someone just took the tags off and never wore it...)
-This dress was originally sold for $545, but we are selling it for just $95...you save $450!!
-I love this dress for so many reasons. It is a shift dress (thank you, Jesus for dresses that don't touch our bodies). It has a sweet exposed zipper in the back. It gives a beautifully updated nod to the best mod/retro dresses from the 60's. It is great on its own, but would look smashing with a jacket over it or a collared shirt under it! And the colors are just what the doctor ordered for this Spring and Summer.                                                                                                                                                                                                
                                                                                                                                                 
This is a dress you'll wear over and over and I am certain it comes with lots of compliments. I love dresses that look and feel easy to wear. It is extremely well made and pretty darn timeless in style. I really don't think you can go wrong with this one. I just lowered the price from $145 to $95, so get it while you can!          
                                                                                                                                                                                                                              If you have more questions about this dress please feel free to reach out to me on instagram at @Bethanystylepage, or shoot me an email at Bethany@Bethanysstyleaisle.com!
