Never underestimate the power of a basic black dress, and an inexpensive one at that. I found this dress on Asos during their black Friday sale, and after the discount, it ended up being twenty seven dollars. That allowed me to splurge on other things, including these Isabel Marant berry boots that I'd been after for months. Unfortunately, they were not on sale. I'm almost positive that they wouldn't have made it to that point, as it seems to be a pretty popular style. Or maybe that's me justifying paying full price. Boo.
