"Economic stimulus check" means "buy pretty dresses from a possibly reputable* overstock site", right?

Pretty birdies, pretty dress.

Again with the feathered friends.

Embroidered swirly things make my heart go pitter-patter.

*I did buy a green and white gingko DvF wrap dress from them this fall, and I'm pretty damn sure it's authentic.  Right style number, right label, right mix of materials, right print, high-quality construction... I'll take my chances with the poor translation and oh hell, even if these pieces turn out to be knockoffs, they're still pretty damn gorgeous.  This line of reasoning is every legit designer's worst fear, I know.  But!  $79!  Cannot argue with double-digit prices for Chloe and Marc Jacobs, I say.

It's probably a good thing that not all of these are available in my size at the moment.  It's also probably a bad thing that "my size" is currently being strained by a pound of mozzarella wrapped in prosciutto.  I knew it was a bad idea at the time, and now it's definitely been confirmed:  bad ideas made of cheese lead to the inability to button jeans.  Lesson learned.
