again with the half-headless models?

Either I'm feeling especially vulnerable to things marked "sale" due to my depressing lack of spring break travel (hi! still here! in Cincinnati! UGH!), or this dress is really fucking adorable. It would be a departure from my normal black wool shift dress(es)- it is navy blue, after all. And it would go especially well with those grey-beige heels that haunted me each night until I found them on clearance for $27.
And assuming I ever get a job interview (hi! potential employers! call me!), it would be a pretty excellent not-too-fussy interview dress.


Why has Urban Outfitters followed Target on the Headless Model Bandwagon? I know the merchandisers might think "but what if her bangs are distracting from the dress?", but seriously the fact that the model's head is cut off like a bad self-portrait is what's distracting me here.

It's adorable, but IMO, not worth $55 for a wool/poly blend. You could find something very similar and cheaper at a vintage store (online or physically located).

the half model heads are just weird...

Ha, I was about to say $55 is cheap for Urban Outfitters. That dress is adorable! I have some chocolate peep toes that would look fab with it. Hmm...

BubbleGum--definitely cheap for Urban Outfitters...I'm just a vintage junkie.
