It’s rare that I find myself thinking things like, “This $150 raincoat is a serious find. I don’t need a raincoat right now, but I will someday, and I’ll regret not buying this one when that day comes.” But when the raincoat in question is a fitted, shiny, navy-and-creme-striped Marc Jacobs, you stop thinking straight.
Tokio 7 isn’t the place for a quick, cheap shopping fix – their wares start at around $60 and cap at $500 or so. Most of the stuff is in the $80 – $150 range, so it obvs wasn’t their prices that impressed me. But the brands…OMFG, the brands.
I knew this was a Dolce without even looking at the tag. Versions of the bustier dress can be found everywhere from Forever 21 to Bebe, but no one does it like D&G. The latest version of this dress retails for $525 on eLuxury.com. Tokio 7 was selling it for $80 (yes, that pricetag is for reals).
This pale pink, Jill Stuart dress channels the one Baby wears in the finale of “Dirty Dancing,” and is therefore worth buying for that reason alone ;). Similar Jill Stuart dresses retail for $200 – $500 on REVOLVEClothing.com. Paying $70 is much more palatable, no? And if my boobs had fit into the corset-like top of the dress, I totally would have.
I obvs didn’t leave Tokio 7 empty handed; stay tuned to see what I scored. Let’s just say I got back in touch with my inner Denim Snob in a big, big way.
