NMT18RJ_mn.jpgI really must stop falling hopelessly in love with dresses I simply cannot afford. Not only that, but being a student and journalist, I don't have the places to wear such examples of designer gorgeousness. But, enough of my plight, isn't this dress fantastic?

By David Meister, this luxurious strapless dress manages to pull of a strapless, figure hugging bodice with lashings of class. The pleated, almost tulip skirt really compliments the strapless shape, creating a gorgeous silhouette. In this season's 'new black' (no, honestly it is this time!) it can't fail. Now all we need do is save $410.
