|Macys- INC Toile-Print Off-The-Shoulder Midi Dress|
Occasionally an item will jump off a web page or catalog and scream "I am beautiful - You will look great in this!" I saw it on the Macy's site a few weeks ago and immediately put it in my shopping cart. Just doing that does not mean I am going to make an immediate purchase. I am not an impulse shopper and tend to analyze and go through a justification process before purchasing. I drive my self crazy thinking and rethinking large purchases, but that is a story for another day (new car).
This is part of Macy's house brand INC International Concept, and is described like this:
Breezy and chic in every way, INC International Concepts soft cotton dress features a scenic toile print and a skin-baring silhouette you'll want to show off every sunny day - Approx. 43" long Off-the-shoulder neckline; A-line midi silhouette; Pullover styling; smocked waist.
I love the cool summer look. For me it is a bit long, falling at my ankles and I will get the length shortened. The Toile* print is adorable and feminine.
My patience in waiting paid off. The original price was $99 and a few weekends ago it was one-half off at $49. Macys' has easy return policies either in-store or by mail so I decided to try it; every bit as cute and practical as I hoped. I wish I could encourage you to purchase it, but it is currently unavailable. The fact that it disappeared overnight, in all sizes, tells me that there may be just some inventory adjust happening and it could become available again. If so check the link above over the next few weeks if interested. At a sale/clearance price it is well worth it for the upcoming summer season. Enjoy.
*"Toile de Jouy", sometimes abbreviated to simply "toile", is a type of decorating pattern consisting of a white or off-white background on which is a repeated pattern depicting a fairly complex scene, generally of a pastoral theme such as a couple having a picnic by a lake or an arrangement of flowers - Wikepedia.
