I scored this $475 Milly dress for $156 from the Piperlime closeout sale. I bought it right after the beach wedding we attended (here). I talked about not being able to find a dress when you have an occasion, so when you find a good dress - snap it up! So that's exactly what I did. At $156 it was still a good chunk of my budget but I like investing in special occasion pieces that I really love and the quality is impeccable in person. I plan to wear it for weddings, TV appearances, events, etc. I wore it for a video shoot at my house recently (I'll share the video soon). This dress is still available at the links below, but not at the Piperlime price, so I gathered some more affordable options as well!
