The Perfect 3.1 Phillip Lim Dress, Found at the Barneys Warehouse Sale

Everyone has that one item of clothing that, for some inexplicable reason (like a looming credit card bill), never made it into their closet. That one special dress/top/skirt that would have worked perfectly with those shoes/bag /jacket. In my case it was a 3.1 Phillip Lim purple, Grecian-draped silk jersey tulip dress. It was the perfect color (purple is surprisingly flattering color for a lot of skin tones); the perfect shape (it nips in at the waist and falls rather nicely over the thighs); and the perfect work to weekend, summer-to-fall piece. I saw myself wearing it with heels and a long gold necklace at night, and tights, a turtleneck, a leather bomber, and long leather boots for day. This past weekend, I entered the chaos that is the twice yearly warehouse sale at Barneys. And after a serious scrum with a number of hungry shoppers, sharpened elbows at the ready, I found myself staring at 'my'/THE dream dress. Eureka!!!! The only one on the hanger; it was meant to be.

Check out the Barneys Warehouse Sale now on at 255 West 17th Street in NYC. And if you stop by, let us know what you scored in the comments.
