For some reason, this dress was unavailable for shipment to the US. Something about the distributors in the UK and some contractual nonsense. So when I saw that this was up for bidding on eBay, I had to jump at the chance to own this thing. I had no choice, really. Am I aware of how crazy this dress is? Yes. That's most of the appeal. I have no clue where I'd wear this to. But at least I know I have my (ridiculous) options.
