Coveted Item of the Week: BCBGMAXAZRIA One Shoulder Dress With Rosette Hem

I think I've got prom fever a bit, and I'm thinking a little about what I might do if I were going to be doing prom over again. Well I saw this on the Ellegirl blog in the Save vs. Splurge Party Dresses Blog piece and fell in love.

Coveted Item of the Week: The Ultimate Party Dress

BCBG MAXAZRIA from Lord and Taylor  - $498
This BCBGMAXAZRIA dress is way way way over my budget but it's just gorgeous. I love the asymmetry of the dress, I love the structured florals. Most importantly I love the color. This is such a statement!  If I were a girl going to my prom right now I would be BEGGING my mom to let me get this dress. It would be a stunner and in  a small town like Dayton, I don't think anyone would be wearing anything like it. For prom (or any occasion) I am keen on the idea of standing out and not looking like anyone else. Best of all, this dress requires minimal styling - sleek sophistication. I'd do a the pin-up style cat eye and a bold red lip to match the dress, or nude if you're not keen on the bold lip.

Will I Get It?
At $498 dollars with nothing to wear something like this to, I'd say no even though it comes in my (new) Size 10 size.

Freaking awesome dress...
