Once upon a time on a warm sunny New York day, a girl was walking up 5th avenue to go sweat it out at her cardio dance class. While walking impatiently she caught a glimpse of pure beauty in the window front of Club Monaco. Despite the angry mumbles from cynical New Yorkers, she cut right in front of them to get a better look. She had to have a closer look at this beautiful dress. “You will be mine” she said as she pressed her face against the glass window, lovingly gazing at this ruffle off the shoulder dress with a front bow tie. Like fairytale, it as if all of her dreams were coming true.

 For a second she contemplated skipping her workout to go buy the dress. After a few minutes she figured she would go back to the store after her workout, buy it, and live happily ever after. And that is what she did.

Happily ever after is how I feel in this dress. I worship it, like the designing gods of Club Monaco new that I needed this dress. The ruffle sleeves, the bow tie-waist, the coral color… I can’t get enough of it. I want to wear it everywhere. I don’t care if people see me in it more than once, it is my new love. Better than if it were prince charming in the window (although I wouldn’t complain if it were). A dress that makes me feel classy, sexy, and stylish all at the same time. I am so glad I stumbled upon it on that sunny day!
