The first time I saw this dress was on my homie's Jewels' web page. I knew I wanted it, but I just didn't know when I'd get around to buying it. But now that there's an American Apparel in the Mall at Short Hills, today I made the leap and bought it. I got the black with black straps and I'm hoping to find the silver and fuchsia metallic cords as well. Anyway it's a great piece and I can see myself wearing it ALOT.
