Don't you hate when a dress you love goes on sale and the minute you hit 'buy', it's sold out. Case in point this Marc by Marc Jacobs dress that Leighton Meester, Fergie, and Dawn Richards all worn.
-sigh!- Well at least I know Marc's dress and those Givenchy shoes don't mix quite well but then again...
