jayabusa was taken with a dress made by Heartbreaker for the final scene of the movie. They are a very tiny local designer and appear to hand-make everything they sell. I love supporting people like that. So, I ordered the dress on Monday (thanks to some help from a certain individual). It arrived this afternoon in record time.
The frock looked super cute on the website. It's fun in person but not knock-your-socks-off adorable. And it is certainly not a $76 dress by any stretch of the imagination even if it is handmade with great love. It reminds me of the dresses your mother would make when you were little. I suppose there's something sweet and nostalgic about that worth paying for if that's part of your intent in a purchase. Otherwise, the dress would be more appropriately priced at $50 or $60.
We know it reads well on camera, the means of construction works for the character and the lovely lady from Heartbreaker I dealt with via email was very professional.
I'm adjusting my perspective on it accordingly.
