This dress is magic. Once upon a time, when I first started choosing my own clothes to wear, I bought the exact same dress from American Eagle, brand new. I loved it. It was simple, it was feminine, it was flattering, it matched everything. See? Magic.
When I found the exact same dress in a smaller size at Plato's Closet, it simply reaffirmed what I already knew -- yep, this dress is magic. I was worried the size was too small, but sure enough, it fit perfectly. It's everything I remembered and I'm very glad to have it back.
