|Club Monaco Colby Scalloped Dress|
1. The Club Monaco Colby Scalloped Dress is one of those super versatile dresses that require little effort to transform. It’s now on sale in three colors; while there is no additional discount to apply right now, it’s definitely something I would buy at full price (or with a nominal discount). I own this black, but plan to order it in “Lily Pink” as well. And speaking of styles that are worth purchasing at retail, I recently ordered the Meradyth Suede Pump in Mustard and am very excited to receive it.
