I want, I want, I want!!

I have not typically been a Lily Pulitzer fan - mainly because of the prices. I love the Lily prints, but I sometimes feel like they are way overpriced... but I think being in Charleston is having a Lily affect on me. I'm tempted more and more to get some Lily lovelies. This year I bought two Lily dresses and a bag on RueLaLa.

But now I'm really in love... I first saw this dress when The Company She Keeps posted a photo on her blog (she owns it...jealous!). I love the colors, the beachiness, and I could so see myself wearing this all around Charleston... I mean, it's calling to me...

...but $178 for one dress. Ugg...I just can't. I found a size 4 on Ebay for $158...but that's still pretty high for me for just one dress. If I had a special occasion to wear it to (and if I didn't already own 5 billion dresses that a quarter of still have tags on them) then maybe...just maybe... I'd take the financial plunge... but I just can't justify this one. Sigh...

I guess I need to get on that lottery hobby I've been meaning to take up.
