Should I or Shouldn’t I?

I saw this dress today and fell in lust with it.  It certainly reminds me of Marilyn Monroe‘s iconic white dress.  I think that sparkly gold would be fabulous for semi-formal events.  But, since I don’t have any on my calendar I’m not sure it’s a worthwhile purchase.  I tried to think of some ways to dress it down and make it appropriate for teaching– but the only idea I came  up with while walking around the store was a black cardigan and black tights.  But, I questioned whether or not it would work.  I also thought about putting a shirt over the top, so that it would be like wearing a gold knife pleated skirt.  However, this is an out of the box look for me and I’m not sure.  So, I ask you dear readers, should I or shouldn’t I purchase this dress?  It is currently on sale for $39.99– originally $60.

I wasn’t in the mood to ask the sales lady to remove it, so I am planning on going back to the original JC Penney and trying on the smaller size. If it fits, it’s mine!
