would you tell me i'm insane if i purchased this [to wear to holiday parties]...
realizing that it costs more than i normally spend on almost anything. i'm thinking it would double as wedding wear. is it kosher to wear something at your wedding that everyone has already seen you in elsewhere? because i couldn't possibly convince myself to spend that much on something unless i wear it many, many times.
if it were a pair of shoes I'd say HELL NO. you want them to be brand spanking new the day you get married in em. (see: genevieve)
but a shrug? pshaw.
do you already have the dress picked out? do you know when + where you're getting married? i.e. how chilly it will be? do you care?
i say buy it.
