crave or save: cutout maxi

crave or save: cutout maxi It's time for another crave or save! I've been admiring Rachel Pally's cutout maxi dresses for about a year now. But, I could never pull the trigger and purchase the dress because of the steep price tag. Luckily, I came across this Ark & Co version on Piperlime and knew that I absolutely had to have it. I received the dress last week and couldn't be more proud of my "save". Its a nice fabric that isn't too thin and is extremely flattering. Although I'm set on my cutout stripe maxi, Rachel Pally has this dress in solid colors as well. How amazing does this black cutout maxi look? As luck would have it, Shopbop is having their Friends and Family sale so any of the amazing Rachel Pally dresses could be yours at 25% off!

Which one do you prefer? Crave or save?
