Worth It

I've loved Free People's "Fable" Dress for years! Every time I happen to see it on someone, I fall in love with it again. But since the Fable style is one that Free People carries all the time (they just change the colors) I figured I'd always have a chance to buy it. Also, because it is a signature brand piece, it never goes on sale, which was a factor in never being able to hit that "add to cart" button.
Out of all the colors, my favorite was always the black and white. Earlier this year, I came across a couple of knock-offs. I purchased them and they sucked. Luckily the consignment shop I work with took them and they sold quickly. Then, the real deal black/white combo was sold out! When I saw one on eBay for a good price, I finally pulled the trigger and I couldn't be happier! (The black/white is now back in stock on the Free People site.)
This is definitely one of those times when it is worth it to splurge on the real deal. The fabric and quality is wonderful, it is super comfortable, flattering, and I know I will wear this for years! I've seen many bloggers wear this while pregnant, and since the top has hook and eye closure I've heard it is nursing friendly (you will see I am wearing a black tank under it for modesty.)
So there's my advice : I've tried the look-a-likes.... you won't regret investing in this one!
