Our eagle-eyed reader Marisa spotted this "U-Neck Dress" at Bloomingdale's for $78. The dress is from Aqua, the Bloomingdale's house brand. The curious thing? The dress is also from Kimchi & Blue, a house label from Urban Outfitters. Their dress was originally $78, the same as the Bloomingdale's brand, but now it's $48 on sale. So what's going on here? Did these dresses come through the same factory? Is Bloomingdale's secretly sending Urban's it's kickbacks? And - most important - if you wore the dress and someone asked you where you got it, would you say Urban's or Bloomie's? Or, "Oh, it's so old, it's vintage."
