On a shopping whim last night, my mother and I hit the T.J. Maxx in North Andover, Massachusetts. I needed some winter tights, and who can resist the allure of $30 Le Sportsacs? But we found something a bit more exotic last night as we stripped through the Clearance racks: A Marc Jacobs gown from his Fall '05 collection. It was worn down the runway by Kim Noorda, when she was still brunette, and now it's somehow stuck in the Boston suburbs, waiting to get worn. The dress is a size small, and it looks like it can fit a girl sized 0 - 6. It's in perfect condition, but the flower belt was designed by Venetia Scott as a runway prop - it doesn't come with the gown. And now comes the painful part: Even though it's on clearance, the dress is still $700. It was too expensive for me, but leaving it on the rack was haunting. If you want it, and can handle the investment, go now: TJ Maxx, 350 Winthrop Ave # 350. North Andover, MA 01845. (978) 685-3220 And then send a photo of you in the outfit, because I'm dying to see! --FARAN
