You aren't going to believe me, but this isn't three separate pieces. I was cruising the Nordstrom site and saw this and figured the ruffled top was just paired with the patent leather belt and pencil skirt so that folks wouldn't just buy once piece. Right? I was totally wrong. It's a dress. And its only $168. I can't tell if I really like it because it surprised me or because its so chic. Maybe both?
