This Is The Same Dress?! Why Shopping Online Is So Difficult

A couple weeks ago, JCPenney presented its spring and summer clothes at a fashion show, and after seeing a ruffled pink dress with an expensive Lanvin feel, I thought, “I must have that!” But when I looked at the Allen B. by Allen Schwartz dress on JCPenney’s website (on sale for $49.99), I couldn’t believe it was the same dress.
