Rodarte's Stunning Mermaid Gowns Will Run You $25,000

The Rodarte dresses that had fashion lovers and mermaid wannabes alike fawning during New York Fashion Week have hit Moda Operandi for a S/S 15 pre-sale, and wowza, are they expensive. The midi-length dresses come in at a comparatively modest $10,000 a pop—while for the lady desiring a full-length, ball-ready gown,  we're talking more of a $25,000 investment.

The three floor-length gowns from the collection, all fit for only the most glamorous of mermaids, range anywhere from $22,000 to more than $25,000 which makes this day just like any other: We are once again forced to choose between investing in a new motor vehicle, and buying a hand-painted net gown with feather embroidery, iridescent sequins, and Swarovski crystal embellishments.
