If you're thinking about stealing a dress, you might not want to swipe a one-of-a-kind leopard print frock from right under a designer's nose. Taken from the Mayle pop-up shop, the large-sleeved, backless dress in question apparently hadn't had its stock come in yet, so now there are just no more of them. No more! Not only did the perpetrator ruin a gorge Mayle design for the rest of us, who wants to get all glammed up in a backless dress only to have to disguise it with a belt, sweater, and a fake mustache?
