THE MUST-HAVE OF ALL TIMES


This one will be mine soon, very soon


Ok I now I'm repeating myself here over and over by mentioning this little feeling of guilt that I get everytime I make my already huge wardrobe a bit bigger... I was thinking of putting my wallet on vacation and let my stuffed closet breathe for a while so to say. But then lovely Ranna posted a picture of her in an amazing dress from Trashy Diva that I just can't stop thinking about. So I go to the Trashy Diva website and there are som many pretty dresses that make me totally breathless and that I just have to have.
Oh my oh my oh my.

(But, I do not only feel like I would have saved myself the approximate amount of 350£ that I was willing to put out on my lost tulle dream, no, I feel like I would have been handed over that amount instead. So I'm having atleast two dresses! I guess it's a good thing I didn't study to become an economic adviser, right? :)

Sweetest dress ever. You had to buy!
And: I know this crazy accounting logic when it comes to dresses... :)

Dotti : great to know there are more like me out there :D

Anushka said...

oh, i love your logic! that dress really is stunning. but i'm the opposite - instead of buying a dress i will go crazy planning to sew something similar, track down a pattern, buy heaps of fabric - even get hold of the zip! - and then let it linger, gathering dust, as i get distracted by other things...

Anushka : but that is a lot smarter, you know, you get to be creative and save a lot of money! I used to do that before, sewed myself all the things I wanted, now I seldom find the time. And I recognize myself in you too - I just moved and found a bag of helf-made dresses in the back of my closet when emptying it...

Verrrrry pretty.

I love TrashyDiva. I was thinking of buying myself something from there for myself... I've always wanted one, and I just got a pretty big check from the government... :)

The Clothes Horse said...

That dress is ravishing. Trashy Diva is definitely on my shopping wishlist now as well.

Mrs Munster said...

Economic adviser indeed :) I like the logic though. Fab dresses indeed. I hope now I've never visited Trashy Diva site! There is one black dress that I've got my eye on now...

Jenni : So go get it girl :D

Mrs Munster : I also want to get the black cherry dress. It's great that the dollar rate is low compared to euro and pound istn't it!

Becky said...

You have to buy it! :) Also thanks for the hairdo tips! xx

You are going to look great in that dress! We all make those "wise" decisions in the name of fashion. We have to do it to look great, so don't beat yourself up too much!

Beautiful dress!!!

ivoreece said...

The dress is very pretty!!!

Ranna said...

I'm quite glad my blog united you with that dress, it really looks like it's made for you!

annabananna said...

my shopping-math goes exactly like yours! and: i heart that dress!!

Erin Chee Quee said...

I recently discovered your blog and must say that it is a wonderful source of inspiration! Also, you have reignited my love for 'retro' dressing...with a modern twist! Thankyou for letting us peep a glimpse inside your fabulous world :). Looking forward to your next post.

I'm really glad I've never really started internetshopping... I could never conduct myself...

Theremina said...

SO pretty! And I think these dresses will actually help me to refrain my spending habit: they're worth stopping shopping for a while!

Pratishtha Durga said...

LOL! Finance takes a backseat in the world of fashion. A true fashionista lives by the rule "Thou shall not save". You can't help it. So get over the guilt and enjoy the gorgeous dress. Anyone would flip with that kind of temptation.

Miss Woo said...

Ooh I can totally see you rocking that dress ;) Though now I'm clicking on the trashy diva website too and drooling at all the dresses.

desmitten said...

i love the color! it is so fresh for summer!

The Waves said...

Wow, that is a stunning dress. You are going to look fantastic wearing it. (Then again, you always look fantastic...) I am scared of getting acquainted with the store website now...
