We've all done it. Found THE perfect dress and then looked at the price. we then spend hours, even days, going over our inner monologue: "Is it worth it?", "Can I justify that amount of money?" and "Would I wear I wear it again? Oh I'm sure something will come up". The answer is always Yes, No and probably not. Thus making the torture pointless for me as I will always end up taking the sensible option and putting my debit card back in its hole.
This was the story of my brief affair with the Eliza J - Lace Detail 3/4 sleeve ruched detail dress. From its discovery on the House Of Fraser website late last night to chatting about my love for it early this morning with the lovely Debbae from the HOF twitter account to trying it on in store this afternoon with the sales lady oohing and cooing. It was a whirlwind romance but at just over £100 it couldn't last.
And so I took to the bargain hunters paradise: EBAY. Below I've pictured 6 options I'm mulling over. All in a similar 1950s prom dress style, all ranging between £10 - £40. MUCH more acceptable!
I have included the eBay sellers names if anyone wishes to look them up for themselves.
ALL OF THEM.ReplyDelete
I could literally buy all of them & still save money from what the Eliza J costs. Doesn't mean I don't still want it. LolDelete
100000% the first one with the bow and the wee sleeves, it's the closest to the super expensive one and it's just amazeballs!!! I kind want it....... lol.ReplyDelete
I love that Eliza J dress so much too! I don't know whether you're still interested in it, but at HoF that dress is in the sale for £39. I've been eyeing it up, so thought I'd spread the news to fellow dress-lovers ;D xReplyDelete
