Do I still love you or is it just lust?


I thought the Frankie and the Heartstrings lyric in the post title sums up my dress lusting at the moment. I don't really need any of these dresses but I do really want them!

The first dress is £45 from Evans or style369 and I think it would be great for work and would be easily adapted for a night out with some heels and a statement necklace. Very practical and very wearable.

The next dress is so beautiful and a bit tacky which is just what I like. It's also a steal at £28 from Tesco and I am in love with the print. I think I would wear it with some black tights and a cropped black cardigan.

The third dress is from River Island and I saw it in black before Christmas. I tried it on and fell in love, it was only a size 14 which is way smaller than my usual size but it looked fab. I left it and tried to find a size 16 or 18 and it had sold out everywhere and I thought I had lost the dress forever but it's back in a brown/mink shade and is £49.99 which is a tad pricey but I'm thinking about getting it for a wedding I have in the summer.

What do you think? Shall I be sensible or splurge?!

What are you lusting after at the moment?

  13. I'm seriously lusting after some Topshop dresses right now, through I was flicking through the Tesco catalogue yesterday and saw some beauties in there too.

    I vote for the River Island one!

  15. All three dresses are beautiful! I am really drawn to the floral one, the print is lovely. Number 3 is pricey but if you are going to a wedding this may just be the perfect dress, such stunning detailing too xx

  16. Gem, I cannot give you sound advice, I bought two dresses yesterday off Etsy, and worked out that in February I had SIX dresses.

  17. i love tesco clothing, have had some totally brilliant things from there!
    i like them all, although i am drawn to a good print, so the tesco one probably wins!

  18. Splurge. The RI dress is beautiful and if it's for a wedding then I think it is a reasonable price. You want to feel special at these occassions. x
