Dancing at her funeral

I'm not one for name brands.  In fact, I really don't care.  More money means better stitching, higher quality, and better fabrics?  Sure, I get that (when applicable).  But it also means more cost and more tears for my bank account.

Though in this case, I really couldn't resist the urge for a French Connection dress.  Normally, I'd never spring $200 on a dress.  Unless it's on sale for $30.  Score!

Frankly, I really don't have an eye for the specialty of designer items.  This looks like it could pass for a cheap dress to me.  In fact, I think I own $20 dresses than I like more than this dress.  I may actually be more in love with its pricetag than the actual design.

  3. I don't like to spend a lot of money on dresses either I have one that is quite expensive. ( which I'm posting tomorrow actually lol ) but most of my dresses are from H&M. I love your studded necklace that is so cool!

  4. Haha, oh man, how often have we fallen for that? If the price tag's higher, we think the design must be better. Not the case, huh?
    But I must admit, from the photos, this dress really does look lovely. The detailing on it is just incredible.

  11. I really like the dress on you, I think the lace is very pretty! But I totally get what you're saying... I normally can't get myself to pay a lot for something when I know I can find something similar for less money.
