The Margot - Primark's imitation.

Friday, 18 March 2011

It's almost as if the designers at Primark HQ read my "Shirley Shares" post a few weeks back (Not that they read my blog ofcourse, lol!), where I talked about being in Love with this Margot Lace dress by Erdem (Pictured below). They came out with a copy. It's not exactly the same, The Margot is lace all over, while the copy has it only on the body, and is sleeveless. It's so obvious where the inspiration came from though. Being the not so rich girl (The Erdem dress is £1,960..cor blimey!) who loves the odd Primark purchase, I couldn't let this one slip by. It was only £15. YES. 

But this means I'd have to sacrifice something in next weeks budget...what do you Economists call this again?
Ah yes, Opportunity Cost... how I detest thee.

It's a beautiful dress nonetheless. :) xo

This dress was made for you and it's going to look so lovely on you. If you want the skirt to have as much volume as the one Alexa is wearing, all you need to do is wear a layered net skirt underneath the dress. You can even make one yourself if you can saw. Love Sia x

salut! sophie said...

I need this dress in my life right now! Primark never fails to impress me, it seems like the quality is just getting better and better!

This dress is so pretty and feminine and perfect for summer, but I'd love to rock it out with a black leather jacket and military boots.
