Can anyone help me find a cheaper version of this dress?

Hi all,

I've trying to plan what to wear for 3 weddings this summer and I've kinda fallen in love with this gorgeous green lace dress Keira Knighley wore recently:

I love green lace (I'm a redhead so it would really suit me) but I'm struggling to find something similar to it - most green lace dresses I've found are either skater style (so not very wedding-gy) or a bit too revealing.

My budget is anything below the £100 mark. Any ideas please? smile

Whoops didn't do the link properly

Could you find pattern and ask a dressmaker??

ThatRuddyAbyssinian Thu 20-Jun-13 14:28:59

I did think of that, but no idea how much it would cost to get made - dressmakers round here seem to specialise mostly in wedding dresses and seem to be expensive (judging by their websites anyway). Bit afraid to contact one in case it makes a fool out of me blush

Any good?

Thanks for the links smile Love the Esprit one - is Zalando any good to order from? The Topshop one is very nice too. Both dresses I havn't seen before and I've been looking online for ages!

this? And it's reduced too!

MaryKatharine Thu 20-Jun-13 14:40:58

I actually ordered from Zalando last week. Very good customer service.

if you look on the zalando link they have listed a 'you may also like' on the right hand side lower down fomr the dress I linked, there's another green lace dress on that too.

That Asos one a bit too long for me, thanks Mary. smile

I see Esprit have a store in my town (shop has sold out of that dress though) so wonder if I could get them to order it in to at least try it on...

The Kiomi one, fuzzywuzzy? Thats very pretty too smile

You guy are ace at finding things! grin

fuzzywuzzy Thu 20-Jun-13 14:52:04

this has the fishtail cut of theo ne you liked, I don't really like the look of it on the model tho! hmm

fuzzywuzzy Thu 20-Jun-13 14:53:08

yes the Kiomi one is nice.

ThatRuddyAbyssinian Thu 20-Jun-13 15:03:54

Yes that is nice smile I don't think it's the dress on the model that's the problem - its the fact that her lipstick makes her look like the joker! shock

OASIS had some lovely lace skater style dresses in, both in a vibrant blue and a green.
