1st one - I think you have more money than taste.. grin

2nd one - lovely, although possibly not the thing for waitrose...

1st one - wouldn't pay £30 for it, never mind £3k

2nd one - stunning

I like the Mizrahi. The Marchesa one is a bit boring tbh.

mosschops30 Mon 14-Jul-08 17:45:48

1st one - i love it but wouldnt pay more than about £30 in new look or somewhere similar for it
2nd one - gorgeous, stunning i love it

first one not lush. at all.

second one gorgeous but I could live for about 8 months on that kind of money. and I would be unable to resist telling you so even if you had only asked my opinion on the style of the dress.

2nd is stunning, first is not

I didn't look at the prices so don't care about lifestyle or morals grin But you know:"Oooooooooooh you should be donating it to charity, don't you know about the poor children in Africa, some of us are having to walk 12 miles a minute through snow to get coal to eat for the day...." wink

Ist one - Hideous!
2nd one - Nice, but doesn't look as good as the price tag suggests.

I am afraid that I don't much like either of them.

The second one looks a bit naff and like a US prom dress. The first is just not nice. If I was going to spend that amount of money on a dress I would want something that would be a timetless classic, that would transcend seasons and be almost an heirloom.

What kind of occassion are you buying for?

I like the second one a lot more than the first. Not £4K's worth of like, mind you. First is a bit Abigail's Party.

I just sorted by price on the Net-A-Porter website. Those are the two most expensive dresses out of the entire collection of 250. Its hard to beleive that is chance. Have you just chosen those two because (a) you think expensive equals style or (b) you wished to start this thread to provoke a reaction?

There are some lovely dresses on that site if you don't just go for the two most expensive.

looks like you have to be 12 foot tall to wear them!

Thanks Amazing. I actually did feel really sh*t after that other thread.

For the record, I think those dresses are lovely but tres overpriced. And thank you for saying that you liked mine. Just needed some validation after 3 pregnancies in 3 years and spending my life in a seemingly endless array of jeans and Primark t-shirts.

teh Black one is beautious! A real head turner. the price however is a real stomach turner wink. Enjoy it if you can afford it smile

Pavlovthecat Mon 14-Jul-08 22:12:55

I like the second one, the first is a bit dull. It would not turn my head if you walked past me in it.

noddyholder Mon 14-Jul-08 22:17:57

Lovely if ££££First one beautiful with flat jewelled sandals if you suit the colours

Thomcat Mon 14-Jul-08 22:20:05

I'd think you could get them both for a LOT less money.

Some things are worth £3k, those dresses, imo, are NOT
