Fat face dress alternative

I absolutely love this gorgeous fab dress from FatFace.
However, it is a bit pricey for me and I wondered if anyone knows of a similar cheaper alternative. Or...if I do splash out what are their sizes like? I am a 12-14, so should I get a 12 or 14??? Help!

Fat Face are generously sized so I'd go for the 12.

nice dress, go for the 12

is £44.50 really expensive for a dress?

I would say that was pretty reasonable esp for Fat Face quality

it's lovely - I'd splash out on it if I were you

I am having this problem. I can never find stuff I like and suddenly I love everything in the shops but can't afford to buy it all. I love the Haven sweater from Fat Face and thier denim skirt but just can't justify £40 on each of them for what they are. I think for a dress though £45 is reasonable. Its a whole outfit iyswim, if you bought a top and skirt/pair of jeans, it'd come to at least that.

You could wait till the sale or when it gets reduced - which happens pretty quickly in Fat Face.

buy it, you'll get tons of wear out of it and then probably be able to recoup your cost by flogging it on ebay. Have often sold Fat Face stuff for more than i paid for it, it really holds its value and is usually great quality.

You know what?! I think I will splash out...I absolutely love it! Just won't tell the hubby...'this old thing - I've head it for years!'
