After 3 years of sporadically finding and then losing on Ebay I have just won the Pearl Lowe Peggy dress grin

Christmas parties here I come!

Now I have to go explain to DP why I paid £30 over the original retail price blush smile

Oh me likes.

That's lovely... I've seen one on for £50 at the moment. Is that in the ball park of what you paid?

BunnyLebowski Mon 26-Nov-12 20:35:38

I paid £70 headfairy blush

My justification is that I've wanted it for 3 years and will wear it forever as it's so classic and so so so me.

They're going for silly money. Clearly!

headfairy Mon 26-Nov-12 20:38:51

Don't have to justify it to me, it's really lovely. And the one on for £50 is a starting bid with 4 days to go. I'm sure you're going to get tons of wear out of that. Was it new?

BunnyLebowski Mon 26-Nov-12 20:52:48

New without tags. Had been tried on but was being sold due to weight gain. Someone's gain is my gain too wink

Now how do I style it? Black accessories or colour?

CajaDeLaMemoria Mon 26-Nov-12 20:54:36

How deep is the neckline? I love that!

You have great taste smile

BunnyLebowski Mon 26-Nov-12 21:03:29

It doesn't look too indecent Caja. And I'm not averse to a big wee bit of cleavage!

I won it by 14p. There's some Ebayer out there cursing me right now!

BunnyLebowski Wed 28-Nov-12 18:41:26

I got the green grecian pearl lowe dress for £15-an it doesnt fitsad I am determined to literally starve myself for the next 3 weeks as it is lovely on but just wont zip up the backangry

Fillybuster Fri 30-Nov-12 10:42:38

Its lovely. I remember when the collection launched and I salivated over the pics, but was still bfing dd2 and carrying loads of excess weight (and not really going to parties much that year) so didn't get to the shops....

BunnyLebowski Fri 30-Nov-12 10:48:18

Me too Filly! DD was born Oct 08 and this collection launched 09!

Still waiting for the postie. Very impatiently!

Pink - The green one is lovely! If you low carb from now you'll definitely be able to wear it for Xmas!

ApplesinmyPocket Fri 30-Nov-12 10:52:27

I really, really like that, Bunny. Glad you won it.

puds11 Fri 30-Nov-12 10:55:18

envy Thats right up my street that is.

Pinkforever Fri 30-Nov-12 10:59:44

Bunny-do you know that peacocks is back online and there are 4 pearl lowe dresses in the collection? I have ordered 2 of them!!

BunnyLebowski Fri 30-Nov-12 11:07:41

Pink I've just looked. I'm actually glad I don't really love any of them! My bank account couldn't handle it!

The red one is lovely but not with my knockers.

Thank you Apples smile

Pinkforever Fri 30-Nov-12 11:14:06

I didnt order the red one as I agree dont think it is flattering to norks! ordered the flower and ballerina print-I have high hope for the ballerina one as is very similar to the star print pearl lowe which is my favourite dress ever!

BunnyLebowski Fri 30-Nov-12 11:27:50

The ballerina one is really nice. I have a similar one from New Look which is one of my all time favourites.

Think there's a pic on my profile. I wear it all the time smile

pinkyredrose Fri 30-Nov-12 11:48:49

Wow that's a gorgeous dress! I want !

I'm watching that dress on eBay at the moment it's in £31 with 2 hours to go. It's in a size 14 though. I'm 31 weeks pregnant but thought I could get it for after the bang is born.... I don't know though.

Pinkforever Fri 30-Nov-12 18:00:06

Did your dress arrive?-pics please! I have that new look dress! Would love the peggy dress but just cant justify spending that amount of cash...

BunnyLebowski Fri 30-Nov-12 20:37:07

It didn't arrive Pink sad Should come tomorrow.

I'm praying it fits as I got the 12. Want to wear it out on the town tomorrow night!

Pinkforever Sat 01-Dec-12 10:37:15

Any sign of the dress yet?-hurry up postie I am impatient to see a pic! I have hung the green one up on my wardrobe door for inspiration-night out is 3 weeks today! will really have to live off slimfast if I want to do it I think!

BunnyLebowski Sat 01-Dec-12 10:39:09

It's here!!! It's seriously AMAZING!!!! grin

Off out for food but will post a pic of me wearing it when I get back!

And it fits beautifully and is a 12! <does little jig> grin
