After months of looking I finally found a dress which stood out for me.
It's a Marchesa dress, which was worn by Blake Lively to the Met ball and it's GORGEOUS! :nuts:
Only problem is I can't find it/afford it anyway.

But I found somewhere which does a good copy of it for about £150. The copy is on the left hand side - what do you think of the quality, would it be worth it?
;)

IMHO not worth it. There are so many sales going on right now, I think you can do better. But if you love it, then go for it!

The copy isn't nearly as gorgeous as the original. I also think you can do better. :flowers:

^Spam?

Anyway, in regards to the dress, it's gorgeous, but one thing that I noticed right away about the copy, is that the flowery ruffles look much bigger. IMO, that can make a big difference. Have you tried the copy on? That might help you make your decision. I'm guessing that the size of the flowery ruffles (especially around the hip area) on the copy are going to make the dress look a bit awkward as opposed to the elegant look of the original.
