In the UK, there’s always a ‘hit’ high street dress every season. It’s usually a catwalk knock off that gets pimped out by all the glossies and weeklies (Now, Heat, Grazia etc) so much so that immedisately, it’s picked up by the eBay evilies and they then buy out all the dresses and promptly put them on eBay for twice the price making people believe they are buying the real thing.
Well this season, it’s Marks & Spencer who have got the high street ‘IT’ dress with a gold sequinned number that is a combination of the YSL dress and the Burberry Prorsum dress that Sienna Miller wore to the Costume Insititute Gala in New York. Now you guys had a pretty mixed reaction towards the gold but it’s no use – I’m still feeling very magpie-ish. I just love the idea of wearing this with something completely non-flashy like chunky wool or masculine looking grey jersey.
If you too are having a magpie moment, then you can pre-order this dress from the Marks & Spencer website for £110. The dress arrives in November – get there before the eBay devilspawn do. Note, M&S sizing is generous!
