Frou Frou Dress – French Connection • Boots – Topshop
Here is another one of the purchases I made in an unusually sensible state of mind. If you can call buying sheer frou frou ‘sensible’, which you probably can’t. Unless you’re an eighteenth century French aristocrat. My definition of sensible in this instance however, is not an appraisal of whether an item of clothing would survive a week at Glastonbury or an over-enthusiastic puppy petting session, but hinges instead on its price. As the fruits of French Connection, this dress originally cost £160. That is, in other words, 27 years of loyal Netflix subscription or Tramlines tickets for you and four mates. Clearly not an acceptably priced item for a 21-year-old student literally burning money on rent. In the sale however, this lovely thing cost just 48 quid! And guess what? There’s loads of them left! Go forth and rain your hard-loaned student money on it before French Connection realises how much money it’s giving us off.
