As my regular readers know, I'm a Fendi fan. This is one of the dresses that caught my eye in the Spring 09 collection:This Fendi Halter Cutout Dress costs a whopping USD 2,432.40 (PHP 117,963.14) at Net-a-Porter. I should be happy with that actually because at the start of the season, it was at USD 4,880 (PHP 236,663.43)!!! It's a dress--why that absurdly insane price?
Anyway, though I can never afford it, I like to imagine how I can wear it. Polyvore has come up with enchanting ways:Fascinating. I've wanted this dress badly since I saw it early this year! I first saw the ads in the foreign fashion mags I browse through. I was first obsessed with the shoes and then I thought the dress was cute.
It reminds me of the pastillas de leche (milk candy) I indulged in as a kid and they came wrapped in these meticulously crafted Japanese paper. I think I liked the candy more because of the paper! I really love this Fendi dress!So imagine my surprise when I saw this ad in one of our magazines:This Kester dress from Plains & Prints costs a mere PHP 2,395 (USD 50). I don't know whether I should be ecstatic or outraged. Should I get this dress??? I totally love it! And it's not exactly the same. But I feel it will suffer the fate of my Zara ladybug dress. Oh, and when my hubby saw it in the shop, he said, "It's obviously a knock off." No approval from the hubby. I guess that means I shouldn't, right?
