My Topshop lace insert tunic dress

Lace Insert Tunic Dress by Topshop.

CONFESSION: I WANT THIS DRESS!!! I went to Klcc with my mum and cousin after the engagement ceremony last Saturday. At Topshop, my mum kept on pointing on a few lace dress and tops to me. She loves lace big time (always buying me some lace tops or dress for me, back when she still bought my clothes), so it didn’t surprise me that she was more enthusiastic than I was, in the store, which was filled with lace and florals.

I have a weakness, I just realized last night, that I tend to buy things that the people I love like, or approve of. Back when I was deciding whether I wanted the blue House of Harlow bangles, I asked for Reza’s opinion. He told me that it’d be great if the bracelet were purple and gold instead of blue and gold. Since then, I have been subconsciously looking for a purple bracelet- hence, the purchase of the Lagina. In purple!

Okay, back to the story. I saw this lovely pink dress with lace insert at Topshop. It’s very charming, but I was about to ignore it, until my mum, who saw it first, kept complimenting the dress.

“See this dress, very cantik. The color is so sweet!”, while touching and inspecting the dress.

“If you get this, you can pair it with a pair of leggings. Nice, kan?”, while still touching the dress. I think she was imagining how I’d look with it.

“Very nice, why don’t you try it? Hmm, but you have to remember, you can’t spend that much since you’re going to Japan”

See, she was already talking as if I was planning to get it, when I had no intention to do so!

Okay, the dress is very pretty, but I’m sure something like that would cost a lot, so I didn’t bother looking at the price tag. I am supposed to save for the trip! Not spend more! Well, ironically, I went home and searched for it on net and found out that it’s £60.00. So it’s probably more than RM400 in KL.

But my mum likes it. Although it would shock her that I’d buy a dress (after the bracelets), I somehow feel obliged because she likes it. Reza even said it’s pretty. Ohh!

This is how I plan to wear it:

OMG I cannot believe I even got on Polyvore for this. What am I doing??!! AMIRA GET OVER IT!!!

p/s: Or maybe get it if I have extra $$$ after the trip…

    I recently bought a blouse, which is somehow similar to the dress.
