+ high-res version

One of my best adrenalin rushes I get is when I find a bargain. Especially when I can get away with getting something from a high street brand that I have seen at a designer outlet. Of course, that is not to disregard the designer brands. What I do believe in is that you don’t need to spend hundreds of pounds to look good. You should definitely spend extra on classics that stay in your wardrobe for years to come but if you still want to keep up with the trend, you can get away with getting cheaper options to last you a couple of seasons before you get rid of them.

So! My pick from the designer’s side is this gorgeous metallic-pink jacquard Mulberry dress that I absolutely adore. You can dress it up or dress it down- it will shine through. And it is very in keeping with the metallic trend this season. I found it on Net-A-Porter’s website (LOVE this website!!) and you can shop it here. Obviously for £495, this dress does not come cheap.

If you don’t want to spend hundreds of pounds on just one dress, then I have this amazing alternative from COS. This store is pretty much becoming one of my favourite stores. It is a hidden gem. Their emphasis on minimalism, simplicity, cuts and silhouette of the fabric is just spot on. The sculpted sequin dress is one of my favourite dresses from COS. And at £125, it is a bargain compared to the Mulberry dress but you’re still keeping up with the same trend. For me, the only thing you’re not getting is the Mulberry name. So if you want to buy this metallic silver sculpted sequin dress then click here.

Hope this post gave you some inspiration to go out and find your own “High St VS Designer” moment. Till my next post, stay passionate and stay fashionable!! 😉

O by the way, the feature I did on Stella McCartney’s Falabella bags– they would go very nicely with either of these dresses. Just sayin’ 😉
