For long I have been looking at L.K Bennet clothes and shoes and drooling over their beauty, but clutching my heart with sadness at their prices. Today I went to their website, just to check if by some stroke of luck, they would be having 90% discount sale ( stranger things have happened). But no. They persist in tormenting me. I think they know I am watching. Countless sighs have escaped my lips when I think of their dresses.
My expedition to their website today did not result in any pin number punching activity, but it did introduce me to this:
The Selina Dress
The normal procedure everytime I visit the LK Bennet website usually goes something like this
Dibs checks prices after having fallen in love with dresses
Dibs's eyes threaten to fall out of sockets ( trust me this happens all the time, even though i know how expensive they normally are)
Dibs quietly logs off
Dibs sits in the darkness for 30 minutes, pondering at life's unfairness, and her lack of a bank account to rival Paris Hilton's.
Dibs resolves to play the lottery (again).
Dibs goes searching for Dulche de Leche hagen daaz ice cream.
But not this time LK Bennet. Because this time, Dibs found a friend in Burda magazine May 2011. And that friend gave her this
Not quite the same but it will do. The only difference, from what I can see, is that the Burda dress does not have front in-seam pockets like the LK Bennet dress. But thats all right. I don't mind, because for once, I will make something for myself that is similar to an LK Bennet dress, and no, I will not spend £195 to make. Thank you very much.
This takes priority over any project I was going to shop for on saturday at the Goldhawk Road Fabric Fandango. Except of course stuff I have to make for Me Made June. Oh, the thought of actually making this dress. I wonder what fabric I would make it in. The LK Bennet version was made with silk shantung. I am not that crazy. Not yet anyways, when I have no experience dealing with such experience fabric. Hmm.....
