Do it like Victoria :: Grey & White

Sunday, December 06, 2015 Simone Foster 26 Comments

Oooh..... Finally the cooler weather is coming our way here in Hong Kong.

Chanced upon an online store... yes, again.... ( Look! This month there are lots of shopping to be done and sales happening everywhere so don't blame me for looking....) and saw this dress which looked somewhat similar like the one Victoria Beckham had in her collection a couple of years back.

Naturally it isn't an exact replica but the peek-a-boo white pleating layer at the bottom was quite the catcher for me. To be honest, the dress arrived but was certainly disappointed as it did not look like the pictures put up on the online store and also the ends were a little fraying ( nothing a lil snipping won't help anyways).

I have learnt this lesson many a times with online stores, its always a touch-n-go situation seeing they often post pictures which even isn't of the actual product and secondly the material used can sometimes be quite different from what it is described to be. Let alone the cutting of the dress. But of course, when the pictures look that good, and the price is somewhat reasonable, one tends to always forget past lessons learnt and get caught in the same situation over and over again. Nonetheless,since it's in my hands now, I might as well make something good out of it so here's the look for you.











So, just for your info, this was the grey Victoria Beckham Dress which caught my fancy ( as seen on Cameron Diaz) and the picture below was the picture posted of the dress when I bought it online.


And this was the picture of the item I had been drawn to purchase from.


Have a great weekend ahead and hope all is going well for your holiday preparations!

Dress : Aliexpress ( Victoria Beckham inspired dress)
Earrings & Necklace: Foster Bay ( old)
Cuff Bangle : Tiffany 
Bag : Fendi
Heels : Charles David ( similar here)

Love,
Simone xoxo

    1. Yes indeed Ronald. Most indoor places would have warm heating so possibly if one dares to try wearing this look where it gets real cold with a couple of layers over.
