Broderie Lace TopShop Dress

Dress TopShop / Jewellery T:S / Nails Rimmel

This is one of my favourite dresses ever! I know so many other girls who have it too, it's one of those dresses where I just had to have it! it was quite pricy for a high street dress, but you know what Topshop are like! I've made sure that I've worn it a lot to justify the cost. The front bodice of the dress is layered with tiers of pretty broderie anglaise lace and the back is v-shaped with a heavy exposed zip which I think is quite a nice contrast.

Recently, I have developed a love-hate relationship with Topshop because it is becoming out of my price range. I don't mind paying extra if the quality is good... but sometimes the quality is just not there with Topshop garments and I find it hard to part with my money! However, I do find it so reliable in terms of fit and length for short petite girls like myself (under 5ft3) and I admit that it is the first shop I go to when I want to buy new clothes just for the sake of knowing that I'll be able to quickly find something in there that fits me properly. ("Liiiike a glove" as Ace Ventura would say)

Talking of Topshop! I have written my 3rd article for Modern Girl's Guide, and it's about S/S Trend Under The Sea. You can click here or the image below if you'd like to check it out. I struggle to come up with blog posts for MGG last month but I think I'm going to stick to writing what I know best; fashion!

  23. I have that dress and haven't worn it yet..eep, still with price tags and everything! Is yours a petite version? Mine feels really long on me :S xx

    ReplyDelete
  24. You look so cute!! It really is a lovely dress and well-worth having (I always love anything with lace). But I do know what I mean about the TopShop's quality vs prices.. it's such a great store in terms of finding cute things, but I often find the prices to be on the steeper side and that can really be a turn-off, especially since it doesn't always reflect the quality. x

  25. That dress is the prettiest darling I love it!

  29. I'm the same with Topshop... because of the prices it is now probably the last shop I buy from. I love a browse,, but an item has to be pretty darn special for me to want to pay for it in there!

    This really suits you though :-)

  30. I know what you mean about Topshop, I remember when it was as cheap as New Look :( (showing my age there) but your right about how the clothes are really good for us petite girls. I love Topshop for their jeans which I think are usually reasonably priced at around £40.00 but some of there dresses and tops are overpriced.

    I actually really like the visible zip detail, the dress is so perfect :) you look lovely.

  38. the dress is just beautiful Sarah and I love the pictures of you back turned.

    Know what you mean about Topshop, I begrudge some of their prices when the fabrics are often low grade and the quality of the whole garment is a bit suspect. But they are good for jeans for me and I seem to have gone down a dress size according to their sizing, so it makes me happy.

  39. Stunning outfit as usual, I love that you toughened it up a little with your jewellery and dark nails :) I really agree with you on Topshop, I love that they have the length that suits shorties like me but sometimes I feel like I'm paying a Topshop price for something that I could find in Primark for much less.

  63. the dress is stunning and looks great on you. I have never been a Topshop fan to be honest, I find the shops very unwelcoming.

  64. Totally agree with you about Topshop, I tend to avoid shopping their now as I definitely think it's overpriced!! That dress is really lovely though.

  67. that dress really is beautiful. i love the contrast of your dark nails against it too :)
    i feel the same about topshop, their Leigh jeans are the only ones that fit me properly and i love their make up, but everything else is just so over-priced! even if they have a bazillion fashion shows and loads of celebrities wear their clothes, i feel like topshop needs to remember it is still just a high street store! argh. x

  73. This is lovely, I wish I wasn't as clumsy as I am - I can't seem to wear white without spilling something on it!
    I also agree about Topshop, sometimes you get what you pay for, and I am guaranteed to find something I love every time I go in, but on other occasions you can find something just as good in Primark or New Look...

  77. This dress is just too pretty for words! I love the broderie anglaise detail on the front, and v-cut back is just dreamy, too :) And I know exactly what you mean about TopShop. They just opened in Canada and I nearly died when I saw the price point. I mean, it's TopShop! But they make such perfect sizes for us petite girls, it's hard to resist the appeal of a good fit, even if the quality isn't always there.

  80. It's so delicate and pretty. I agree with you about Topshop and I think some other high st stores are going the same way. £45 seems to be the standard price for a dress these days, that's more than I spend on petrol for the month!!

    ReplyDelete
  81. That dress is so gorgeous Sarah! Perfect for the Summer! I agree with Topshop, as much as I love it I can't really justify the prices anymore, some things are just far too overpriced!

  85. You look so gorgeous! I am in love with that dress as well. I agree that Topshop is a bit pricey. I still haven't bought anything from there yet. I guess I have never owned anything from there so I don't know anything about the quality, but that dress is totally worth whatever price you paid.
