Pre-Fall Outfit (4): LBD à la Alaïa

I’ll probably never buy any Alaïa dress at retail price, even when they are on sale, I’ll think twice before splurging. But luckily, we have the most wonderful copycat in the city: COS (Copy Of Style. No, just kidding, it is actually called Collection Of Style, haha). I tried on this Alaïa inspired LBD a while ago and felt in love with it. However, I didn’t take it home because I prefer loose fit clothing to tight, body-con ones.

We passed by COS the other day and I mentioned the LBD to my hubby, he suggested that we go in together so he can help me make the decision. It sounds pretty nice, why not? So after trying it on in front of him, I have to have it because, according to him, it looks fabulous on me (he certainly hasn’t noticed that I was holding my breath all the time, lol).

In the end I did buy the dress coz it requires a flawless body, a good motivation for me to keep going to the gym. :-D

LBD: COS, necklace: Miu Miu, boots: See by Chloé.

    You know what? I’ve walked past Cos a number of times whenever I get the chance to go to London and not once have I ventured in. You’ve given me a reason to now. This is lovely! I’ve tried on an Alaia at a consignment store. Even at secondhand price, it was way more than what I’m willing to pay.

    birkingal, you really should. I’ve got tons of stuff from COS. It is my fave store here.

    iilns, sure, let me show you next time~~ ^_*

    Gaelle, thank you for your advice. I too like the fact that it can be easily dressed up and down.

    Sweet purchasing experience! The hourglass shape of Alaia is so flattering–it’s worth holding the breath a little for it:)

    Looking forward to the photos!
    Btw, I saw that Shang Xia has opened its doors in Shanghai, their assortment looks quite interesting, but a friend told me that the prices are at the same level as the parent company.

    I am not surprised that they are selling ShangXia at the same price level, the image/concept/products have to keep up the standard of Hermès group.

    It’s just a strange feeling that the heritage of Chinese culture and the true spirit of Asian craftsmanship are now brought to spotlight by a foreign company. Well, at least the AD is Chinese.;-)

    Happy weekend my friend!
