hang on a sec…

Dress: Thrifted. Boots: Jeffrey Campbell (A similar version is available to buy here).
I got this Pucci inspired dress a few months back while thrifting and had to re-post it now when a couple of nights ago, I stumbled across Rihanna in it too. My original post is here.
It’s considered a bit rude to ask what someone paid, but what the heck; I am wondering what it retailed for Rihanna or her stylist (on the rare occasion that it was not a freebie).

ps. Blogger competition update. I was contacted by the online mag editor to inform me that I came close to being the winner but was beat by a few more votes. Ah well. Win some you lose some : -) Thank you anyway for those who did vote! K. x

    Ha! What would she think if “common” people like us could get the same outfits for cheaper?! You wear it much better, Karen, and can afford all the accessories that go with it without breaking the bank.

    I wonder if her stylist bought it for super cheap and then charged her a shit ton for it.

    Wow, how cool is that! I think you need to contact Rihanna now and tell her that her stylists came pretty close to makeing sure she was the only one with such dressm but she lost by a few bucks… lol jk Congrats on being nominated and being so close to winning in that mag thing still! I remeber you mentioned being the only one from the UK/USA, so I guess it’s pretty cool you got that far!

    I’m going to have to echo previous sentiments and say that it looks better on you. You’re… leggier, so it works.
