I really need to start looking at prices before becoming obsessed with a piece. Case in point- this stunning vintage silk Givenchy Nouvelle Boutique gown. I'm perusing the new dresses on Nasty Gal when I come across this dress. Love at first sight then I see the price...$1200. The azure blue, the swirly silver print and the gold bead and rhinestone trim at the plunging neckline... I die. Whoever runs away with this beauty is a very lucky girl.

Wow!
Gorgeous dress - it looks like it would be really simple to make, if you can sew! As long as you find a similar fabric - a silver polka dot on sheer blue...the dress is essentially simple, with elastic at waist and cuffs, and you can find similar gold trim at the fabric store. Even an okay seamstress would probably be able to make one of these, no problem! (That is, if you want your own.) If you want Givenchy, then there's no substitute!:-)

Gorgeous! And that blue is so flattering. But that's how much I make in a month!

That price is ridiculous! I mean, the dress is great...but who can blow that kind of money on a dress?

It's nice but not for $1200 would I spend that much on that dress. Sorry.
