Would you ...

a) pay £2,200 for this Matthew Williamson Hero beaded dress, or

b) Pay £1,250 for this Lume ruffle dress also by Matthew Wilson. Personally, I can't decide which is worse. Net-a-porter I'm disappointed in you!

On the plus side, I'm in love with these Miu Miu Stone embellished flats also on the website (albeit at a whopping £250)

The Dress

Oh, lifes cruel. I finally find the perfect dress for the upcoming summer and its sold out! The dress is the 50's style dress from Kate Moss's Spring Summer Collection, in the green colour. I've hunted high and low but to no avail. I'm skeptical of eBay (the dress is priced at £45 yet I've seen one on eBay for £100+) too, especially as I never got the chance to try the dress on in the size I need. At least if you order off the website you can take it back to the store for a refund.

New top

I went shopping yesterday and amongst other things, I got this top from Topshop for £18 which I plan to wear to a party next week.

I've got some cream Mary Jane shoes but am not sure whether to wear shorts and tights, jeans, or cropped white trousers. Suggestions anyone?

Elizabeth and James

I've just been looking at Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's new collection, Elizabeth and James (here) and its great! How amazing are those high waisted black trousers and the orange dress? Mary Kate and Ashley can do no wrong in my eyes. Like Alexa Chung, they really work that laid back, effortless look. It only works on certain people though - if I tried it I'd just look messy!
