Dress: Pure Collection

Belt: Glassons

Shoes: Chie Mihara


This is definitely the most snuggly dress in my repertoire – made of 100% cashmere it was a ridiculous indulgence from Pure Cashmere. I bought it at the end of 2008 and had mercifully blanked from my mind how much it cost though I can remember having to cross several more affordable pieces off my Lust List in order to rationalise it.

For curiosity’s sake I looked up that post from two years ago, and it turns out the dress cost me $406 which is a price that still leaves me a bit breathless. Interestingly though, looking at the items I didn’t buy made me realise that it was the right decision to splurge on a good quality dress that I’ve worn countless times since then.
