Tba Jeannie Dress

When I was in Brighton over the weekend, I tried on a tba dress that I’d been eying up for some time. It was in the sale at Urban Outfitters, reduced from £160 to £80… I generally try exceptionally hard not to spend £80 on a dress, so walked away leaving it on the rack. I thought that I could probably buy it online if it were still on my mind later.

Fast forward a few days and it was still in my thoughts so, I decided to take a trip into Brighton again –  Not really for the dress, but mainly because it was a lovely day and I wanted some more time by the sea. Honest! If the dress still happened to be there then, that would surely mean it was meant to be.

Well, what do you know?! It was there and I decided I should unquestionably snap it up and take it away with me. Job. Done.

When I got home with the dress, I started to doubt myself again. Do I truly need it and will I get more wear from it than it is worth? It is now sitting in a bag, whilst I mull it over. I’m beginning to think that if it needs this much thought, then it’s obviously not the dress for me. In fact, I am now sick to death of thinking about it and returning it may be the only option. Maybe…. AHHHH!

What do you think of the dress? Should I keep it?

Do you ever go through this much indecision when buying clothes?!

    Firstly – WHAT? Why would you return this? Treat yourself.

    Secondly – YES, I most definitely go through this much indecision, but you know what keeps me warm at night? The thought that I saved £80. And then I work out how many times I need to wear said item so that the cost per wear is acceptable, and inevitably I end up thinking “well, I really only need to wear it 3 times to get my money’s worth and I am totally going to wear it more than that!”.

    You went back for it…that counts for something, right? x

    Yes, I am crazy indecisive! £80 is a steep price but I’m really digging the pattern and pleats. It’s like the perfect modern cut dress you always hope to find sifting through vintage racks but never do. I hope you keep it!

    Have you tried it on and did it make you look and feel good in it? If so, keep it!

    Keeeep it!!! I myself go through the same dilemma when i buy something new, but i have criteria it has to pass, will it go with many things i already have? Can i wear it in diff ways?! Ie tights and boots, wedges etc, is it worth the money? Im sure you are prob sickv thinking about it…normally if i really love something i will wear it asap…if its stil in the bag then maybe you dont love it enough!?!?!?

    I’m going to make a decision tomorrow – I’m not in the mood for decisions today!
