    Hiya,

    So I have posted before regarding people wearing 2 dresses blabla and my dilemma was I couldn't find the 2nd (1st dress I wanted) well now I have and it is a **[email protected] c0utur3 dress, satin bottom with a lace neck/top. So here's the issue. There are no shops in London that sell the dress. The closest are a couple hours drive and the dress is £1400
    I have literally scoured the Internet for this dress but as it is 2013 collection T152065 no one seems to have it! I have considered buying it second hand but literally can't find it!!
    So, do I drive the two hours and pay £1400 even though I've already bought another dress ( a **[email protected] 50t3rr0) I'm not in a position to take the dress I have back but I don't know if I can justify paying another £1400 on a dress but then I don't want to regret not wearing the one I want!!! What do I do? I can't even find one who is selling it.... I'm having a dilemma

    Can you put a deposit on the dress, sell the one you have, will end up with a bit of a loss, then put that towards the dress?

    If I'm honest, the fact that you are posting makes me think that you aren't 100% on having the 2. Plus if you don't have the case, £1400 is a lot of money for a second dress.

    Sorry, I may have missed your other post. Why do you want 2 dresses? Can you not wear your original dress all day?

    Just seen GFs post and understand a bit more now!

    I would definitely look to sell your original dress. you may not get full price for it but you can still recoup some of the cost then put it towards your dream dress.

    I think if you really wanted the second dress you would be happy with the drive and the cost. Is it something that you know suits you? ie have you tried on anything similar?

    I must say I had a wobble the other week with my dress. But I tried it on again and it is lovely, I don't know what I was worried about. Is that an option with the first dress?
