£870 for a blouse??!!! FCUK that!

The minute I saw the new Chloe campaign, I fell heart-stoppingly in love with the lace blouse in the background; less so with the red trousers. Pinning it to my Pinterest was about as close as I’d come to ownership, and I was okay with that, especially when my “New In” email came from net-a-porter coolly informing me that the blouse in question was £870. 

 

A day or two later, having a wonderful girly day of catching up, no-carb-lunching, discussing the pleasure and pain of running, and shopping with my friend Steph on The Kings Road, I spied a very similar blouse in French Connection. It was £70ish which is a saving of, you know, about £800 or something. Which in my book is a saving worth making.

Weirdly, I can only seem to find it in the antique colour online in a sleeveless version, (there’s a sleeveless black one on the FC website) and the long sleeve in hot pink

I’m wearing it here with cobalt blue cords from H&M, over a nude vest from Primark.

    Bridget, there is a similar one to that with blush/pale peach sleeves in Dorothy Perkins for £25 iirc. I have it and it’s really nice quality.

    thanks ladies! Bridget that M&S one looks pretty but they just never do well on their photos do they? You’d think they’d know by now! Have you seen it in real life?
