lust: charles anastase ‘amelie’ dress

I’m currently lusting over this Charles Anastase dress. The cut, the colour (my lilac obsession is still going strong), the Charles Anastase-y-ness of it all… so dreamy. However, at a cost of a smidge over a grand, I think I’ll just stick with attempting to make my own version this dress.

    Oh wow, that is beautiful! If you don't have much success, they have a similar one for a fraction of the price in Whistles. I'm not sure if you have it over there, but you should be able to find the brand online!

    That dress is absolutely perfect, and isn't the colour just the best? x

  7. DIY definitely sounds like an acceptable alternative. The dress is absolutely lovely, I can see why you love it so much! I adore the colour.
    Also – thanks for introducing me to a designer I'd never heard of before!
