To my dear Fashion Fairy Godmother....
To my dear fashion fairy godmother,
Firstly, thank you so much for the little treasures I found at the warehouse sale recently! As you know black dresses have always been my favourite wardrobe item. I have well over 20 black dresses now! I need to ask you a little favour though....
I have never noticed Prada's designs before but the black lace pieces in the current collection have really caught my attention. While I was in Paris recently, I was lucky enough to try on the black lace dress that Christy Turlington (model on far right) and Claudia Schiffer is wearing in the picture above from their article with Vanity Fair.
The cost of the dress is about my 3 months salary.... Making it impossible for me to afford it. My petrol cost has doubled in the past 5 years. Ouch! But the lace is so beautiful. Entirely hand made in Italy is what the sales person told me.
So, I'm hoping you will be able to wave your magic wand and enable me to somehow get the dress as well as the skirt and jacket that Linda Evangelista is wearing (model second from right) at a price I can afford... 80% of like my Lanvin and Chloe dress would be great! They are timeless and classic pieces I could wear forever.
As you know, I am a very patient person. I also don't mind picking pieces up from the floor at warehouse sales.
Another option is that since it's my birthday on Monday (8th of September), maybe I could get it then?!
Ok .... Ok... I'm dreaming...
Actually, all I want for my birthday is Kinokuniya book vouchers. There is a long list of fashion books I want to add to my personal library so a whole heap of book vouchers would be just perfect! If everyone I knew gave me just a RM5 voucher, I would be able to buy a really nice book.
Til I find my next fashion bargain, take care!
