French Connection Ozlem Dress: Splurge vs Save

Hey Ladies,

So I fell head over heels in love with a dress, as soon as I saw it I thought Christmas party! Sadly I saw the price tag & wanted to cry! £250 is really not in my budget for one party dress even if the drinks are free on the night and so finding a suitable alternative was my goal, sadly it may be a great alternative for someone else because I don't think my GG boobies will fit in a size 14 dress but I thought it would be useful to post if anyone is looking for a killer Christmas party dress.


It may be a tad early for the holly but it's only a month til my Christmas office party so a girl needs to get planning & now apparently saving for the French Connection one! It MUST be mine! I'm going to hold my breath until someone buys it me, it always used to work when I was a kid.

Is anyone else planning their outfits or am I super early? (I've already bought half the gifts for the big day, what is wrong with me!? I usually go out on Christmas Eve in a last minute dash for gifts!)

'Tis the season to be organised apparently!
