High Street: Primark Seaside Print Dress

Remember when Carey Mulligan wowed the crowds in her dainty littl Prada number?  What was special about it?  It was sharply tailored, it was a shift dress (all others at the time had arms), it was painted and it was a beach scene.  Now, take a look at the below dress and explain to me why you wouldn't spend £11 on it? 

Oh, and the Prada one was £8,000.

I absolutely LOVE Carey Mulligan, she has such a classic and graceful style. I'm so glad you featured her! I love the dress that you found too...that rush of finding a good bargain that's almost too good to be true is addicting, isn't it?? Really glad I discovered your blog!

Yes it is a lovely dress but at £8 what sort of payment do you think went to the people that made the dress?

Any chance of a fair trade alternative?

Not for £11 sadly - but I think Primark are getting better. There was a documentary on it on my flight back from the US about how they pay a better wage for people and also invest in the development of the villages of their factories. You never know with these things, but it does sound better than it was (which is something) xx
