Personal Shopper: A Stunner for Cecilie

Cecilie writes: "My boyfriend invited me to the annual ball at his university, and I want to look stunning!;) So I`ve been looking everywhere for the dress by Vivienne Westwood Lana del Rey wore at the 2012 Brit Awards. It`s just amazing! Can you please help me find a cheaper version? And what does the original cost?? (If I were to spend my entire student loan on one dress -it would be it!) Many thanks!!"

Hi, Cecilie! You have great taste - that dress is fab! Unfortunately, you also have expensive taste, as the original is likely a few thousand dollars. (I couldn't find the exact one for a price check, but that's in line with other Vivienne Westwood gowns.) But the good news is that I found a few very similar dresses for well under $1K! I think that #1 is most like your dream dress, especially if you're able to wear the sleeves more off the shoulder than shown on the model, but the others have a similar feel. I'm sure you'll look stunning in whatever you wear. Have fun!

If I'm not shopping or working out, I'm planning a social gathering of some sort, ranging from a Big Lebowski Bash or a Stitch 'n' Bitch to an Evening of Cocktails and Crudités. Ask me about fitness, crafts, fashion, makeup, hostess gifts, good tunes, or my ultimate shopping victory: size 12 rhinestone and spike studded pumps for Vegas.

I think the big thing about the Westwood dress is the neckline! I vote for #5-- I think the neckline is the most similar (and the dress is fab)! Have a blast!
