Fern Britton's Body Con/Bandage Dress . . Watch

    As the title says - did anyone see Fern on This Morning (her last show and b'day) in a bright blue/cyan colour body con/bandage dress?? the dress was absolutely lovely and she managed to pull it off well.

    Anyway . . does anyone have a clue of where the dress might be from? . . .

    EDIT: Here is a few snippets of the dress - I have just realised its by Herve Leger = expensive! But if anyone knows of an alternative, that is suited for student budget then please do lemme know.

    EDIT2: Please do not suggest Primark as I hate that shop. No offence to those who shop in there all the time.

    That's still a little pricey though.

    Ooo that's nice, but tad on the pricey side. But will keep it in consideration.

    I have a body con dress from Oasis, think it was about £60, and it's very, very nice. But, I also have two (one in cobalt blue, the other in back) from Primark, and they are also lovely. They fit very well and make my figure look lovely. They are like £12 each. Obviously not as nice as the others shown, but it's a cheap alternative.

    There are some of a similar style in Primark, but they're different colours. Not sure how much they are though. :p:

    Uh, don't make a fuss about pricey dresses then. People suggest dresses, you say "£££!", they suggest Primark, you turn your nose up... :confused:

    Errr I'm not making a fuss. I have no issues with buying expensive dresses - infact have got some pricey pieces in my wardrobe which I v rarely wear on nights out up town because they will get ruined. Something between £20 - 40 is what I am willing to spend on a dress to wear up town (so long as the quality is good, which IMO Primark does NOT match up to that). Fair play to those who shop in Primark but its not to my taste. Got things from there before, got one wear of it, before it went to **** - so its why I do not bother.

    Thank you!

    Im not stuck up or anything like that, I just do not see the point in wasting £££ all the time in a place where the quality is poor. I'd rather spend a decent amount on something where I'll get a good wear out it before I can say ''its time for the bin or charity shop''. IF Primark quality was good, then I'd go in there, but unfortunately its not from my previous experiences.
