The Romantic White Lace Dress

February 2, 2012

I have learnt a very important lesson for shopping at shopbop or any popular online clothing sites, that is – as soon as I see something I absolutely LOVE, just forget about my monthly budget and get it straight away! Otherwise it will be sold out in a blink of an eye.  The Diane von Furstenberg Zarita Lace Dress was the lesson for me, it was on Shopbop a month ago, and I was trying to practice “wait till the next day, and get it if I am still thinking about it” tactic. And guess what, it was all gone the next day! I believe any shopaholic could relate to how frustrating that was. I had to wait a long time until it was restocked…relieved!




Diane von Furstenberg Zarita Lace Dress in White (available here), there are also the blue, nude, and black versions of it.

Such a beautiful dress – one that is worth blowing budget for. You look stunning.

This lace dress fits you perfectly, Reika! A beautiful outfit as always! <3

I totally know what you mean about the feeling that something you have been really wanting is unavailable at once. Very frustrating, right? And if people think I saved the money, they don't know me! Coz' I never fail to to look for /spend on something else in order to make up for the 'loss'. What about you, Reika? :p


Reika February 5, 2012 at 1:15 pm

Haha I am exactly like you Jess…there are ALWAYS a lot of things to buy, if I miss out on one thing, I pick a few other things to buy from my “endless wishlist”..:-P

You look fantastic! I’ve been looking for a white lace sheath and this is perfect! A shame it’s sold out again.. I will have to stalk the site for a restock shipment 😉

AMAZYING dress! Looks angelic on you! Yes, I also learnt things the hard way esp on Shopbop, the sizes fly out so quickly! On a diff note, love your review post on the silver COR soap. I purchased it using the 20% code and have been using it for 2 weeks now and i love it! Thanks R!


Reika February 5, 2012 at 1:16 pm
