Gok Episode 2

So yesterday afternoon I made an impulse buy on Trademe for $40.



I'm regretting it immensely, especially when Blair saw the photo, he said it looks like an Asian dressing gown. Then I showed him the photo of the other one:



And he loves it!! I must admit, when you see them next to each other there is a distinct difference, one screams stylish and the other just doesn't.

One of my best mate's lives in Wellington, I may just ask her if she has a minute to go in and have a wee squizz at the ts14+ one, and if it's all it looks then I might ask her to buy it and send it to me, I mean surely I could pay over the phone with my credit card?? I may just relist the other one on Trademe, along with quite a few other tops etc that I have sitting in my wardrobe that just ain't me anymore and make a few dollars to offset the cost.

What ya reckon, and forget money, because Blair is earning $508 in extras next week for going away so I am fine for pingas.

Love the second one!!! Go for it! I reckon you will get a lot of use with that outfit.

The first one? Nah - list it back on TradeMe. I've bought a few lemons of there.

Jules, I love both but you can make the 1st one work. I think its actually going to look good on you as an apple with boobs. Wear them over black 3/4 footless leggings with a nice necklace and there is the funky look you want. You could even wear it to the wedding over 3/4 pants with some strappy heels.

I'd ring and check their returns policy, then if it's all okay get the dress sent out.

Ok, I'm here now! LOL

I'm totally with Linda. As soon as I saw the first one I thought "Gluten Free Geisha". I could see you wearing it for sure. It's the right cut/ shape for you and I'd funky it up with a teal necklace Wear with black leggings or stockings and heels if you think you can get away with it.

The second is fabulous!

Wait and see what the first one looks like on first... sometimes you can see a dress ... think it's totally gorgeous then when you put it on is is crap! I would say get the one from Ts14+ ... but make sure you can return it if it looks sucky on you.
ANd yes, black leggings and some black boot/shoes would look great.

Tracy said...

I agree with Chris, the Trade Me one may look just perfect on with the right shoes, hair & make up etc it may be "the one"

Kate said...

Absolutely love the first one, hands down!

I like them both. I would definitely wait and see what the first looks like before rushing into spending a lot more when the first option would have been more then fine.

I've bought a few lemons off tm, but then been pleasently surprised at times too and just received a really cute bright pink short waisted cardi (single button) that I scored for $4 (still with tags) it was $1 reserve and I would have happily paid quadruple+ plus more for it. Didn't look overly great in the pic, but its CUTE and I'm really pleased with it, so hopefully you are pleasently surprised too.

And lol at the comment regarding the 'rogering' lol I will show it to Mr N as he will thinks its hilarious.

I really love the first one, I think with a pair of teale earings and a bracelet you would rock it.

just let me know. I totally agree with Linda's summing up around Number 1.

Cheers
Shona.

I like them both. The top one would be smart with some nice slacks that have a flare to the bottom of them.

woohoo... I also love the second one as they are my colours...
Try the first one on with accessories and take a photo... we will tell you how it looks for sure..

I think concensus is almost on the second one...its been ages since i actually wore a dress...mainly jeans and skirts and tops... I seem to be slowly losing weight without really trying for the first time in my life...the doc did alergy testing so no wheat flour ever, no oats etc...right with corn and rice...makes a huge difference to how i eat these days... sugars down too even fruit sugar...still a bit larger than all my sisters but not so much nowdays. I love that second dress...maybe I should go shopping soon!!!!

JustJo said...

Well, I am totally biased cos I actually have the first one hanging in my wardrobe as I type, and I LOVE IT! I wear it all the time over black bootleg style pants and heels.
Good luck wih your decision :)
