Have you ever encountered items that you cannot decide if you hate or love? Sometimes it is really quite impossible to distinguish these two strongest of emotions, and it is often a safe idea to check with a friend or family member to see if they think it is lovely, or whether they are convinced that your clothes taste has just died and gone to hell. This dress from Jean Paul Gaultier is one such example. One one hand, the luxury mesh fabric is quite dreamy and clearly top end stuff. On the other hand, it is over-the-top, dramatic, a little bit silly. The pattern, in my opinion, works when on it’s own as a strapless Jean Paul Gaultier dress – but with the coordinating top added it is too much, and would overpower anything but the most willowy frame.
That said, this designer dress is currently a real bargain, with a starting price of $9.99 – and for a Gaultier dress that cost $2475 originally, the difference is quite astounding. That said, there is a reserve (one of my eBay pet hates), so I would be surprised if it goes for a teeny tiny amount!
