Love this look for less idea! I'm making a dress similar to the Sretsis one in brown for a friend but black or navy is most certainly next in line!

That is so cool ! Except the Zara coat is actually a cardigan, and the satchel is counterfeiting, as well as the Modcloth dress =)
And I really HATE counterfeiting (well,in that case the modcloth dress is actually cuter than the TBC one, but still)

The Zara "coat" is actually more or less like a sweater. It's nowhere near as warm as the coat from topshop. So in the end the Zara one is definitely overpriced and a lot less cute in person :(

Gloria - Haha yeah, everybody seems to be doing their version of that bag :s I haven't seen the Portmans one in person yet so can't comment on the quality. Personally, I'd love to get an original one day! x Sushi

Hannah - Thanks, Hannah, I always have my trusty hand sanitizer on me x Sushi

angelaseeangelablog - I hope you post photos of that on your blog when it's done, I'd love to see the finished dress :)

Youna - Not as cool as your sarcasm :) I'm not saying everyone should run out and buy all the ripoffs. I have a number of these original pieces and I'm sure the quality and design outmatch those of the inspired versions. However, I know what it's like to be a student/not employed full time so I thought I would share these with my readers as some may really like the things I wear but are unable to afford/find them.

April - I think it would look great in bright pink, especially for Spring! x Sushi

Betty - Aw that's a pity! And a bit misleading how they're calling it a coat when it's actually a cardigan :s Unfortunately, we don't have Zara here so I haven't been able to see it in person x Sushi

cait harri & MMM - Thanks both of you! Glad you like it :)

appLe - I think you have to visit a Primark store to buy them, or you could try looking on eBay!
