Whoops, sorry… wrong Oasis.
Is it just me or has Oasis always been this expensive? I used to love Oasis when I was a student (and curiously, I had so much more money to waste as a student than I do now. And I did much less work (course work and paid work) back then too…
But after an Oasis hiatus (try saying it quickly 3 times…) because their collections got a bit too prim and dull, they’re back in the game with cute prints, colourful florals and puffy prom dresses. But it seems their prices have shot up a bit too, and now I have to play that annoying game of actually considering purchases before making them… Am I going to wear it much? Is it worth it? Do I really like it, or just quite like it? (generally the kind of thoughts that you never make in Primark despite completely wasting a ton of money a year in there…).
So here are a few things that I’m currently eyeing up and contemplating:
I do really like this, but I’m looking for a dress or 2 for some upcoming summer weddings, and the colour of the dress means I’d definitely have to wear tights, so perhaps it’s not so suitable..? (These are the tedious thoughts I’m forced to have when a high street shop moves into a slightly higher price bracket…)
Good shape, nice waist, but are the shoulder straps a bit too thick?
I love the colours on this dress, and it’s also got a great full skirt, but it’s cut very generously meaning that the fit was awful. It doesn’t come in a smaller size meaning I’d have to have it taken in, and I’m not convinced that I love it enough to pay for alterations on top of the price.
Fab, demure neckline and I’m always a fan of pinky peachy colours but is the double bow at the neck and the waist a bit too twee? Don’t really think I want to turn up to a wedding looking like Charlotte from SATC… or worse, Charlotte’s ex mother in law Bunny McDougal.
Obviously not a wedding outfit contender, but being an exercise dodger, and therefore the owner of bad circulation, I’m always cold and therefore love a cardigan (I’m such a gran…(!)). I’ve got a stack of cardigans in all shapes, sizes and colours. Should I pay £40 for another cardigan to add to the collection? Or should I just do a bit more exercise?
