Save or Splurge: Erdem Argenta dress VS Fever Scribble Ruffle dress

The minute we saw the Erdem Argenta dress on the My Theresa website we were reminded of Fever Designs’ Scribble Ruffle dress. Ok, the colour schemes differ slightly (although The Fashion Police are inclined to think Fever’s cornflower blue and poppy red palette a little easier to wear), and the Scribble dress forgoes the contrasting shoulders in favour of a ruffle bib, but essentially, they’re distinctly similar in shape and style.

The difference, of course, comes in the cost. The Erdem Argenta dress from My Theresa will set you back a tidy €849,00 (approx £728).  Meanwhile, the Scribble Ruffle dress from Fever Designs is a more conservative £54.99.

So, fair readers: what do you say: would  you save or splurge on a dress like this?

    Ugh, they both look like they’re made of dropcloths to me. No thanks.

    Save! The cheaper dress is much prettier, plus I wouldn’t spend that much money on a casual dress.

    Not really a fan of either dress, but I’d definitely pick save. It has a much more flattering shape.

    I like both of them! They are very original but I have to say the first one appeals to me more.

    I would go save since I much prefer the colours, but I realised that it had been photographed on some kind dress-form or similar, thus giving it shape and making it instantly more pleasing to the eye than the other which was just photographed flat. So I’ll reserve my judgement for now.
