It's time for the Sunday fashion confession

In the past few weeks, I have been contemplating the gorgeously aerial ruffle tops in the Isabel Marant Summer 2014 collection, wondering whether I would dare to spend almost £500 on a cottton top... The truth is, with Little Monsieur's school fees to pay for until well after 2028, and some house maintenance bills coming our way far more regularly than I'd like, well I can't really justify it.

So imagine my joy when I found that Mango had a whole collection of tops that can only have been inspired by the French designer's boho vibe. Enter this gorgeous cotton ruffle and chiffon tee-shirt.

This looks absolutely perfect, with very sweet alternating panels of light-weight cotton, and some sweet ruffles around the sides. At under £20, I ordered the dark grey and the white version... and still haven't spent close to 10% of what the IM one would cost. Fashionomics!

Sometimes it is so hard to justify paying so much for an article of clothing, shoes or a handbag. I look at my Kelly bag or Dior bag and think I could have taken a wonderful trip for the amount of money I spent. Great find on the Mango blouse and Happy Bithday wishes to your hubby.

Hi Mary! My thoughts exactly, though I'd argue a Kelly is a timeless investment piece so it will never lose its value ;)
