I Want It! Jonathan Saunders Satin Bustier Dress

Valentine's Day is fast-approaching, and despite being single, I just can't quite bring myself to hate the holiday, even if it is 99% commercial trash. I just have a really deep appreciation of a really nice shade of pink or a flash of red lace, so in amongst the tackiness, I always tend to find something which catches my fancy at this time of year. And you really can't deny that this Jonathan Saunders creation is the perfect Valentine's day dress. Its bustier top and smooth satin finish make it super-sexy, but the length of the skirt adds a romantic touch. You also haven't seen the best part yet...

It has red lining! I think that's just the cherry on the cake. I do love a good surprise lining, because it's like a little treat for the wearer and the wearer alone; you should always dress first and foremost for yourself. However, despite being half price, this dress is still £447, a little beyond most of our budgets. I've been hunting for alternatives at the other end of the price scale, and it seems that only Jonathan Saunder has precisely this balance of sexy and romantic, but these two dresses from ASOS separately embody one each (and are much cheaper).
Satin Bodycon Dress by Ryan Odell £27.50
Little Mistress Floral Organza Dress £24

However you're spending Valentine's Day (personally I will be going with a group of friends to a Bridget Jones screening where we'll have wine, Chinese food, and chocolate), I hope it's a good one, and that you perhaps find your perfect romantic/sexy pink dress, even if it's just for your own satisfaction.

yes I love that dress - and I love that the inside is red. Reminds me of louboutin manicures actually.

This dress is fabulous, and I am glad you've shared the details about this dress here. I have to finish my EssayWritingLab paper right now, and once I've done that, I'll try to buy this dress for my wife.
