No I don't particularly like it either.

At a whopping £15,100, this Balmain one-shoulder cocktail dress, designed by Christophe Decarnin, has been chosen by handbag.com as the most recession-unfriendly item for 2009.

A dress for people with more money than sense, otherwise known as wannabe celebrities, who don't care about how trashy they look as long as it's designer.

Or maybe I'm just bitter because my reporter wage won't stretch that far...

handbag.com fashion director Belinda White said: “The Balmain dress epitomises self-indulgence and extravagance at a time when most people are worrying about their finances.

"It appears that despite the price-tag and the state of the economy, some people can still afford to stick two fingers up to the recession.”

Other contenders were:
- Chanel Matrioshka handbag - £4,200

- Chanel pale pink quilted handbag - £2,400

- Christopher Kane scalloped silk dress - £2,136

- Giambattista Valli for Moncler Gamme Rouge jacket - £2,000

- Meadham Kirchhoff denim jacket - £1,715

The dress is pretty. Love it. Those price and brand name are not really for most of people.
