Got that Monday morning feeling? Suddenly the week ahead seems extremely long, and the weekend behind us already seems like a distant memory…

But hey, why not cheer yourself up by new purchase? They do say shopping is therapy.

Recently it can not be denied the recent wave of Chanel’s Optical Illusion dress to hit the red-carpet.

Created by Chanels mastermind, Karl Lagerfeld, the dress is cut in a boxy shape to give the appearance of a crop top and skirt but features a tight-fitting middle panel.

But if you are just a mere mortal like the grand majority of us, why not give this Topshop version a go? Available in lilac, mint green, and white hitting all the right Spring/Summer 14 ‘Pastels’ trend.

Or perhaps this white scalloped version is more to your liking?
