My advice is 2 fold, firstly 200 quid is far too much money, extortionate in fact, to spend on something that you don’t like, aren’t comfortable in and doesn’t flatter you. Clearly buying anything you don’t like is a waste of money it’s far more sensible to spend more and actually like your dress, not to mention if you choose to resell it, more univeraslly appealing/flattering styles will hold their value better even at a higher price. My second piece of advice is learn to care a hell of a lot less about what your family think about your spending, you are an adult, nobody forces them to give you money and it should not come with strings. My own mother is very comfortable and at times can be financially generous however there are always caveats and I have learnt over the years, especially since moving out of home and not being reliant on her that it is none of her business, I know it’s hard, I still struggle, but honestly imagine their reaction if you tried to dictate their spending, by enabling their control you’re basically agreeing that you don’t deserve agency or respect.
