My Big Mistake...Mondrian YSL inspired

I'm back from London. I attended Kerry Taylor's auction on October 27. As the lots whizzed by I recognized a Simpson of Picadilly YSL inspired Mondrian dress circa 1965. The auction estimate was £150-250. I thought to myself "small world" I had seen that dress a few months ago and thought that it was pretty but the price was somewhere near £200 so I didn't buy it. Big mistake- the dress sold for a hammer price of £3,300!
