The sky outside is wet and grey, so begins another weary day.


Hello, old faithful.

This is the ultimate wear-anywhere dress, and it has the added bonus of being very floaty and forgiving - especially sans belt. I wore it to work on Wednesday along with grey tights and my much adored Primark booties, which are the most comfortable and warm heels I have ever owned. I've worn them almost every day this week. You can't really see them in these photos, but trust me, they are ace.


Dress: New Look
Tights & boots: Primark

I love this dress so much, I went back and bought it in two other patterns. In fact, this dress is so amazing that I lent it to my friend Sha once, and SHE loved it so much that she bought it in three other patterns. It's a New Look number, but one of those cuts that is a total winner - there have been at least six variations of it over the last couple of years.

The funny thing is, if you asked me what my favourite dress was, I probably wouldn't even think of this one. But it's probably one of the most worn items in my wardrobe. Also, it goes perfectly with my favourite ever belt and my vast collection of silver jewellery. Is it just me who insists that grey has to go with silver? It's one of my self-imposed fashion rules that I find it hard to break.

Oh, and the hair? Them curls are natural.

  3. I love it when you find a dress that has an amazing cut. I have no shame in buying the same dress in different colours either. Some people would think it was a bit odd, but they've obviously never felt the joy of finding such a perfect dress!

  13. It is a really lovely dress and it looks gorgeous on you! I have a dress which cost me £7 from Tesco and I have worn it so much that it has literally fallen apart, I have it in a floral print and just black so other people do do it! :) I love your curly hair too- much neater than my curls !

  15. ooh i am happy to report i have exactly the same dress! it really is a marvel - my sis has it in a different print as well. can't beat it, for being so versatile and for being a little more than flattering (it makes me really happy about my figure when I wear it)... i think my favourite way to wear it is with a leather jacket - had some of my weirdest nights out with it that way ;)
