My only criteria was that it was figure hugging (why hide it?) but also suitable to take me from the office all day, to going out in the evening. I had in my head the idea of a midi-dress, when I stumbled on this beauty in the Warehouse sale.
It was exactly what I was looking for. Good quality, figure flattering, neutral coloured and in my price range. It fitted perfectly and I was, understandably, pleased!
Thankfully, the weather turned out beautiful for the day which meant I didn't have to cover it up with a coat (hence the squinty faced photos). I paired it with my glamorous and yet practical gold Oushka bag and a pair of shoes from TU which I bought for last year's Christmas party.
I got lots of compliments on my new dress, probably as much because this look is a departure from my usual, as for the dress itself, but it was definitely a choice well made.
