I’ve always dreamed of finding that ‘perfect Little Black Dress’
I thought I found it for a mere £9.99 in H&M today but when I got to the dressing room it just didn’t fit right.
I had places to be so had to leave the strapless, shiny black pleated bargain behind with the shop assistants. Feeling down I moved to leave the shop but stopped in my tracks near the exit… By Jupiter! I had found it!
It was wrinkly, not in my size and made of fake leather! I had to buy a size up but it means it will be perfect for casual winter layering (for the Amazing Radio office) whilst not being a too tight and ‘fetish’ looking. Once off the hanger and on my body the wrinkles disappeared and gave an almost smooth look.
It’s the perfect day-to-night dress too. Here I toughen it up a little with my Peacocks grey hiking boots.
I quite like it with my red heels too; there’s plenty a pair of shoes that would work with this dress which is why I adore it so.
The flash of my camera has made the underskirt of this dress look a lot shinier than it actually is. It reminds me of a Peacocks dress I saw in a magazine (but it’s a lot nicer in the lace detailing department and £8 cheaper.) I have to wear it with a belt because the empire line design into the full skirt is so unflattering I was tempted to take it back. The swift addition of the belt made me have a sudden change of heart.
I think that the leather look dress might be better for The Union Choir gig, and the crochet dress for my first Get Frank gig on the 25th November – but again, I’m not sure.
Help me out? Which one for which occasion?!
