I blogged about this French Connection dress back in August as it was heavily discounted down to £36 and I loved the print. John Lewis had my size in and with free delivery to my local Waitrose I took the plunge and ordered it. It's a classic shape with a dipped hem at the back and was so comfortable on that I kept it despite not having an occasion wear it. Fast forward nearly 3 months and it finally made it's debut for a 40th birthday bash. Along with, wait for it.... the Motorbike Insurance shop window. Never let it be said my husband thinks as he paps me. I give up!
Also making her debut on my blog is my wonderful mate who was eager to be featured - in all her glory! I had the giggles, it's not a great shot but it's real and she's now got her wish. (And yes, fancy dress was optional!).
The Dune shoes were a recent purchase - another discounted buy as there was extra off of them so they worked out at about £22 from House of Fraser. I have a real thing for suede shoes, they are just my favourite. I never used to be one for an ankle strap as I always found them uncomfortable but for some reason this last few years I can cope with them. I love the nude colour of these and the heel is brilliant - not too high. They still have them in grey for £20 in a size 4 and 5 if anyone's interested. The black and blue are full price at £69. I will insert the link here.
French Connection still have the dress available in black or orange for £60 however the green (which was the heavily discounted colour) is out of stock.
I kept everything simple as there was a lot of pattern going on with the dress. Just my little black Miu Miu clutch and some diamond earrings, that was it!
