I can't tell you all my secrets..

Sequin Collar: H+M
I needed something a little more work-y than my regular day to day outfits, to deliver a training course. OK, so not exactly corporate wear, but it's a step in that direction. I'm never quite sure that I'm the right shape for pencil dresses and don't often feel confident in them, so this is a definite step outside of the box in more ways than one.

I'd wanted to wear red shoes with the navy, but could only find these pink ones when I looked - must get more organised! - so I went with that and dug out this cute sequin collar necklace.

In other news, my Twin Peaks obsession rages on. It's possible I bought a pair of shoes the other day which Audrey would approve of. I'm not sure what I'll do when I finish the season!

Cooper: Audrey, you're a high school girl. I'm an agent of the FBI. 
Audrey Horne: So, do you want me to leave or what? 
Special Agent Dale Cooper: What I want and what I need are two different things, Audrey. 

Annoyingly, he talks such sense!

  3. This dress is gorgeous on you Char! You are definitely the right shape for pencil dresses, it looks stunning! I'm definitely tempted by it now - you are so bad at doing this to me, but I have an ASOS order already on its way today, so I can't exactly put in another!!

    1. I do like the length, just not sure about the fact it's so tight!

  7. I think the silhouette looks perfect on you Char and I love the decorations on your wall behind you - I'm a bit obsessed with how everyone styles their own places as I'm at that stage where moving out is becoming a maximum priority! Also, Twin Peaks love - that's one of my favourite quotes from the series, but I need to sit down and properly watch it as I've only ever caught bits and pieces but what I saw, I loved. - Tasha xxx

    1. Thanks, I think it goes so well with pink or red. Red and navy are like my fall back nautical colours.

  9. You look so chic, Char! You definitely suit pencil skirts; you have the perfect shape for them! I wish I could wear them but I look awful in them and anything that's figure-hugging around my hips and thighs. xx

    1. Aw, thank you. I'm not sure I do have the shape for them but thankfully this one is a size or so too big so not too tight.
