Coat: Kate Spade
I can barely believe how long I've had this dress before getting around to wearing it. I think I bought it in the ASOS pre-Christmas sale in 2013, thinking that I'd wear it to an Xmas party. I then ended up wearing something else and it's been sitting around unloved ever since.

A friend came over the other day as she needed to try on potential dresses to borrow for an upcoming ball and whilst turfing some options out of the wardrobes for her, I rediscovered this one. I lost no time and wore it to the theatre that very evening.

It's silk and organza and it just feels so very perfect on - ever so princessy, I guess. I teamed it with my ever-impractical Kate Spade tinsel coat and black shoe boots and the black clutch bag I had to buy in Bristol when my other one fell apart during the day.

A fairly simple outfit all things considered, but I liked it.

  1. *snorts* Only you could wear those killer heels and describe this as a "fairly simple outfit"!! Great dress and your hair is glorious.

    1. Haha, I guess maybe it's not? I don't think I did anything to my hair - it has a mind of it's own.

    1. I know - I'll be sure to wear it more now, I've had a little clear out of my wardrobes.

    1. Thanks - I'm never sure about shoe boots and whether they make my legs look better or worse!
