The dress was actually a very incidental purchase in a charity shop which I didn’t really think I’ll wear more than once. It has generated more compliments than all of my wardrobe all-together the first time I wore it so I decided to keep it for a while. I tone it down with simple heels & a tote for work. I recently wore it with sandals and cat-eye sunglasses to Imelda May and that worked too. I now believe that if dressed down with appropriate accessories, every dress can work for you.
Here, I let it do it’s job in being pretty & fancy and I went all dressy with boxy clutch and satin heels.
