Striped Shift Dress: Matalan (recent, not online) | Coat: Miss Selfridge (similar here)
I haven't been in Matalan for ages but I wanted a snoop of the home ware last week and inevitably found myself in the clothing section. I've mentioned on here before that I really resent buying office-y clothes - work stuff just isn't fun, but it's got to the point where I've barely anything to wear in the mornings. Early mornings are hard enough - ain't nobody got time for that. So when I spotted this black and white striped dress, I thought it would be the perfect in-between dress that can be worn in and out side of work. It has two small gold zips at each side with pockets, but I actually cut these off because I felt like they were adding too much bulk to the sides. The material's thick and holds its shape well, not bad for only £14! There's so many different ways to wear it - it looks lovely with my burgundy patent shoes too or with my favourite coral coat from last Winter. I found another bargain when searching for a similar one to link - this little number from New Look is only £20!
Sorry for the uninteresting background in these pics - these were taken today while we were out and about, in between the snow and rain. We spent the morning sorting out boring mortgage-y stuff, and the afternoon sorting out all the fun decorating stuff. I was like in a kid in a sweetie shop in Ikea - that place is like heaven to me!
Hope you're all having a good week so far!
Have you picked up any bargain dresses recently?
