OOTD: Getting all fancy for anniversary times

Dress – River Island – £15 (sale) , Belt – Primark £3, Socks – Bebaroque – £10 (sample sale), Shoes – Primark – £6 (in the sale)

The boyshape and I celebrated our anniversary yesterday. Yup. It really has been more than 3 years since “Guys….I met this guy in the Catty.” Jeezo. Anyway we had a pretty chilled night. Paul cooked (kind of  – him trying to chop carrots is still one of the funniest/most desperate things I’ve seen to date) and just sat in watching fluffy films. Namely Beauty & The Beast because it is perfection. 

Safe to say I like any excuse to dress up and I’ve been looking for an excuse to wear my Bebaroque sheer socks forever – and I’m way too sensitive to the cold to wear them outside at the moment. Scored them in the Pop Up Sample Sale they had at Princess Square and they are pretty much my favourite thing ever. Pretty sure everything I’m wearing is sale. The leopard print heels were my idea of a sensible shoe due to a smaller heel but also not making me want to vom all over the place. They are still in stores now and are super comfy. I can truly think of worse ways to spend £6. 

I love the grey dress. Whenever I wear it I always think of Edith Head when she was designing for Vertigo and how grey on a blonde looks “odd” – as it washes out fairer complexions. That said – grey is one of my favourite colours to wear and makes a nice alternative from my “BLACK OR DIE” ethos. It’s become my go to dress when wanting to pull on something that makes me look a bit more polished (that isn’t black) and is so easy to style around.

Do you have any fail safe dresses?
