Happy Saturday! I know it's not Friday, but after having a bit of drama yesterday with the boyfriend that meant I didn't have time to blog my 'Friday Frock' post so here it is today:
Today's frock was a little gem that I found after some post- Aussie event shopping with the lovely Tabitha and Dani in Oxford Street's River Island:
As any shopaholic knows, sale-shopping is essentially a sport - and a vicious one at that! There was shoving, clambering over one another, snatching items off the hangers from the grasps of another shopping - it sounds like a slightly tame version of the Tributes at the Cornucopia (Yeah, I am a Hunger Games geek).
Luckily, I avoided this bloodbath when finding this cute, hounds-tooth skater dress discarded away from the dress section! There was only one left and that was a sign. I couldn't ignore a sign, could I?!
|Dress: River Island; Tights: M&S; Belt: Jane Norman; Cardigan: New Look; Sequin pumps: New Look.|
I love the style of skater dresses - the shift style top, with a mini full skirt that gives it that vintage feel with a modern twist. With the hounds-tooth pattern, it just added to this feel as it looked like something that had been transported out of Joan's wardrobe from Mad Men, with just a shortened hem-line.
The best part about this little beauty is that it was 12:12... £12 and a size 12! With weight-loss being one of my big goals for this year, I was super excited to be able to fit comfortably into a size 12 by River Island's standards - wooooooo, its all paying off!
