One Dress, Two Ways

This dress was a complete bargain in Primark, I think I paid £13 for it and have since seen it on sale. Incredible. It's one of those great dresses that can be worn in so many different ways, layered over a shirt, with heels or just as it is. The canary yellow belt came with it but worn with a gold metal plated belt, the whole look would be a lot more luxe.

At first I paired it with my favourite sky blue brogues and because it was a cold day, chucked on my faux fur River Island coat. On reflection, there's a little too much going on with the primary colours to go with fur so I swapped the brogues for my studded boots instead.

Then I decided to try it with my fail-safe camel trench coat which I've been pretty much living in again this Winter. CanNOT believe it only cost me £30 last year in H&M and was a total leaving-the-shop-OMG-how-did-I-not-spot-this-before-get-back-in-the-queue-moment.

I prefer the second look, it just seems more 'right'. Thanks to the early evenings this was an attempt at getting successful photos indoors - I don't think I'll be trying it again...

I went with a top knot - do you plan your outfits around your hair or your hair around your outfit?
