AUTOGRAPH PRINT DRESS, NO ACCESSORIES NEADED


Hi Everyone
I thought I would share with you the dress that I wore to the fashion show last week. I bought this shirt dress from Marks and Spencer (Autograph) in the sales and found it a n easy choice to wear, what with the travelling, being comfortable and still looking decent by the time I got to the show.....



The dress lived up to it's expectations, it didn't crease at all and because it's quite a busy print, no accessories needed here. Does it get any easier?


I just partnered it with my suede bag and knee high boots (I can walk forever in them) Very sunny but really I'm freezing by the way!!


The dress does have a tie belt, which I have tied round the back rather than tie right round. So it's a straight drop in the front and slightly gathered at the back



I love the piping detail around the front of the dress, this just finishes it off nicely


Just thought I'd throw this shot in. I meant to take a view from the back (tut tut) As I said I tied it to the back. I think this made the dress look more stylish. Tied in the front it just looked a little mumsy 

Dress = Autograph Marks and Spencer (Similar HERE )
Suede bag = River Island
Knee high boots = Aldo

XO LAURIE

  8. Great style. I love wearing dresses because I'm useless at co-ordinating separates and also tend to pear-shapedness so have trouble finding pants I feel good in. Oasis is one of my favourite shops, love the dress you've featured from them :)

  12. You can even wear it as an overcoat. I didn't even notice the piping until you mentioned it. Very nice dress with a vintage appeal. How was the fashion show?
