Dress: Glamorous*

Ring: Miss Selfridge
Shoes: Ebay

I recently got send this dress from Glamorous and I love it. As I’m sure you all know by now, I’m a massive fan of black dresses, so I really like that this one is a little bit different to all my other black dresses because of the cut out panels. I should have learnt by now, however, that me and button up shirts/dresses really don’t mix, the top is rather tight on me. I would definitely advise ordering a size up if you are in any way chesty!

Aside from that, I really like this dress. It’s great as a going out dress with a pair of heels and a statement blazer, but would also look great with a slouchy cardi or jumper for a more casual look. It’s hard to tell from these pictures because of the blazer I’m wearing, but the skirt part is really floaty which I love! I think this would also be great as a summer holiday dress with a pair of nice sandals, but sadly I’m not going on holiday this year. Somehow I don’t think it will be sunny enough in Scotland to lose the tights and jacket any time soon!

I got these shoes from Ebay ages ago from one of those wholesalers because I needed a pair of purple heels to go with an outfit and couldn’t find any on the high street. I absolutely love the colour of them, but they are a little bit ridiculously high – even by my standards! As much as I like online shopping, it’s so disappointing when things arrive and they’re not quite as you expected. But it does save trailing around the shops for hours getting angry at all the people walking too slowly, and not being able to find anything in your size!

What’s on your Glamorous wishlist at the moment?

    Gillian, you are ridiculously drop dead gorgeous. I think I noticed your face and hair here a lot more than the clothing. That being said, the blazer is a nice touch to giving the dress some structure and a pop of color. x

  • That's a gorgeous outfit, especially the dress. It looks great with the hot pink!

    Love it! I never normally go for buttoned tops or dresses either because they always gape at the top – problems of boobs eh! But this is seriously cute, looks great with the colour blocks too xo
