WHAT I WORE | REISS PINK DRESS





So this was my outfit of the day which I wore to work on Wednesday, I never usually dress this smart for work but this particular day I had an event to dash to after hours so I wanted to look semi decent.  This dress is from Reiss and is a really handy piece to have in your wardrobe as it covers a multitude of sins being nice and baggy.



This little fake shirt is one of my favourite recent purchases.  I love peter pan collars, they look so cute, and are great for transforming a regular dress or top.  I tried a couple of collar necklaces but they never seemed to sit right so when I found this half shirt in COS I was like wooo!  I didn't buy it straight away as it was marked up as AED250 which I thought was expensive for such a small amount of material.  Since I work in fashion and know a little about merchandising, I really want value for money when I'm shopping the high street because I have a good idea of what these products actually cost to make.  Anyway, a couple of weeks on I succumbed to the retail giant and went back to buy it, and I am so glad that I did.  I wear this shirt constantly!  It looks really nice under jumpers and living in the heat, you don't feel too hot because you are not wearing double layers on your arms.

My shoes are from Valentino, but you already know about these ones (see very old post) I might have gone over board on the baby pink, but I guess I just thought it looked cute.  The handbag was a lovely gift from a ex-partner, the monogram print isn't really my style and would of preferred the checkered print Speedy (that's not the reason why he is an ex) but it's a great size and goes with most outfits.

Got to be honest, I pinched this look from presenter/socialite Louise Roe - who I find incredibly annoying but it's got to be said, the girl can dress.  LR was a spotted in Reiss at LFW S/S12 and I thought this look was really chic, so I copied it! :)
