Friday Frock O’clock

Yesterday I headed into Manchester city centre to meet my Mum for a spot of shopping. I’d had in mind to purchase a skirt I had seen back in Bath a few weeks ago from Marks and Spencer and also to pick up the polka spot chambray shirt in GAP that I instagrammed from there too. (Anyone who saw and wanted it, it’s gone down to £24.99 in the sale.)

While I was in Marks and Spencer I spotted this dress, which really caught my eye for it’s simplistic yet graphic design.

Bodice prom dress, Marks and Spencer

The nude backdrop gives the dress a cut out look and the whole feel of the dress is much more expensive than it’s £45 price tag. I can really see this going the distance right through from now (It’s a pretty light fabric for warmer evenings,) all the way to Christmas parties and working day to night with ease if you layer up with a jumper on top or a shirt underneath. I know I always go on about items working hard, but when you’re on a budget or saving the pennies I think it’s a really important consideration and a perfect way to make a dress work hard. I don’t believe in saving things for best. At this price there’s no need and if you don’t wear it, you’ll have gone off it in a couple of seasons, so you might as well enjoy it now!

Happy weekend readers!

    • You know what, I shop in M&S all the time but the web images are usually appalling so I dont like putting them up here! I’m going to get in touch with the press dept because they are on FIRE at the moment. Got a right haul in there yesterday 😉

      • Completely agree! Went in for a bottle of water the other day and ended up with three tops! Including a really cute t shirt with foxes on.

      • Did you get the Whistles esque work dress with leather edged pockets? I think their summer collection has been pants (linen just doesn’t work for summer). Their winter and autumn collections are always better
