Friday Frock O’clock

Limited Edition Shimmer Stripe Dress, F&F at Tesco, £25

Yesterday, I was ruminating my choice of dress for the wedding I posted two outfits for last week with Gemma, and she sent me today’s frock. Those of you who know Gemma will know that she is Queen Of The Bargains and makes being on a budget effortlessly stylish. I know social events like weddings often cause a real problem for those of you trying to squeeze the pennies, or if in fact you just prefer to spend your money on something other than a new dress. Even if you’re not trying to save, everybody loves a bargain, and at £25 this dress is an absolute steal.

Right now I am lusting after pastels in every shape, shade and form and this frock reminds me of a tray of whipped gelato or the British seaside, a la Mulberry’s SS12 campaign. With the stripes and the shape however, it strays into preppy territory and you can bring it right up to date with the SS13 addition of metallic accessories, like the pretty model is wearing here. And for £25, why not wear it to the seaside?

Have a fabulous weekend readers!

  1. Oh I’m in love with this dress. It is so cute, and yet, like you say, can be easily dressed up if accesorized properly.
    Now I wish I lived in the UK. Any volunteers to get it and post it for me???

    • Yes I just saw. Cue excitement. Now I just have to convince myself I need a summer dress even when the temperatures are (still) kind of low 🙂 Thanks for the tip!

  2. This is gorgeous! And such a bargain too! I have to confess, within minutes of seeing this post I ordered! Great find 🙂 xxx

  3. I love this dress, it’s so pretty! Does anyone know if F&F sizes are on the big or small size? I am in between dress sizes and have never bought from there before so not sure which way to go! Thanks x

  4. Oooh pretty, that would be lovely for honeymoon, I might be going a bit OTT in the number of pretty dresses I am buying for it.

    Wonder if I would get away with slipping it in the trolley at our weekly shop?


    • Ha I sneakily added this dress to my basket this morning when purchasing the one above… too good a price not to!
