Friday Frock O’clock

This week’s Friday frock is an outfit I have chosen and in fact wore, last night.

For Pete’s birthday, we headed back to Stock Restaurant, the venue for our wedding reception and believe it or not, we haven’t been back since. I wanted to go somewhere special and it means a lot to us so seemed the perfect choice, and who doesn’t love Italian food?

It’s very rare that I dress for my husband, so to speak. Thankfully he’s (nearly always) complimentary but for this particular evening I just wanted something a little girly and to look pretty for him. Less fash more pash. 😉

Straight Cut Dress, £34.99, Mango.

When I came across this simple Mango dress it was right up my street. I like clean design when it comes to clothes and the block colour is striking enough. (It’s actually a delicious coral pink although it looks red here.) In an ideal world I would pair it with some oversized spot tights but time constraints meant I nipped into Topshop and found these striking animal print tights – I chose them because I hate when patterned tight have a 10 or 20 denier backdrop to the pattern, it’s so unflattering and these really stand out because of the nude colour. I carried a clutch not dissimilar to this one from Oasis, but mine is a back patent Kate Moss for Topshop from donkeys years back that has become a wardrobe staple of mine. Teamed with some patent bow peep toes, it seemed dressed up enough for a special evening out but pared down enough to acknowledge the Thursday-night-school-night choice of evening.

Better than all that, it was a bargain too. I wasn’t complaining as I’ve got three outfits to work my way through for the weekend and I can see this coming out again and again.

Happy Friday Folks!

Do share you thoughts on my outfit and of course any lust have items you’ve splurged on come pay day!

  1. Love the tights!! Very bold and they look fab with the dress!
    Hope you have a great party tonight (do we get to see your other outfit too?? ;-))


  2. I love love love this dress, Rebecca.

    In fact, I may pop by after work and purchase (there’s a Mango en route to the Tube!) If it’s flattering, I may also get the blue.

    I hope there’s a Birthday Weekend Frock O’Clock post in the pipeline!

  3. Love the tights.

    Today’s payday purchase was a pair of Topshop grey brogues. Am thinking they will look good with pale summer clothes and be work/London public transport appropriate. Yes, I know right now summer is a long way away, but for those with large feet, like myself its always good to find nice shoes early and Topshop has some of the best size 42s around 🙂

    Shoes are these ones:|208543]&noOfRefinements=1

    Happy weekend everyone!

  4. Completely love this dress – actually I was in Zara yesterday looking for something very similar for a dinner this weekend. Didnt find anything though! The tights look great with it too.

    I may have bought this dress for honeymoon this week!! I just couldn’t resist the discount!!

    Have a great party and a lovely weekend
