This weeks frock was prompted by my sister who was shopping and suggested a metallic green jacquard paisley dress from Warehouse that she had her eye on. I went for a little nosey round the Warehouse site and instead fell for this one, the snappily named ‘multi adorn paisley wrap dress’. Regardless of the name, it does tick all the boxes with a flattering waist band and wrap hem, and in one of THE hot colours of the season, purple.
Multi adorn paisley wrap dress, Warehouse – £55
Paisley is set to be a huge trend this season and whilst I’m torn between getting huge flash backs of the eighties and a velvet paisley dress I had around that time, this feels up to date enough and the colours are stunning.
If on the other hand you prefer more of a structured shift, perhaps you would like my sisters choice 😉 (Feel free to fuel the sibling rivalry by casting your vote in the comments box this week!)
PS – You know the 25% off at Whistles in association with Grazia is on now right? (And you can shop online at whistles.co.uk.)
This week’s frock was going on these very pages the second I clapped eyes on it. Each week, sometimes I have to actively hunt for a suitable Friday Frock that I love. It can feel just like those days you go shopping and there’s just nothing you can find that you like or looks good on you. Othertimes, I’ll be doing something different, stumble across a blinder of a frock and that’s the post done and dusted without a second thought. This was one of those dresses. Warehouse have really got their prints nailed this season and this is the kind of dress that I would buy to wear for days out, events or just getting dolled up at the weekend, then next year, I would transfer over into my work wardrobe to be paired with flats and a cardigan.
Multi fluro animal print dress, Warehouse, £70
It’s animal print but subtly done I think, the colours are great to take you through to autumn now. The cream backdrop but predominantly neutral and orange shades in the pattern mean you won’t feel ridiculous if you wear it somewhere this season, even if the day’s weather is less summer, more monsoon!
Well done Warehouse.
Happy weekend readers!
