I put it on this morning and couldn’t decide what shoes to add that would liven up the outfit. I tried it with flat ballet pumps but due to the length I didn’t think they worked – it was too frumpy on me. So I tried with all sorts of colours (tan/nude/red) and finally decided upon the purple wedge heels.
After taking the photo I still didn’t really think it was pulled together as a whole look
So I added a necklace
And then a bag
And voila – one great dress, with some little coordinated accessories and now I have a complete look.
What do you think? Should it be shorter? I’ve hitched it up here so you can see … I think it might be worth taking up a few (lot) inches as it would suit my figure better.
Dress was £10 – Sainsbury’s
Shoes were £7 – Tesco sale a few years ago
Necklace – Next (years ago)
Bag – Vera Wang from an outlet in America years ago
Have you ever worked your magic with a boring outfit and made it something special by adding a few things?
