Little black dress

An item I am always on the hunt for is the perfect black dress...even though my wardrobe is already full of them!

But they're one of the easiest items of clothing to wear, and I say this because:

1) Black goes with almost anything.

2) They need very little thought when it comes to accessorizing - a nice chic necklace and you're good to go!

3) And, you can re-use...now this may sound a tad stupid, but put on a different jacket or some statement jewellery and the same dress can appear shiny and new!




This particular dress is from BooHoo, who I have to admit kindly gave me a £50 voucher at their Autumn/Winter event a couple of weeks back. However, I did spend an extra £50 of my own dosh and have even gone back and bought this dress in both white and mocha - I know, I'm ridiculous.


But the shape of this dress is so flattering, the material feels soft against your skin and the best bit is, it only cost £15, which is an absolute bargain!





I also tried out another 'statement nail effect' today using Barry M's Mint Green and then OPI Glittzerland on my ring finger! I'm not that keen on Mint Green - it's a bit flat and boring! I think I want my nail polish to have some dazzle to it, especially with Autumn round the corner.


Have you found the perfect little black dress? And, what are your favourite Autumn nail polishes?

  1. I was 100% sure that it's a New Look dress. There are the same ones in white, nude and mustard. I got nude and mustard ones. Yep - TWO of them. So you're not alone in the dress-madness! :) X

  6. I've also seen the New Look ones but the light colours just don't flatter me, black on the other hand might be a good option. I find that Boohoo needs a lot of careful selection but that dress is great!
