OOTD - curry night

Hello there!

Well now the weekend is nearly over and the next weekend seems far too far away, I thought I'd share an outfit I wore Saturday for a curry night with friends (so technically it's not really an OOTD, but I'm learning so bear with me xx).

This is one of 3 skater style dresses I bought in the sale from Simply Be (seriously, I could spend a fortune on that site). There were reduced to £15 so I ordered three, one of each colour/design and only intend to keep one. Well, that was the plan.

First off, ordered them in a 22. Way too big. Cue happy dance so reordered in a 20 (me? in a 20??). This pattern of cream and black bows was the print I was least sure about, but as soon as I put it on, I loved it.

Dress - Simply Be sale, size 20
Belt - Primark (old)
Tights - Marks and Spencer XL
Boots - Duo (very old)

It came with tie-backs, so I cut them off and replaced with a Primark belt I bought last year. I think it helped break up the pattern and give me a bit more of a waist!

All teamed with black tights from Marks and Spencer and my trusty Duo boots, so old I can't even remember when I bought them, but I'm guessing 6+ years at least.

I so rarely wear dresses that people did a double take, but I felt great and it made a nice change from my normal outfit of trousers and top. I shall endeavour to wear more dresses!!

Oh...and those dresses from Simply Be?? I ended up keeping all 3, but I think you could have guessed that couldn't you? Keep a watch for them in upcoming posts.

Thanks for reading
Cathy

  1. You look great! I hate tie backs, I always nearly strangle myself with them when I'm putting a dress on. ;) x x
