Grey on Grey

Introducing my new favourite dress! I haven't been shopping in Primark in ages because every time I go in (to the Nottingham branch, i.e hell) it seems to be absolutely packed and my stress levels rise through the roof and I find myself trying to escape as soon as possible (maybe a little over-dramatic). Anyway, I don't find Primark a pleasant shopping experience! But I went in the other day looking for some new PJ's and stumbled across this beaut of a dress. I always admire these kind of dresses from afar as the long length and tight cut isn't normally a good look for a shortie like me. However, I braved the fitting rooms and discovered that it looked alright on! It is some kind of miracle that a long, tight dress suits me and I seem to be wearing it quite a lot now. It makes me feel kind of sophisticated. I paired it with a grey beanie and leather jacket to dress it down for a casual look for post-Christmas shopping the other day. Have you discovered any new cuts or styles recently that you didn't think suited you?

Dress- Primark (£10, with belt), Beanie- Ebay, Leather Jacket- Topshop, Watch- Fossil

  9. I completely agree with you on Primark! It stresses me out ridiculously! Great find you have there though - I've been looking for things like that for work, but seems the only way is to venture into the dreaded Primark!
