Red Turtle Neck Dress | River Island
Necklace | BHS
Bag | New Look
Flatforms | similar from F&F in White
I had a massive panic on last week trying to find a dress for a friend's birthday do for last Saturday. I'd ordered a couple of options online with the classic 'surely one will fit' attitude. But, alas, neither did! So after work on Friday a rushed into Derby Westfield. With not much dosh to spend and some cash on a River Island gift card, it would have been stupid to look anywhere else!
This red turtle neck number was the most formal looking one, so after trying on a few frocks I ran for the till, as it was the last dress in this style in stock. As red is one of the major colours for AW13 I thought it was ideal (I'm starting to like red aren't I?!). The only thing that bugs me about it is the exposed zip. It would have looked far more elegant without it - sigh! But the high street just loves'em don't they. However, the cut of it hides my drinking belly perfectly ;) Just what you need in a going out dress eh?!
