Well… Could I have picked a better day for the start of this challenge? The weather was absolutely dreadful and foul today- so I picked the brightest dress of the challenge!!
I’m afraid you will see a lot this dirty wall in the future- it seems to be the only place I can take a decent picture. I’ve got a mini flexible tripod- you know, the sort that can be bent and twisted and can wrap around anything- and attached it on my ironing table. I really am an amateur at this sort of things.
Anyway, back to our outfit.
This dress is a Boden dress bought on eBay UK for just under £15- postage included. There are TONS of them on there- with prices ranging from £9.99 to £29.99. They are surplus stock, so the tags have been removed. Personally, I don’t care. The dress is such good quality- the jersey fabric is really flattering. Only the top wraps up. And the pattern and the colour are so vivid!!! I love to wear it with my little bright blue cardigan.
This dress is also available in grey- but I find the red is much brighter and cheerful. There are also two dresses in pastel colours available, but I’m not sure about them, they might look a bit frumpy on me.
So what do you think? Are you tempted to get one of these? And what do you wear when the weather is truly awful- a “blend in the landscape” outfit to go with the weather, or some bright colours to cheer you up?
