First day back at work today. Sigh!
The only thing putting a little pep in my step this morning was the fact that I would get to brag about my holiday lots and show off a pretty new outfit.
And as promised, I took a photo - so I get to show it off to even more people! Yay!!!
So here it is:
The dress is from Anthropologie which is a cute US chain store that sells gorgeous clothes and home decor (including amazing candles that smell just like cookies baking!). A lot of the stuff in there was super-girly and not really my kind of thing but I thought this dress would be good for work and, more importantly, really comfy. Also, I normally don't go for dresses that are this length because they usually make me look stumpy but I think this one looks ok. Maybe because it is so fitted.
The necklace is also a new buy from All Saints. All Saints is actually a UK label but we don't have it here in Australia and I love so many of their clothes and accessories. I think I went back and bought stuff from their at least 3 times and bought a whole bunch of things each time (30% off the entire store didn't hurt either - seriously, the US sales are unbelievable!).
The shoes are old though. They are oxford brogues but with a heel. I bought them for $30 in a clearance sale like 3 years ago - how cool is that? More amazingly, they are not black. I very nearly wore my standard, black heels but went crazy and put these on when I realised the colour kind of matches the stripes in the dress. Plus, I was feeling brave - it is a new year after all!
So there it is - day one. But I have plenty more where that came from so stay tuned!!
