Outfit 14.1.10: Purple and houndstooth dress – plus People Tree sale goodies

14.1.10 purple and grey people tree dress

necklace

This is what I wore to Dave and I’s 11 year anniversary on Friday – we were going for a posh meal and then had some drinks in a divey pub, it was ace!

dress – People Tree
top under – Vero Moda
necklace – swap with (into) the fray etsy
shoes – clarks

I wanted something smart and also office appropriate so that I didn’t need to change, so I went for this mini houndstoosh dress from People Tree. And it’s such a nice dress that it made me finally give in and buy stuff in the People Tree sale. I had seriously been thinking about it for two weeks, visiting their webiste almost every day. I knew I was going to give in eventually, but at least I gave it plenty of consideration.

This is what I got:

Office dress, £24

Smart prom style dress, £45. It’s cotton though, so I can wear it to work too. The sash belt is attached and can be worn to the front or back.

Skirt, £25

Raglan top, £12. I was sort of dithering about this because unlike the other things it’s not that special, but I do really like their jersey basics, they’re better quality than what you get elsewhere.

And £106 for 4 things is not so bad, non?

    lovely houndstooth paired with the magenta-ish tights. hm, drinks at dive bars are sometimes the best dates, i think. 🙂

    There is nothing like a drink in a divey pub after a posh meal! Love your outfit and the way you have added colour (as always). Love your People tree picks too, I recently bought some tops from there and I love them, really nice quality. The prom dress is gorgeous.

    The dress looks great – smart but stylish and you've really livened it up prettily with the purple theme and the necklace! Thanks for your comment on my hat post, I admire your new black one very much!
