"Look at you with your red shoes!"

Thank you Mr. Drunk Man, I hadn't noticed what I was wearing until you said! This dress is my favourite thing to wear at the moment, I picked it up for £1 (!) off our clothes rail at my work's summer BBQ and I couldn't be happier.   I have always wanted to try a clothes swap and this really worked as loads of people brought in clothes for me and my colleague Matilda, to sell and we managed to raise £20 for  our nominated charity (not bad considering everything was £1!)

Dress: Isabella Oliver (clothes swap), blazer: New Look, belt: vintage, shoes: Accessorize 
I love the length and monochrome stripes will always look good, I can't wait to layer it up this autumn. I was very grateful of the little sleeves on this too, perfect for covering my slightly sunburnt shoulders (courtesy of the aforementioned BBQ) and much more professional too...

This dress is pretty similar, and it's in the sale!
 A slightly better and less strobey look at the stripes, they made me feel very French, I felt like I should be carrying a string of onions around with me! Also wearing my current favourite combination of accessories...


A slight outtake but a better look at my make up and hair, I'm still loving this red lipstain, especially now the weather has gone gloomy again! 


Have you ever tried a clothes swap? What are your favourite accessories?

£1! such a great dress, would look nice with a coloured blazer too. I've done a swap with friends but we did cd's books, clothes and make up. I got some nibbles and drinks in and everyone went away with something xx

That dress is lovely! Great job on raising money, and a great dress to take home too! Love it paired with all red accessories, they go so well with the monochrome!

I love this look, it's so chic! Haaahaa, isn't it just lovely when drunk men shout the bleedin' obvious at you? At least yours was a vague compliment, I was walking home from a night out with my friend when a group of men started chanting at her 'your dress is fucking awful'! (Her dress was actually really nice, they were just bastards) x
