Little Black Dress Klaxon

I've never bought into the little black dress idea before. I like my going out/special dresses flouncy, colourful and cute but when I was asked to choose a few bits from Simply Be this dress caught my eye. Since becoming familiar with Scarlett & Jo and their Powerfit dresses I've realised that having a few classy, understated dresses in my wardrobe for when I fancy pretending to be a grown up wouldn't go a miss. 

I love the nipped in waist, skater skirt and mesh top of the Simply Be dress. Mesh tops aren't something I've ventured into before, I love the idea of strapless dresses but I'm not entirely confident with bare shoulders so it's a good compromise. Plus it's a little 'ooh, nudey flesh but not, raunchy!'

Evening lighting in our house is baaaad.

I wore this to a 60th birthday party in our village hall so I might have been a smidge over dressed but I care not! To make the outfit feel a little more me I put my vintage glasses brooch on, some coral shoes and took a little coral heart embossed clutch I picked up in Tesco a while ago for about £3! 

The flash is so unforgiving on my shiny face...
