I thought seeing as I am having a couple of days off doing uni work (okay maybe not 'off', but definitely less seeing as it is Christmas and I am trying to have a bit of a break), I would write a couple of posts before the big day!
So a couple of weeks ago I got a last minute ticket for the Radiology department's Christmas do. I'm so glad I went, it was a lovely evening and it was great to see the radiographers in a completely different light.
However, getting the ticket just a week in advance, as you can imagine I did have that dreaded panic of ''what the hell am I going to wear!?"
Luckily, within just quarter of an hour of wandering aimlessly around town, I stumbled across this beauty...
|Apologies for the awful quality photos. I think I need to invest in a tripod!|
...I figured as I would quite like a job at the end of my three year stint of placement at the hospital, I'd better get something that was long enough to avoid any drunken mishaps; so this one just about cut it!
It is a really simple yet gorgeous dress. The top part is sheer material with a beautiful velvet-y floral-ish pattern layered over a beige top, and the skirt is also completely sheer with a black bodycon skirt to keep you covered.
I know its very black but 1) I actually thought it looked quite sophisticated and 2) what the hell else was I gonna get at such short notice!?
I teamed the dress with my bargain fiver heels (reviewed here), and a plain black envelope clutch (not pictured). I really didn't think it needed much accessorising as it's one of those dresses that kind of speaks for itself!
Now I don't think you'd ever guess the price of this dress unless you've already seen it in store...
...it was a mere £15 from Primark.
I know, my jaw dropped too.
So my dress and shoes altogether came to a pretty impressive £20. My purse loves me!
What do you think of this dress?
Have you bought any of your Christmas party dresses from Primark?
Thanks for reading, I've missed you lovely lot!!
