What I wore | 23.05.13

As promised, here is an OOTD featuring the bargain aztec midi dress I recently bought off eBay.
Last weekend I went to a badminton awards do, and I am delighted to say we came home with a bundle of trophies; we won the league and are moving up to the first division next year, yippee!
 
Anyway, I'm sure when I get brave enough I will be showing you my FOTN's as well as outfits, however for now I am going to wimp out and just show you what I wore. I also must apologise for the terrible lighting and lack of arm candy: typically I was on the last minute.
Unfortunately for me, I can't say that's a rarity but when is any girl ever on time?
 
 
Dress: eBay | Necklace: Primark | Bag: Vintage | Shoes: Miss Selfridge | Hair: styled with Enrapture Encode Totem Styler* (review here)
 
 
This red aztec midi dress is my new favourite, hands down. I bought it from this eBay seller for around £10 including delivery. Unfortunately they no longer stock this exact dress but I have found the same dress here from a different seller for £15 plus p&p. 
I find midi dresses an absolute dream to wear; just pop a statement necklace over the top, grab a clutch and voila. Perfect for those all too familiar last minute 'Oh-My-God-I-have-nothing-to-wear' dramas!
 
In hindsight I wish I'd have chosen black accessories, but to be honest I was totally going for comfort with the shoes. I've had these Miss Selfridge heels for a while now; they were a gift from a friend and are literally the comfiest heels I have ever worn.
 
Plus they happen to be a perfect colour match with this bag, which I usually tuck the strap into and use as a clutch bag. God only knows how old the bag is; it was my late Grandma's and is the softest leather you have ever come across. I've really gotten good use out of this little gem.
 
What do you think of this outfit?
Are you a fan of midi dresses?

  1. I love that necklace! I really like midi dresses, but I always feel like they make me look shorter than I am.

    1. Thank you!
      I've heard a lot of people say that but I think it definitely depends on what length you go for; I think there's a length to best suit each height and body shape; couldn't tell you which one's which if I tried though! xx

  4. Gorgeous outfit! You look lovely!

    I personally cannot pull off wearing midi dresses, but it looks great on you and I like how you've teamed it with gold jewellery.
