Sharing my knitted dress today.

Hello you lovely fellow bloggers, how are you on this wonderful Monday?

Today I'm sharing that gorgeous grey knitted dress I purchased in the sales a couple of weeks ago.  You can see when and where I first wore it here and here.
Roman Originals have a fabulous selection of dresses, coats, separates and knitwear that are both flattering, comfortable, very stylish and on trend. 

The beauty of this knitted dress is that if, like me you feel the cold (most of the time) a little Cami T shirt or even a long sleeve example can be worn underneath without being seen.
The thick black opaque tights are fabulous to cover not-so-great legs.  They can also give the illusion of height when wore with matching coloured footwear - black on black = longer looking legs!






Layered with a fur vest ...  this one I've owned for years and came from M and Co.  Fur vests/gilets are so in fashion now,  I would recommend anyone purchase one for the upcoming season because they bring extra depth to almost all outfits.  I've found this pretty pastel pink example from Roman originals here for only £20! I'm tempted to click and buy myself!








Black dress coat from Roman Originals, previous season,  a rather traditional, classic style that will not date and always looks presentable!





Upon seeing this photo in full, I'm so pleased I'm visiting the hairdressers on Friday - definitely 'due' for some covering up on my 'hightlights' lol.
Throwing on my grey wrap adds more layers to keep me snug and warm, but easy to peel off just in case I get too hot!




Also just noticed it's bin day tomorrow! 







Today I've opted to wear these cute black suede tassel boots that I purchased from T K Maxx.  I love having a good old browse in this store, for some I know it's a bit like a jumble sale inside, but I always find so many bargains, especially shoes, boots, bags ..... and you could too!





Matching with the tassel theme I'm wearing a black tassel necklace that I've had in my collection for years, in fact I think I bought to wear for my nans funeral back in 2000.  Buying classic styles always stay in fashion, worth spending a little more for the wear you'll get out of it.








Such is life, but must go now to do some chores!
Until the next time it's been fun. X

  2. Jacqui, you look fabulous. I have never owned a sweater dress. I always feel that make my hips look too wide and I don't need any help in that area. Ha, ha. But you look lovely! I love the fur vest, black coat and the cape. Also, the dark hose and booties are perfect for winter. I have bad legs, so usually opt for a darker hose when I can. Thanks for sharing these lovely looks. - Amy

  13. Jacqui, I don't which way I like the dress best...all three toppers look great! I love my fur vest and wear it often. The gray color of yours is fabulous. I am loving your coat, too. And of course, the gray wrap is divine! And those boots are simply gorgeous. Thanks for linking up with me On the Edge.

  14. Fab sweater dress! It looks great both ways. I can't walk by a TKMaxx without going in for a nosey - many an unplanned purchase has been made when I've just gone in to "have a look"!
