Hope you're all doing well.
As I said last week the weekend was a quiet affair. Didn't get up to much and even my ballet exam was postponed for a couple of weeks due to a Covid outbreak for teachers and a few pupils. I do admit to being rather pleased to have the extra practice, I think I need it to be honest!
I looked after my grandson on Sunday, just for a couple of hours before going to the local for dinner. Neither me or hubby felt like cooking, so David suggested going out to eat and as you can imagine I jumped at the chance - any reason not to cook works for me ... lol!
I'm always on the lookout for a charming dress and when I saw this in the Dorothy Perkins sale I though why not? As it was a mere £15 I popped it into my online shopping basket and home it came to me!
Once it arrived I didn't really like the look, so it might go back, do let me know what you think my friends.
With slinky fabric topping the fashion stakes at the moment this I was happy to find this dress.
The only trouble is that it's a bias cut which doesn't suit my shape. It also had quite a lot of extra material in the wrong place and I didn't know what to do with it. I tried a belt, that didn't look right so then I tried the hair-band-inside to gather a small piece. You can see this in the photo below & to be fair it actually worked rather well and gave a bit more defined shape to the otherwise straight style. Still not sure though, what do you think?
As I mentioned earlier this was in the sale section. It's still available and may be one for you to try, especially at that reasonable price!
This mono floral has a pretty cut out detail on the neckline, and just below that is where I gathered it in. It's a midaxi style and my look is complimented by some black suede effect ankle shoes. Mine have a sturdy block heel, making it easier to walk in and would be fabulous for a special occasion when walking on grass!! (Anyone else suffer SSS ... sinking stiletto syndrome?)
Finishing touches by way of my fiery orange biker jacket that's a soft faux suede. Do you recall seeing it before? I've had it ages and it's topped off many a stylish look, catch it here with grey trousers and my graphic T shirt.

Thanks so much for joining me today, I hope you have a brilliant week. Back to the gym and seeing friends this week - let's hope the sun keeps shining for that.
Cheerio for now. X
