Snazzy 70s with M&S

I'm 31 now so I'm wearing clothes that are grown up and understated. Oh no hang on I'm not because I'm not convinced I'll ever actually be a grown up and nobody really needs to be a grown up right?!? This paisley shirt dress is from the Marks and Spencer Limited Edition range and I am over the moon with it. 

Paisley Print Shirt Dress:  Marks and Spencer Limited Edition
Coat: River Island (No longer available)
Boots: New Look (No longer available)

I've always been loyal to the Limited Edition range, it is generally super on trend and incredibly well made (Being M&S and all). The most recent launch is no different - If I was five inches shorter, I'd have happily spent my entire disposable income on it, sadly the dress below was the longest of the range and the only item that covered my gusset...


On the hanger the dress looked pretty shapeless and I thought it would be one of those dresses that you buy oversized and wear over leggings. HOWEVER, I tried it on in the 16 and it goes in perfectly at the waist, plus the hidden buttons mid way between the outside buttons (stick with me) stop me flashing any of my parts. This all means I can wear it over tights and feel thoroughly fabulous both dressed up and dressed down.


I'm wearing it here with a 2014 January sale find coat from River Island (Size 18 - It happens occasionally on the high street) and my New Look ankle boots which I desperately need to replace as they're entirely coming from together.


I'm going to leave you here with a picture of Catalina Winemixer the Bin kitten, she refuses to look at the camera because she's going through a "phase"... Also, she thinks the dress is a bit gaudy...What does she know, she lived in a bin...

  1. Love the print and colours on you ... I normally bypass M&S for anything but crappy day knickers but may have to do a u-turn on my opinions after reading this!
