My Favourite Dress (& #Passion4Fashion Linkup)


About a month ago i mentioned the dress i had been cyber stalking in hope that i would get my grubby little mitts on it, and my stalker skills paid off as it ended up being mine.
And for once I am so grateful for my website lurking expertise. I have worn this dress twice a week since i got it. I just love it.
Comfy, neutral so easy to remix with other pieces and it has pockets..
is that or is that not the most perfect dress? It is for me, so much so that I have also ordered the Khaki version to wear the life out of as well, 'cos quite frankly this one needs a breather (and a wash) so the khaki will be added to my rotation.
I'm looking forward to wearing it with bare legs come the warmer days, but for today i mixed a little navy with this Laura Ashley trench and navy boots. I've also worn it with my biker jacket, with a long  maroon cardigan and with a long black coat... I wasn't lying when I said I've been wearing it a lot.
And when I invest in a dress I make sure I get my monies worth.. so far so good anyway.










Dress: Whistles
Boots: F&F
Navy Trench
Bag: Michael Kors
Necklace

Have you invested any dresses lately?

  1. This is a lovely dress and I could probably learn a thing or two from your "fashion stalking" skills :) Have a great weekend.

  2. I have this dress in navy - I love the printed version but the fact it's dry clean only stopped me buying it!

  16. Absolutely perfect styling of black and navy, Rachel - THIS is how it's done!! And I can see why you love the Whistles dress so much, it's very, very chic and the pattern is very unusual (in a good way of course). Amazing how classy and expensive black and navy looks, isn't it...?!

    Thank you for hosting the link up, and happy weekend!

  17. Great dress! You styled it perfectly!

    Glad your dress stalking skill paid off! It's such a great feeling when it works out (and not so great when something gets away, which happened recently to me...).

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  26. I'm a big fan of dresses with pockets! I love the black and navy combination you're wearing. I've got my eye on a black and white striped dress - it's in sale so very tempting, but I'm wondering if I can justify buying another dress when I've still got some I haven't worn yet!
