Have you ever seen a dress and instantly thought ‘I must buy that dress!’
I have, quite frequently in-fact.
Sometimes i stop myself and then the urge wears off, but sometimes i just go hell for leather for that must-have beauty.
That was the case with this dress.
I first saw a photo of it on the gorgeous Laura of WIT blog on instagram. I commented, clicked the little heart, then could not stop thinking about the purddy purddy dress.
I had an email from Monsoon whilst i was on holidays in Cornwall to say their heritage collection was now on sale, with limited wifi, i clicked and waited, and then there it was.. The dress i had lusted after. So with dodgy signal, on my phone, i made that dress mine *cue evil laugh* 😉
The reason i love it so much is the sheer potential it has.
For Autumn i can see it with ankle boots and a faux fur gilet. For winter knee high boots, and a lovely thick cardi and spring a simple pair of tan or black sandals.
And we all know how much i like remixable dresses! This excites me. A piece that i will wear again and again.
So with the potential of it being a good little work horse its earned its way in to my wardrobe.
Plus it’s red. We all know how much i love red! (Also thinking Christmas day dress.. could be good right? And yes, i just went there and said Christmas..feel free to slap me)
For this late summers evening, when the temperatures are still fairly mild, i chose my new Warehouse black lace up shoes.
Lace ups shoes have definitely become a shoe staple of mine. With the navy and orange summer pairs, i knew i had to have a black pair for autumn.
Have you ever fallen for a dress that you just had to have?
