It’s show time! I work in events and show season not only means having 3 days off in 5 weeks, but the need for a wardrobe of trusty, comfortable but smart, show outfits. However I didn’t just want to buy dresses that I can only wear at the shows and smart occasions, but ones that can be dressed up or down, depending on the situation. This dress from ASOS fits the bill as its swing cut, round neck and textured stretch fabric ensure it is relaxed whilst still stylish at the same time.
Having Scottish blood myself, I’ve always wanted to celebrate Hogmanay in Scotland and that’s where I was lucky enough to welcome in 2015. As soon as I was invited to spend New Year’s Eve in Scotland, I was on the hunt for the perfect party dress. However, I really struggled to find anything on the high street that felt special enough and high quality without being overpriced. Instead, I waited until I went home to Somerset for Christmas and hit the independent shops in Frome.
