Then I saw a picture of Coleen Rooney in the same dress and it took on a whole new meaning for me. She may own Balenciaga by the bag load and have closets full of Chanel, but I always love it when people with loads of money, still mix it up with a bit of High Street fashion.
I soon realised what was wrong, although on the hanger instore, this dress lends itself to the idea of being worn with heels, but it actually looks far better with flat sandals, dressed down rather than up.
Then Chloe informed me one of her friends actually bought and wore this dress out to her birthday night at Cafe de Paris, so I pinched a picture off of facebook!
OK I know this picture wasn't taken from a great angle, but I prefer it worn as a day dress, the necklace is not required and it is far more stylish with flat sandals, aviators and a top knot! Go Coleen!
