I was recently faced with a "Style Stalking" dilemma when I fell in love with a certain Cos dress as seen on Amanda over at The Online Stylist. It was no surprise that the dress rocketed straight to the top of my wish list being as I am a huge fan of this seasons colour blocking trend, aswell as with the colour, Coral, it is so perfect for summer!
I toyed with the idea of catching a train to London and hot footing it over to Regent Street but common sense prevailed and I enlisted the help of another blogger Teawithonesugarplease who luckily for me not only works close by in Oxford Street, but loves a bit of lunchtime retail therapy, even if not for herself!
The funniest part of the story was that I was put on a shopping embargo by OH so pretended that I got sent it to review - how funny. Not funny if he reads this as my life will be hell. He may even actually kill me, I couldn't blame him, but men should know by now, that when it comes to retail therapy, most of us women should be on the panel of BBC1's "Would I lie to you" and answering "Yes I bloody well would"!
Anyway the dress got its first evening out last night, for an Indian Meal for a friends birthday. I decided not to belt it in (it looks quite good both ways as you can see in Amanda's post) as I had anticipated making the most of a Sunday night, 4 course, £10.95 per head, Buffet. Why would anybody go out for a meal on a Sunday night unless it was "cheap" night?
The now famous Cos Dress
My Steve Madden wedges are literally the most comfortable high shoes that I own. I nabbed them from Amazon about 3 years ago after "style stalking" Alex Gerrard who had them on in a magazine! Click on the link, they still have them!
The impromptu gift from OH, my Michael Kors rose gold watch rarely gets an outing and he is always moaning about it, so I was pleased I actually remembered to put it on for once! This also comes in a slightly smaller version.
I love this Accessorize cream flower ring and it is now available in a crystal version!
and my new Chanel Orange Fizz matches the dress perfectly!
