Ball gowns every day

When you buy what can only be described as a gown, because it’s just too pretty with its big obi bow and its chopped up hem, and you want to get a bit of mileage from it…  Add leather legs (yeah, I’m afraid it’s that time of year again – my legs will be leather for approximately the next three months in lieu of tights) and other layers of choice and wear at liberty – in this instance to the official switch on of the House of Fraser Christmas lights.

Just FYI, it looks quite special without all the extra layers too but probably a bit of a stretch to imagine it suitable for everyday wear…  Perhaps with gladiator flats and sunshine (I’ll see what I can do about that).

    You layered this expertly! I’d definitely have seen it as a summer only piece. It’s great when you can make your wardrobe work year-round, you get more value that way! 🙂

    Hope you have a nice weekend lined up! 🙂
