OOTD - EFW

So as many of you know I was lucky enough to attend Essex Fashion Week today with Essex Style Magazine, it was a great day and I'll fill you in on it later in the week as I need to get blogging for the magazine first. Obviously I'm still going to share my outfit with you, I didn't want to be too glamorous because I was working but I still wanted to dress up and make some kind of an effort, I hope you like it!









Dress, River Island - £30
Socks, River Island - £4
Clog Boots, eBay - £12.50
Clutch Bag, Primark - £4
Belt, came with a skirt ages ago

I've already blogged about 'Autumn Metallics' and I really am a huge fan, it adds a bit of glitz to these generally pretty miserable days, which in my opinion is not a bad thing at all.
I saw this metallic dress in River Island and I knew that I would get plenty of wear out of it and at £30 it's not too pricey. I decided to team it with black accessories because lets face it, you can't go wrong with black! I should add though that this dress is pretty see through so I wore a black tube skirt and a bandeau top underneath. 

I have mentioned these boots in a previous blog post and I must say they have gone down pretty well with people, I think they're really comfortable which was important for today as I did a lot of standing up. I added some frilly black ankle socks to the boots to give them a different look from last time I wore them. I decided to add a belt to clinch me in at the waist otherwise this dress would have made me look a little shapeless. Finally this black clutch bag was a pretty good find in Primark and I know I will certainly get £4 worth of use out of it so I'm a happy girl. I'd love to hear your views on my outfit and if anybody went to Essex Fashion Week too I'd love to know how your day was x

  7. I love your dress! The fabric makes it really interesting for what is essentially just a grey dress! I'd love to wear this outfit paired with a loose long statement cardigan or something :) x
