4 men in a pub...



Today, I bought a dress from Debenhams. A bargain sale item at £9. 70% off.

My shoes (yes, the 2nd hand ones that were caught watching TV last night) actually chose the dress. "Oh please buy it mum" they said. "It'll go perfectly with us". (I know, weird huh?, my £5 shoes not only watch TV, but talk to me too).

Turns out I had a 5 hour meeting
today which might sound heavy going, until I tell you it was in a pub. Every cloud has a silver lining! But it does explain why I look slightly creased.. oh, and the dress is a bit creased too.

I feel this dress would benefit from two things:
1. A nice white shirt underneath instead of the tshirt. Only problem being I don't own one single blouse or shirt. My bazookas don't agree with them. Every time I've attempted one, they've made a bid for freedom, usually resulting in some highly embarrassing moments.
2. The hem could come up an inch or two, although, I have to say, I didn't mind this length today for work, in a meeting with '4 men in a pub*'.

Total spent today: £9.





* Contrary to popular belief, '4 men in a pub' is not a film. But in my opinion it should be.

I love the menswear feel and the classic pencil skirt, the shoes pull the whole look together. Perfection!

I can see why those shoes were whispering for a match. Love it! And I prefer the Tshirt. It gives a clean look.

Love the dress... the shoes were right, it matched them.

I'm with Sher, I prefer the T-shirt. An actual shirt might look a bit too menswear-ish.
Sounds like a great meeting!

I don't mind the tee shirt! I think it just gives the outfit a bit more of an edgy, casual look instead.

Love your waistcoat, and it's fun to see you sport your new shoes already!

It looks like the perfect dress for my wardrobe challenge.
I agree with you too about the white shirts. I have the same problem.
