New dress time! I've been on the lookout for slightly more 'grown up' outfits that work in an office setting, as my current work attire is girly dresses and flat shoes. Which is all fine, but there are some days where I might be off to a meeting where I want to look like I mean business - but still keep a stamp of individuality and my own style. Warehouse have a great range of women's dresses that are great for workwear and partying alike, and I think this one hits the perfect spot of what I was looking for.
This was a bit of a wardrobe adventure for me, as I normally opt for skater rather than shift dresses, and actually the first thing I've ever owned from Warehouse! It is slightly roomy at the top, but it's not noticeable and I find the dress really comfy - and I like that the sleeves are loose, so it's really easy to move in. The length is great for me - still above the knee, but long enough that it's appropriate for work. I love the pattern, colours and lightly textured feel, and would happily wear this to a wedding or other event too!
I initially thought Warehouse would be out of my price range, but I was pleasantly suprised. They do offer more expensive, luxury outfits - but at the same time, there's plenty in their range that's affordable - at full price, this was only £35, now down to £25 in the sale. For something that feels like excellent quality and will definitely last me a long time, I think that's a pretty decent price to pay!
