What Cat Wore: Lacy Black Dress

Dress - Miss Selfridge
Necklace - eBay (I think!)
Floppy Hat - eBay
Converse - Very.co.uk

Yesterday I was dead nervous about a work visit, and dressed to impress in my latest uniform purchase from Miss Selfridge to look my best. This dress is the perfect example of a jazzed up simple dress, with a cute and simple overlay lace hem. And with simple spaghetti straps, it's perfect for the summer. I will be honest and say I had to alter the straps and sew away a couple of inches off the length to avoid "accentuating my assets" ... Not for me thanks. I didn't want to wear my boots like I always do to work, or my Mega Topshop sandals, so I stuck with my favourite footwear and did the 'dress & converse' combo, which I think worked well. Of course I didn't wear the hat to work, but if I was to wear this outfit out, the hat would definitely be a part of it. I bought this a couple of months ago on eBay and I keep forgetting that I have it so I haven't worn it out yet. It's only about 20% of the price of one you'd get on the high street for the same amount of quality, so it was a pure bargain!
I was complimented quite a lot on my look yesterday, so I felt pretty good all day. Not only that, but my work visit went well so that added some more happy feels to my day! A lot of people asked where my necklace was from, and felt a little bad that I couldn't say where it was from or how long ago I got it. All I know is that it's a few years old and this is the first time I've worn it! I think it was from eBay but I couldn't tell you for sure!
I don't often blog my work outfits, but I liked this one! What do you think? Successful outfit?
