[♥ Dress F&F c/o Tesco ♥ Shoes: Ted Baker 'Mayter' c/o Sarenza ♥ Clutch: Dune]

Last week, the people at Tesco asked me to style one of their F&F dresses for a Christmas party. Well, there are a lot of things I’ll do in the name of fashion, but it turns out standing around in the freezing cold with bare arms and legs isn’t one of them, so you get these not-at-all fake indoor shots instead. If you could all just pretend I look like I’m at a party here, as opposed to standing on my own in my empty living room, that would be awesome

Anyway, I love this dress.  It’s made of a stretchy, scuba fabric, which is my favourite dress fabric at the moment (this dress is made from the same kind of material), mostly because it doesn’t crease AT ALL, and creased dresses (or creased anything, really), are one of my pet hates.  Also, the high-necked, wiggle-skirted shape has a bit of a retro feel to it, and you all know how much of a sucker I am for that.  It’s actually available in two other floral prints, and although this one is definitely my favourite, I’m very tempted to invest in one of the other versions, too, because although “retro style wiggle dresses” weren’t on my list of Things You Can Never Have Too Much Of, they really SHOULD have been.

I’ve actually already worn this dress a bit more casually (i.e. with boots and cardigan, as opposed to stilettos and bare forearms), and it works really well like that too, which is good because I may have gone a little bit overboard on the “big skirts” thing this month: two arrived on Saturday morning, and another one is out for delivery today, so I’m in serious danger of becoming a caricature of myself at this point. At least that’s the party season sorted…
