Outfit: Oasis camel knit midi dress
Well, it snowed again.
Don’t worry, I didn’t actually walk around in it wearing suede boots (or without a coat, obviously): that little dusting was all that was left of it by the time I left the house, and, well, it made a nicer photo backdrop than the wet, sludge-covered roads we’re left with after a snowfall, so I decided to take one for the team – or for the blog, rather.
(And yeah, the sunglasses had to come out again because I could NOT. STOP. BLINKING. Seriously, why can’t I stop blinking? It’s like some weird kind of Pavlovian response to the shutter clicking or something…)
But I’m not here to talk about snow OR about blinking. No, today I’m here to talk about this dress, which was one of those almost-accidental purchases, in that I swear I just added it to my basket so I could find out what the various shipping options were. No, really, I did. The problem came once I got to checkout – at which point I thought, “well, I’ve come this far: I might as well just click the ‘order’ button, purely out of, er, professional interest. That way I can see how quickly it arrives, and report back to my readers: I mean, it’s almost like I’m performing a public service here, isn’t it?”
Well, never let it be said that I’m the kind of person who would shirk her duty, so I ordered the dress, and I did it for YOU, people. And also for me, because let’s face it: this is the kind of dress that will be on constant rotation from now until May, probably. It’s warm, it’s stretchy, it’s easy to wear… it’s a miracle I’ve survived this long without it, actually. Oh, and it’s also available in grey: the temptation is strong, people…
