Outfit | A Rose by Any Other Name

dress: topshop | hat: topshop | boots: new look | necklace: swatch

This dress was a popular little number over the summer and I was definitely an admirer. But at £40+ I just couldn't justify it. So when I went last week and saw this in the sale for £20 in my size I just couldn't pass up the opportunity. It fits perfectly and it's a dress my boyfriend actually likes so win win!

I wore this outfit out on Saturday evening to a friends birthday and it was super comfy and just a really nice smart casual outfit that can be worn through winter by popping on some tights and ankle boots. I haven't worn these for a while, but after Paige chose them for one my outfits I fell back in love with them and had to wear them with this dress. I think they toughen it up a bit so it's not too girly girl. 

Team this with Ruby Woo and my trusty bowler hat and you have yourself a Lisa. I don't think I've taken this hat off since I bought it. Whenever I go out it just appears on my head like a magnet. Who can beat a good head magnet!

How would you style this dress?



  1. Ooooh I love the dress! Such a pretty print - you look fab! :)

  2. I've been lusting after this dress for so long but never got round to getting it as the price range was a bit hefty for me too. Looks gorgeous on you! :)

  4. I bought this dress in the sale too the other day! Such a bargain! Like you, I saw it before but couldn't justify the £45 price tag so was really happy to get it for less than half :) Looks absolutely gorgeous on you! xxx
    p.s. sorry if this comment is posted twice, it deleted it I think the first time I wrote it out but not sure!
