Whilst packing for the move, I realised I have a massive gap in my workwear wardrobe. And that gap is shaped like a grey dress.
|Topshop, H&M, Joules (no longer available), H&M|
I own an awful lot of grey- it's a colour I feel like I suit, which is weird as apparently it's a colour which makes a lot of people looked quite washed out. But I have bluey-grey eyes, and when I wear grey (or blue, actually) they do seem to stand out and that's a good thing, right?! I appear to have accumulated no less than seven grey items of knitwear, but I have no grey dresses. And I'm now very sad about this.
I absolutely fell in love with the Joules Alexi dress in grey- after I bought it in navy (which I also adore). In all honesty, this is the perfect grey dress for me- seriously comfortable, an appropriate length, not too low cut, smart enough for work but also something I could wear outside of work. Did I buy it when I had the chance? No, no I did not.
So I'm now looking elsewhere. The two H&M dresses (here and here) are good- very good- but are perhaps just a little smarter than I would like. And as much as I love the simplicity of this Topshop dress, it's definitely not what I'm after as far as workwear goes. This ASOS dress is okay- but I can't be doing with the hassle of buying and returning a dress I only think is okay. My favourites of Mango, Oasis, and Warehouse don't have anything I like. What is this?!
So I think I shall be remaining grey dress-less for a little while longer, unless any of you can find me the perfect one- under £50, and just generally perfect. OK? Brilliant, ta muchly.
