I love this dress for those occasions when I need to look all SRS BZNZ but also, you know, like me. Red is probably my favourite colour - fie on those who say it clashes with ginger hair, fie I say! - but I do think it can still look smart and work appropriate, in the right dress (not in the wrong dress).
The jacket is new, though, and probably even more Sarah-Does-Workwear than the dress. A polka dot blazer? Er, YES PLEASE. I found it in Debenhams earlier in the week and when those magical 25% off signs went up the next day, I popped back and snapped it up. I love the print, of course, but I really bought it for the fit. Now, as you know, I'm a massive shortarse, which I understand is rather an oxymoron (TWITTER SHOUTOUT) but ssshhh. This whole oversized trend looks awful on me - if you're little but curvy, it's just unflattering. But this - cropped, but not TOO cropped, and with neat little sleeves - PERFECT.
Now, I just need to find this exact blazer in every single colour. Can't be too hard, right?
