I wasn't sure about this navy dress when I tried it on for the first time, but when I dressed it up and snipped off the belt loops, I realised I loved it. It's a fabulous length and I adore the neckline, plus the skirt is so spinny! It's my favourite kind of dress in that I could wear it anywhere - work, day, night - it's all good. And it's stretchy and doesn't need ironing. And - AND - it's not a high neck! Why are all dresses high necked, lately? A lot of my favourite dresses are high necked, and I like the dresses, but constantly think that if they were scoop necked, they'd be a lot better and more flattering.
A navy dress is one of those essentials that I actually did not have, shockingly. Now that school is but a distant memory, I realise how much I love navy - like black, it goes with everything, but the colours blend in a more subtle way. I love it with these maroon tights, and on Christmas Day I wore it with red tights and a red belt. So pretty! I'm also completely infatuated with these shoes. Brogues just don't suit me, unless you slap a GIANT heel on them and then I am all for them. Yay.
