This Florence & Fred aztec tailored shift dress was Rachel‘s choice for Frock Swap UK and I have to be honest, it’s not something I would have picked. Being a teacher, I wear tailored dresses for work and so this element would have made me pigeon hole it under ‘work wear’ and dismiss this beauty of a dress. Thank God that Frock Swap UK has opened my mind a little more and enlightened me.
You know how much I love to layer a shift dress. I chose to play on the tailored element and team it with a Charles Tyrwhitt tailored shirt. I’m can’t get enough of statement necklaces, so I added a girly touch with this necklace from Primark. It’s been sat with tags on for over a year (yes, I hope you’re tutting with disdain!). We photographed this dress over the Easter holidays whilst I was up in Lancashire with the boy. I chose comfortable footwear over court shoes. However, with a leather, I think this relaxes the tailoring. When I read Rachel’s post last Friday, I found it interesting to see that we’d both wore this dress for date night!
Here’s how Rachel wore it:
I’m not going to ask who styled it best, because I’m totally smitten with Rachel’s edgy choice of bare legs and boots. Not to mention the colour of that bag! So, onward the dress travels to Debbie. As always, I’m intrigued to see how Debbie mixes it up with her love of colour and mod tendency!
As always, much love,
