Last week House Of Fraser asked me, if I would like to take part in a fun fashion outfit challenge. Share an outfit that can be dressed down for the office and yet can also be styled up for a night out : The Desk To Drinks Challenge. (Just in case you go out then out out!!)
As part of the fun challenge, I got to choose one of their beautiful prom dresses to share how I would style it.
It just so happens I am looking for a new job so a nice dress for work and after work drinks with friends would be perfect.
I picked out a lovely plain cream dress, with 50’s styled cars. One that would not stand out too much, blending in nicely for work. It would have also looked great for a night out with chunky blue shoes to stand out a bit more. For some reason on ordering I forgot to select the car pattern. Doh, what am I like!?
When my dress arrived then it was a big surprise as it was not one I thought I ordered.
At first I thought;
This dress will be too loud for work. House of Fraser kindly offered me an exchange, even though it was my fault, but I decided to stay with this dress as I realised how lovely it was.
It could be me after all!?
I would just need to tone it down for work and only wear some nice heels for drinks.
Easier than I first thought!?
I styled the dress with a black cardigan and low heeled boots. It would look great in an office with a black blazer and black flat shoes, which are next on my shopping list.
It looks lovely dressed down for work.
This dress is so pretty and loud I think it looks best with plain shoes or sandals. Black, white, orange or red would be perfect. I went for red.
Love it with my red shoes..
What do you think of my outfit ideas?
How would you style this dress from desk to drink?
I was sent this dress from House of Fraser. All thoughts are my own. I was not paid for this post. Thanks for supporting the brands that I work with.
