Desk to Drinks Challenge With House Of Fraser:

Desk to Drinks Challenge With House Of Fraser. 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!!).

House Of Fraser

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. How pretty is this dress? Great for dressing up or down, don’t you think so too?

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. Haha. At first, I thought; Oh no! Oh, no, no, no, no!!

This dress will be too loud for a work themed post. 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!?

From Desk:

Firstly, 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.

To Drinks: 

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.

So what do you think of my outfit ideas? How would you also style this dress from desk to drink?

Firstly, Oasis Chelsea Floral Skater Dress: House Of Fraser. Everyone appreciates a fun night out. My two oldest children are bursting with tales of wild nights out, proms, and endless parties! When I was in school, there was never anything like to a prom! The only thing was a roller disco or a school dance under teacher supervision!

Proms were only mentioned in movies like Grease that I can recall. It is a huge phenomenon with American influences, similar to trick-or-treating during Halloween. As far as we are concerned, that is not a terrible thing because my older Boys both have happy recollections of their school prom nights.

My youngest children like trick-or-treating. I was kindly approached by House of Fraser to review one of their prom dresses Oasis Chelsea Floral Skater Dress.

A Ladies Tank Top For All Seasons:

Last But Not Least, A Ladies Tank Top For All Seasons. Womenโ€™s tank top UK. Even on a budget, I think you can be sustainable. Take this tank top I brought off the high street in Winter. I wore it in Winter, Spring and I think it will be great with nothing underneath and shorts in summer and a nice short-sleeved t-shirt in Autumn. Donโ€™t you think so too?

This is a great womenโ€™s tank top for layering, each season. I am so looking forward to wearing it in summer with my long maxi dresses too. I love that it is a knitted tank top too so it keeps me nice and warm.ย A Ladies Tank Top For All Seasons. So cosy.

Thank you so much for stopping by.

    That is a gorgeous dress, even if it wasn't the print you thought you ordered! I like it layered with the cardi for the office, and it's fantastic with the red heels for drinks!Away From The Blue Blog

    It's a really lovely dress, but I would totally wear it for work without covering it up with the cardie. I rarely wear anything that is not a bright colour or two, or three though so my colleagues are used to it!I love how a simple change like shoes can totally transform a look. (love your red shoes btw!)
