Outfit Post: Leatherette

Firstly, I must apologise for the tiredness that is apparent on my face in these photos. I'd just tumbled out of bed, had a shower and got dressed, all in the space of about 15 minutes. The Post Office was holding a package to ransom and I had to get there in time for the 3 minute Saturday morning opening period. Royal Mail are not my friends at the moment, in case you hadn't guessed.

This leather look dress was one of my sale bargains. I'd looked at it when it was full price but was obviously having a frugal day (rare) as I decided that £35 was far too much to pay. Consider me delighted when I found it in the sale for £15, and the last one in my size! I think we all know that that means it is fate and that it must be purchased immediately. Plus, it has pockets. Pockets in a dress are never a bad thing.

I'm surprised this aran cardigan has never appeared in an outfit post before, seeing as, seemingly, it's been surgically attached to me for the last month or so. I'd been coveting a similar one from Topshop for ages (like this one but cream) but really couldn't justify spending £48 on a cardigan. Thankfully ASOS were having one of their amazing special offers on this one and I got it for the grand sum of £19.20. Unfortunately it's now back up to full price at £40, otherwise I'd surely be buying it in both tobacco and navy too.

I actually wore this outfit to work yesterday (glorious dress down day, I adore thee) but liked it so much that I'm wearing it again today. Not that I'm doing a lot. A sojourn into town to covet things I can't afford is on the cards, as is some sort of caffeinated beverage, buying of hair dye (my roots have reached critical proportions) and making of soup. It's such a rock 'n' roll lifestyle I lead.

In other news, the gorgeous Bee interviewed me for a little feature on her blog so do head on over and check that out if you get a minute!
