WIA comes to an end...

Counting down…

By adding a simple black sweater over this green dress I was able to wear it for work and tip a nod to the midi trend at the same time. It's probably not an outfit I'd wear again as this dress is made for the evening - it deserves fab shoes and delicate, timeless jewellery.

As with every other dress I buy I imagined that I would wear this with killer heels, on a balmy summer evening, for a night out with OH. In reality, I thanked the cold weather for allowing me to raid my hosiery and scarf collection. You'll be seeing a lot more of both over the coming months.

Saved from the charity bag at the beginning of this challenge, this dress was worn for a night out with OH, not a balmy summer one but a belated birthday supper in my favourite local bistro.

So, that's it, I've worn everything.

Well… almost. I haven't worn my spotty dress but I'm keeping it anyway. I wore this to my friends wedding in Sicily in 2006 and I love it. When I wear it again I'll let you know, I just need another wedding in sunnier climes!

  5. COngrats on completing the challenge!

    I actually really love outfit 1 - but then I don't go out in the evening enough to justify all my eveng dresses, so I'm always looking for a way to make them work for daytime. I really love the colour and the length, it goes so well with a simple jumper.

  6. well done Hazel, you did brilliantly! Love your black dress x

  9. I'm a little late to the party here, but I'm happy to see that you finished! Do you think you'll be able to wear the polka dot dress to a holiday party or for a fancy dinner? You can go somewhere casual and act like you have somewhere very important to go afterwards, even if it's just home with a glass of wine!
