Daily Work Wear Style: Bright colours are professional

Green work wear dressHere I am today. Not the happiest of faces as it was quite a frustrating day. You know, one of those two steps backwards, then three steps sidewards types.

I’m wearing the Jane dress which I chose to have made in this green colour. It was quite a brave choice as I don’t really wear much green and this was quite a bright shade!

I was discussing it in the studio today and we all agreed that the green works because the fabric is silk. Silk has a beautiful sheen rather than a shine, so the colour works.

Anyway, this dress is very comfy and smart. It is great for work and I feel it shows you can wear a bright colour and still be work appropriate!

I went very casual with shoes today but I’ll show you another day how great this dress looks when you add some heels and other accessories!

p.s. I was being photo bombed by the bin. It normally misses out on having it’s picture taken, so enjoy!

So here is the video from yesterday.

Here is a little pic taken at the Colour evening the other week. I am the one in green in the middle and I’m standing with a couple of the guests.

The dress is Jane dyed in a crunchy apple green colour. I’ve never worn this shade before. It worked really well with black accessories. Here you can see I’ve styled it with a black necklace but I also had my fitted black jacket and black shoes. I kept the tights to a natural skin tone which worked well.
I couldn’t not wear a colour as the evening was about colour.
What do you think of the new dye to order shades?

Shop silk wrap dresses photo round up!

I thought I’d give you a round up of some of the pictures from my pop up shop last week! The shop featured the new Silk Line which is a range of dresses made of silk jersey. The range of dresses includes two wrap dresses. My favourite is the wrap dress Ava and I wore it in Navy with mid length sleeves at the private preview evening we had on the monday (before the week started!). The private preview was a fab start to the week and by the end of the evening a lot of Prosecco had been consumed!

The set up of the shop went well and I think it looked pretty good. Thanks to all the help from friends and family everything went very smoothly and made it all much less stressful!!
In the pictures I am the one fixing the coat on the mannequin! I put the coat on the mannequin because all of a sudden the weather went from spring to wet winter in two days!

I hope you enjoy these pictures if you couldn’t make it to the shop itself!!
Don’t worry though I’m planning popping up again!
