Grown up choices



Now if I'd been a smarter shopper this year and planned my wardrobe better then I would be whooping for joy and parting with my hard earned pennies for this little number.

DKNY Pleated cummerbund dress £210

The Net-a- Porter description is pure grown up delight 'Navy instantly gives an air of elegance and combined with the intricate pleating and cummerbund this is a classy cocktail dress that can be pared down with sandals for a chic grown-up day look. Exchange the cummerbund for a belt to add color.'

If I had the funds to purchase this dress then I wouldn't be sharing with you!

This would fall into the 50 essential wardrobe buys probably under the category of day dress or understated evening dress for gallery opening invitation (as if!)

  1. This is a lovely dress! I have a Jean Muir black dress and always thought about an appropiate looking belt-seeing this has inspired to get a cummerbund-its a great look!

  9. You are right, that dress is a grown-up choice, tres elegant. Perhaps DKNY will have something even better next year that you can plan for?
