Outfit: Shoeper Challenge 2012 #8 and the Wrong Choice of Tights?




Dune back patent2

I checked out the forecast this morning and apparently we are to have highs of 16°C (60.8F) today. That’s warm compared to the temperatures we’ve had so far this year. Unfortunately I was already dressed by this point and I fear black tights might have been a mistake. Ah well, too late now.


For the first time all week I have nothing planned for this evening, so I’m going to chill out and watch Mary Portas’s show about British manufacturing.


This dress is a little on the large side now but I think it’s OK with a belt. I don’t really want to get rid of it as it’s so versatile and works all year round.


These shoes are one of my newer acquisitions, purchased in TK Maxx the other week when I was in Bristol. They are by Dune and although I am not usually a fan of plain black pumps, I really like this pair. I think it could be the patent leather that makes the difference.
