Friday outfit fun: posh party frock

We've all been there. You've got to dress to impress for an important occasion: meeting the 'in-laws' / posh tea party / friend's wedding / the races (delete as appropriate). You don't mind splashing the cash for a brand new outfit... but you want to invest in items that you'll wear again.

Under the pretence of 'researching' (well, I do work at ASOS HQ, remember?) and in a totally-not-skiving-honest-if-my-boss-is-reading-this, I scoured ASOS.com for a solution to this oh-so common Style SOS - why not give this fail-safe outfit a whirl?

This floral-print silk tea dress has a vintagey feel and is super pretty. The V-neck, button-through front is ultra flattering, as is the gathered waist. Team with this grey drapey waterfall blazer £65 ASOS (not pictured) in chillier climes. The dress is a statement in itself, so keep accessories fairly low-key in soft shades of mink: a classic Chanel-esque quilted bag and too-cute peep-toes. Neutral tones also have the wear-with-anything factor, ensuring you get your money's worth! Special occasions are an excuse to bring on the bling; try a bold cocktail ring and these gorgeous chandelier-style earrings to rev up the wow-factor a few notches.

This is the perfect combination to have on stand-by for those last minute party invites: you need never have another what-to-wear moment again. Well, not this week, anyway...

  6. I tried my bestest to pick individual pieces that are all equally as gorge - and more importantly can be worn more than once. I've lost count of the 'wedding outfits' I've bought in a rush and literally worn for one day, then never again.

    But those earrings will add a touch of decadence to any ensemble - and the shoes are just delish. Even if I *do* say so myself... ;)

  8. Have seen this very similar alternative to the sadly sold out frock. It's made of cool cotton and is a snip in the sale at only £21! As I write, sizes up to 16 are available. I'm buying one now. x
