22 Grand job in the city that sounds nice

Dress: Primark
Cardigan: Ebay

Why hello there £5 dress. Yuppers this dress was only a fiver. A mere five pounds. To be honest it's not the most exciting of dresses but it has dogs on and a collar so it was an instant winner for me. This little ensemble is one of my work wears, it's an outfit that's been donned for the office twice now and I know it'll never make that transition into the realms of weekend wear again. Does anyone else do this? As soon as something is worn for the daily grind it instantly gets labelled as too dowdy for the weekend by me - oh I can be so fickle with my clothes!
I like how my face mimics a weekday too, hello frown.
Not much else to bore you chaps and chapettes with really, I'm typing this with a belly full of spaghetti on toast (when the Tom cat's away the mice will....eat badly?) and I'm planning a catch up on the young apprentice to fill the rest of my evening, I love that programme purely for Nick.

  1. I'm the same, as soon as I've worn it for work it loses it's sparkle and feels tainted - glad I'm not the only one! x

  2. I love this dress - I saw it and now cannot for the life of me think why I didn't buy it!
    I don't really have a workwear wardrobe distinction.

  3. The young apprentice? Where have I been?!

    You look lovely, and for a fiver that's bloody impressive! I too am a fickle fred with my 'work wear' that is clearly acceptable to wear elsewhere, but obviously cant be, because I'm me. haha.

  6. Same, I have two wardrobes- work and play. The work wardrobe is by far the nicer selection but I hate to venture in there for social occasions. The heart wants what the heart wants after all!

  8. I like that the dogs make another pattern so from afar it looks almost baroque then up close you can see that it's dogs!

  9. Cute dress! I have a uniform for my job, but I can imagine being the same as you if I was to wear my own clothes. Infact, when I worked as a nanny I refused to wear the clothes I wore to work at the weekends. Too dowdy indeed! This dress is lovely though :) xx

  13. I really like the dress. I'm exactly the same, once I've worn something for work it doesn't feel special. X

  14. Love this dress, what an amazing bargain! I do the same - I'll buy something without deciding if it is for work or weekend but as soon as is worn for work then that's it! x

  15. Oooh bargain dress! It's really nice, think I'm going to have a little Primark haul come payday (this Friday!). Also, the title of this post reminds me of when one of my drunk friend misheard it. '22 hand jobs in the city', clearly he was a lucky boy...haha! x

  16. Oh lordy this is a bargain!! I'm a bit of a freak and rummage through the Primark sale section like a hounddd (reference to the print - aren't I hilarious.) The print is so cute though!

  28. Quite a lot of the things I've worn for work situations I've also worn day to day, or even on a night out and I wonder what that says about the things I wear to work, or what I wear on nights out! Haha.
    The dress is lovely and such a bargain for £5! xx
