THE £11 OUT OUT DRESS

Dress: Quiz
Shoes: New Look (Similar black heels)
Bag: Mulberry

Without sounding like a clothing snob I didn't think I'd ever feature something from Quiz on my blog. There's a shop in Northampton and they put such glitzy bodycon dresses in the window that are so far from anything I'd ever wear that I completely avoid going in at all costs. Partly because I scoff at said glitzy dresses, and partly because I'm way to old to be dressing like that nowadays.

Anyway, I kind of have to eat my words (and my attitude) to the shop as I rather like this embroidered number that spawned from there. My friend dragged me in a couple of weeks ago and I was pleasantly surprised that wayyyy past the glitzy jungle towards the back are some normal looking things! And this dress was a mere £11 so I can scoff no more.

I do hope you're all having a grand weekend. I made some brownies, then felt bad about eating so much brownie that I gymmed. I also watched a lot of Dance Moms. Also Also I made the decision to sell my DSLR and my compact camera which are both listed on ebay if you fancy a peek. I reckon I'm going to take the plunge and buy the Olympus Pen. If you have it - is it any good?

  2. I have one dress from Quiz and I love it but I never go in haha! I like the one that's in House of Fraser - you kind of don't know it's Quiz until you look at the label!x

  4. I know exactly what you mean about Quiz, it's one of those shops that 12 year old me would have probably loved to have shopped in but 26 year old me stays away! That dress is lovely though, and it looks like you've got some very similar shoes to me from New Look which are insanely comfy!

  5. What a gorgeous dress! I think a belt would really pull it together, I think I'm going to have to venture into quiz now x

  6. I totally get what you mean I always said how cheap and nasty quiz looked from outside, then they got a concession one in my local Debenhams and I was converted!!
    Love the dress and the whole outfit!!

  7. I loved Quiz when I was 18, but it is a bit cheesy now! This dress is lovely.

  10. You look great!!!
    I completely agree with you on Quiz. It's not somewhere I've ever shopped and would think to shop, for reasons as you mentioned.. But I love this dress. :)
