WhatLauraWore: Pampering Day

Today I thought I’d share with you an outfit I wore recently to the beauty salon.  I was having a gel manicure and pedicure, celeb brow treatment and eyelash extensions in preparation for my holiday so I knew I’d be in the salon a long time and wanted to wear something comfortable yet stylish.  Black always looks effortlessly smart and it is a colour that I find very easy to wear… even if I’m pale without any makeup on!

The outfit centred around one of the plus size dresses that I recently got from Bon Prix.  The Frilly Hem Jersey Dress retails for a purse friendly £19.99 and is one of those items that can be dressed up or down to suit the occasion.  I’m wearing it here with some leggings and ballet flats but it would look equally as good worn without the leggings and perhaps with some long boots.  I love how the frill hem makes it look like I’m wearing a skirt which keeps the look feminine, pretty and gives the look a bit of shape.  It has a flattering v neck too with a button fastening at the neckline which can be worn open or closed.  The long sleeves and soft, light fabric also make this a great layering piece too- I’ve found that it works really well under my leather jacket.

      Hiya hunI very much doubt it as I bought it last Christmas, gorgeous isnt it. Perhaps have a look in the store though as they always have such lovely accessories. River Island knitwear is the best!Laura xxx
