Dressing the part with House of Fraser

As you will have seen in my Banking for Victory post yesterday I got to meet Mary Berry last month.  My invite was fairly last minute so I hadn’t had much time to think of a suitable outfit.  Thankfully help was at hand and I was dressing the part with House of Fraser.

I was really surprised by the number of dresses available and was spoilt for choice. I don’t think it will come as too much surprise to regular readers that I went for a dress where blue featured quite heavily!

I chose the Izabel London A-Line Abstract Print Dress is a size 10.  Totally me right?  With changeable weather this was the perfect dress for me.  If the weather on the day had been kinder I would have gone for tights and heels, but it was wet and cold, so I opted for boots!

It was my first time wearing an Izabel London outfit, and actually I could have got away with a size 8, but the styling is such that it works just as well with a looser fit.

I’m a big fan of scooped necklines and look at me going all patterned again!  The dress is made from a 95% polyester/5% elastane mix, and washes well on a cool machine wash.

It’s the kind of dress that you can wear to a function and just as easily wear with leggings on a trip out with the kids.  I really love it.

Now, I don’t know about you but when I think of House of Fraser, I always think quality but I also think higher prices too.  Well can you believe this dress only cost £22, and actually it is currently on sale for £10!!  Certainly, if you are on a budget of up to £50 then you can definitely find a whole host of quality dresses at really affordable prices at House of Fraser.
