Hello all! As you can probably tell by the pictures, this isn't Vanese today. So Hi, i'm Nadia, I have a little ol' blog called Dressing Table Delights that consists of mainly beauty/makeup posts with a few fashion posts chucked in here and there!
Vanese kindly asked me if i'd like to do a guest post and of course i agreed - i love Vanese's blog so i was really pleased she asked me! I have an outfit to show you today, hope you like...
If you live in England you will understand how hit and miss the weather is - in May we had a heatwave now it's back to wind and rain (boo!) so a good mix of winter and summer clothing is essential. Hence why, tights are a must and my trusty parka jacket never lets me down! I wore this outfit for a bit of shopping, nothing special, i needed to be comfy, casual and warm!
An absolute favourite of mine at the moment are skater dresses. This one has been pushed back in my wardrobe for such a long time so i just had to get it out for you guys! What i love about skater style dresses are the fact they are soo flattering - anyone can wear them as they go in at the waist then skim across the hips meaning they give you an hourglass shape. They can also be dressed up with a blazer and heels or dressed down with tights and dollies like i have. It's such a versatile dress and i love the 'red wine' colour especially in winter. They are also well worth the money (cost per wear) as you can wear it in many different ways. Lots of shops offer skater dresses now and if you're looking for even more of bargain - this ebay seller does lots of colours for only £9.
Dress - Desire Clothing
Denim Shirt - Topshop
Parka Coat - New Look
Belt - Primark
Watch - Michael Kors
Tights - Primark

Looks like quite a long list there, or is it just me?
At the moment i'm really loving 'basics' i'm preferring to spend my money on plainer items that i can wear all the time and make it look different by a change of jacket or accesories (like this dress) rather than a show-stopping item that isn't really versatile! What do you think? Is it important to have less items that are versatile or more individual pieces?
And don't you think i'm dressed like it's winter when it's supposed to be June! I wonder when the sun will come back out.. soon i hope *fingers crossed*.
See you soon!
