LBD for Work

Having been quite impressed with what I've seen online of Gok Wan's collection for TU at Sainsbury's, I went to looksee more closely today whilst I was shopping for my weekly veg.  I must admit overall I was impressed with the quality and colours. 

The peplum skirt and top were not great quality so I put them back. 

Peplum Top (I looked at black)
Peplum Top £30
The other reason for putting back the brightly coloured Tunic Dress was the thought of everyone and their mother wearing it, even though I really like it.  It's a great shape and colour for me.

Tunic Dress £30

What I did decide upon was this 40s inspired funnel neck dress for work.

Black Funnel Neck dress - £45
It has panelling around the waist to cinch you in.  It has an elastic underskirt to smooth you down and give you a great shape and sucks you in!  The only downside is that is takes a while to get on, then to zip up the gold zip at the back, then takes time to get off as it is so snug!  Additionnally, as it is man-made fibres, and snug, it may mean I may get a tad hot!  Only time will tell....

It looks good though!  I don't know about you, but I feel grown up and elegant in dresses.  This is very sexy yet demure, a great fit and super price! I will pair with my Russell & Bromley nude patent courts - elongates the legs!

So for those of you, who like me, cannot afford the Roland Mouret Galaxy Dress....

...this is for you!

Would love to hear your thoughts!
