5 on Friday | The Dress of Dreams, and other things to buy this week

I should never have opened up the Warehouse website. I swear they’re just doing this to taunt me now:

Warehouse light blue lace shirt dress

This has to be one of the prettiest dresses I’ve seen in a long time: it’s also £100, and totally impractical for my lifestyle – especially as we head towards autumn, and pretty pastel dresses become just a distant memory. If I DID have a spare £100 lying around, though, I’d have absolutely no hesitation in snapping this one up… even although I have absolutely no excuse to wear it! Speaking of pretty dresses, though…

Chi Chi London Strappy Back Midi Dress

Chi Chi London Strappy Back Midi Dress

It’s the shape of this dress I love more than anything. It’s totally simple, but the fullness of the skirt – which is so characteristic of Chi Chi London dresses – really gives it a bit of wow factor: as does the criss-cross design of the straps at the back.

This is, quite literally, a lovely jumper. I have a bit of a weakness for slogan sweaters, which are great with jeans, but sometimes even better with something unexpected – like a floral midi skirt, say.

Office Natalie Dorsay Point Cour

Office Natalie Dorsay Point Court Shoes

I’m a little bit obsessed with Office at the moment: I bought a pair of their ‘On To Point’ court shoes a few weeks ago, and  they’ve been on constant rotation ever since: not only do they go with everything (I got the nude suede version, but I want them ALL, basically), they’re also one of the most comfortable pairs of heels I’ve ever owned, which makes them so easy to wear. As I say, I’d love to have them in a few more colours, but I think the next pair of Office shoes I go for might have to be these ‘Natalie’ courts, which have a d’orsay cut and sweetheart vamp: the shape of these is just so beautiful they look like they could easily be worth more than just £65!

Apologies in advance if this dress is already sold out in your size: it’s on sale, which means it’s in low supply, but that also means it’s only £18, so if your size IS in stock, you have the chance to get yourself a bargain. I think it could be the perfect everyday dress – dress it up or down, as required!
