165 days to go: Magnificent Magenta - Michelle Obama Wardrobe Challenge, Day 4




I posted about this divine dress a few weeks back.
I bought it in the My-Wardrobe sale. At around £40 it was 70% off!

Essentially, it's a re-worked t-shirt dress but the cut, the colour and the quality of the cotton explains why such a simple dress originally cost around £200.
As Michelle looks like she is wearing her dress in warmer climes - I have wintered mine up with tights and boots.
I didn't have a narrow belt so wore this one again.
If you have time check out Cat's Michelle Obama Wardrobe Challenge Gallery and cast your vote.

I wore ...
Ciel dress
Boots and pearl ear-rings - Dorothy Perkins
Cardigan - M & Co
Tghts - Tesco
Belt - M & S
Pearls - Hong Kong Pearl Market

Now that's what I call a knockout! You look terrific, as does Mrs O.

Wow, that's a great look, Jane! I love 'both' of your outfits, the color is wonderful!

Cat said...

I love, love, LOVE this look on you. Aside from the boots and tights, I think that's the closest recreation of a Mrs. O outfit I've seen. I'd love to see it paired with black pumps in the summer.

see you there! said...

Twins! You sure replicated the look and it works for you. I agree you probably need the boots and tights right now but this will be wonderful in the spring with lighter leg treatment too.

I really like the dress, Jane. I'm sure it will be fantastic in the summer. I think I'd prefer it without the boots, with a nice pair of flats. Ciao. Antonella

This is a great look on you, Jane! It's totally classic; you can so easily change this dress up.

I'm really excited to see how Imogen's polyvore works for you. She's good.
