Thrift Inspiration,

Over at Net-A-Porter, the range 'T' by Alexander Wang features this long black maxi jersey dress for £108. Its quite elegant, in a comfy and relaxed way too:



I found my equivalent-its a 90s dress by Miss Selfridge which I purchased at my local Sue Ryder charity shop for £5.95 last week.

I've paired it with a grey marl camisole underneath for a sporty relaxed feel-oh and because its not that warm at the moment either, LOL!!


Wishing you all a very Happy Easter, I will be having Easter holidays with the children for a couple of weeks and will be having an online break too, so I'll certainly be back with you all later on this month!

Awesome!
I was just reading the new Vogue and they were featuring long skirts and dresses for daytime for summer. Your dress is going to be perfect!

I honestly can't see any difference! I had that Miss Selfridge dress way back when, great quality isn't it?

You "know" me well enough by now to know that I will RAVE over this dress! I'll miss you, Sharon - but I, too, took a short break while my granchildren were here.

Enjoy your Easter holiday. I'll try to survive fashion-wise till you return :)
