High Street Outlet is one of my most visited websites. I love great quality High Street pieces, and totally love a bargain, so it stands to reason that I would love a site that offers up to 70% off the recommended retail price. The website has new lines added every week, with warm winter coats being added at the moment, so this is not just a site where you can pick up a bargain to put away until next summer, you can buy things that you can actually wear now.
I am lucky enough to have a lovely relationship with High Street Outlet where they often send me clothes to test drive and review. Most recently I was sent a truly stunning, versatile dress, the EX Kaliko Ladies Womens Mauve Purple Black Joanna Occasion Party Dress. This is a perfect Autumn dress, the fabric is double layer, with a stretchy underlayer in black, and then a purple printed floral layer that is almost like chiffon. The dress is semi fitted, and has a ruched panel at the side with a kind of draped detail. This is great if you have a larger tummy area, as the ruching draws the eyes away from the stomach.
This dress is very elegant, and can easily switch between being a day dress to a dress suitable for evening occasions. The chiffon style fabric gives it a dressed up edge, but add a smart black blazer and this will take you easily into a work meeting. The fact it has sleeves also ticks a lot of boxes – making it a warmer option for Autumn, great for those who want to cover their upper arms, and also more demure for those occasions when flashing the flesh just isn’t an option.
I have worn this dress for Sunday Lunch, and also for a night at the Theatre. It is a dress that can easily take you from day to night, and one which also looks great with tights – a great point with winter on it’s way. And, if you still need persuading that this is a dress that your wardrobe needs, did I mention it now costs just £9.99. Yes, you heard right, this stunning dress is less than £10 and is available in sizes 8-18.
