OOTD - Little Black (Thrifted) Dress

Tuesday, 29 January 2013

I think I may have established one of my photographic issues is that when I have been processing my images through pic monkey, I seem to be loosing some of the image quality. I saved the above collage on the highest image quality and it has made some difference, although they still aren't fantastic - I really need to try some outside shots in daylight, but I'm a bit uninspired by my own garden and haven't got the guts to go elsewhere yet. Work in progress I think.
Anyway, the above OOTD is my £4 little black dress that I thrifted. I'm told every should own a little black dress. I don't didn't. I own a little black pencil skirt, which is incredibly high waisted and always receives lots of compliments from men and women alike. Anyway, I spotted this in my most successful charity shop, and even though it was only a size 10 decided to risk it. It's more stretchy than I expected, and it's really versatile. The above outfit was a work day outfit, but I have also worn it on a night out - minus the shirt and tights with some killer heels - the perfect day to night dress!
I realised that despite adding the large handbag and skinny belt something was still missing from this outfit. I have since established that it is a statement necklace over the top of the shirt, which I have now invested in.
What do you think of my "classy schoolgirl" inspired outfit?


  1. I don't have a LBD either! Will have to invest in one soon. Really like your bag! (The pictures look good by the way, but you can always use photoshop or something similar to make them a little brighter) :)



    1. Thank you! I like really bright white pictures on other people's blogs but never seem to achieve them myself!
      I've just realised I didn't put the outfit details on!!! My bag is river island from last year and the short is superdry

  2. very classy schoolgirl ;)


  3. ooh that's a very nice thrift shop find
    It does look very versatile.
    I agree with the person above me. Classy :D

  4. I love this outfit it's so preppy ^.^
