Grew Up At Midnight- Topshop Jersey Dress

I've never been a huge fan of Topshop (despite working there for two years) because a lot of their dresses just don't pass the test of time. They are either covered in sequins that fall off or are a bit too fashion forward to wear for years after a trend had died. Recently Topshop have been stocking some great t-shirt and jersey dresses and I've picked up loads in a variety of colours. They are great for work with smart flats or on the weekend with some converse and a biker jacket.

It's super cold at the moment so I layered up my latest Topshop dress purchase with my shirt I picked up in Brighton from Beyond Retro for a bit of a change from a plain black cardigan.

Maroon

Shirt: Beyond Retro
Necklace: Topshop
Ring: Topshop
Dress: Topshop
Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington
Shoes:Clarks boots c/o Spartoo

skull ring

Picked this up in the Topshop sale for £2.50, bargain!

Currently nursing the worlds worst hangover but had the best night out ever. You know it's a good night when it involves the police, a Morrissey look-alike and a heated argument about Britney Spears. Hope you are feeling better than me on this lovely sunny Sunday.

  13. I love this dress! I've got a question though; is it a little more sturdy in the waist than the cheaper brands? My other dresses with elasticated waists start to sag a little after a while :( x

    1. it's quite a loose fit for a size 16 in Topshop. You might be able to szie down. I've washed it a few times and it doesn't feel any more baggy x

  15. I never knew you used to work in Topshop Gem, I must admit I'm not a Topshop kinda girl, I don't think I've ever bought in Topshop brand new- only in charity shops.
    That dress is indeed lovely though xxx
