This dress is the perfect example of the phrase 'the picture doesn't do it justice'. In the space of 24 hours I have stopped twice in front of two different branches of Warehouse to ogle this, but looking at the picture on the website it looks a bit ugly. You'll have to trust me that it's not, and that my teaming it with winter layers is just a cunning way of trying to justify buying it. For the next couple of months, wearing it alone is just not an option, so here's a way to winter-proof it for the time being. In Summer it'll look just as cute with black espadrilles.

Longsleeved top and leggings £7 and £12 Dorothy Perkins. 'Impact' paisley print dress £60 Warehouse, green leather boots £39 (were £130) Minette.
