Dress: Primark | Shirt: Vintage | Hat: Forever 21 | Bag: Zara | Pumps: ASOS | Watch: Urban Outfitters

You may be wandering why I haven't got a single item of Topshop on, but alas, almost all of my pants are from there .. oi cheeky. I'm still not entirely sure on this dress as it seems to delightfully scoop all the bumpy bits I don't like and scream out how big my hips are. Who said black was slimming?! To avoid fitting in with the 24-year-old-leeds-girls-out-for-drinks look, I slipped this silky shirt on and tied it all together with this studded belt. Throwing on my F21 hat for good measure, I was ready to face Leeds for 20 minutes before I had to retreat and find an appropriate coat.

  17. Great outfit! I have a couple of tank midi dresses and I'm always a bit unsure when it comes to the unsightly hip bumps but always layer them up for modesty :) Where's your belt from?? x

  22. Ah that shirt is lovely, I bought a blouse in that colour in the sale from Peacocks but that suede effect looks snazzy on yours. I haven't been on a night out in a while but when I do I go for the comfort factor, I always look a tad out of place with the other ladies though!

  31. This kind of midi dress seems to me sound like very super and I think perfect and comfortable to wear on at any time. That dress looks like it was made for you, and you look stunning in it! Glad you were finally able to get outfit photos taken.
