Ya’ll know by now that I really don’t enjoy dressing for formal occasions so, when I was invited to attend Parfois’s A/W preview dinner recently I was in a bit of a fluster about what to wear…
Its not that the event would be particularly fussy in terms of dress sense but, they put an exceptional amount of work into the presentation of their beautiful dinners so I think its nice to put that extra effort into how I present myself!
After faffing around for quite some time this is what I came up with- I have such a thing for burnt orange so was delighted to find this coated midi skirt in the ASOS sale a while back; I paired that with open toes & an open shirt to finish the look in a way that wasn’t too ‘officy’.
Little personal touches are what make a look your own & ensure that you’re wearing the outfit rather than the outfit ‘wearing you’. For this reason I added a more chunky shoe to stop the finished look from being too girly which just isn’t my style.
It was a stunning night to attend, as I knew it would be from their previous event earlier in the year. It’s amazing to see brands go that extra mile to make events memorable… and very insta-worthy!
Hope you guys like the look xx
