Red Alert!

Hey guys!  I'm a bit late today, I couldn't drag my lazy ass out of bed after such a hectic week at work.  I went out for an amazing meal at Merchants in Warwick last night and must have been exhausted when I got in as I fell asleep in the middle of the big bang theory, that never happens!!  When I finally woke up today I dragged the boyfriend to Coventry to check out the Models Own Pro range (thanks for the tip off Maria!) The range is really nice and it's much better seeing it in the flesh rather than trying to work out what the polish might be like from the really crappy swatches on the Boots website.  I purchased four colours and I can't wait to try them out and share the results with you.

I am away for a couple of nights next week helping run a conference for work.  I have already decided to wear my new grey Oasis dress for the day of the conference and only need something casual for the night before but I am stumped as to what to wear for the evening meal on conference day.  I work in a very male dominated industry and the women that I do work with are not that interested in fashion and clothes so I already stand out like a sore thumb.  I really don't want to look too formal and want to be true to my style but it's so hard to find a middle ground.  I was thinking maybe this outfit with some black heels and red nail polish if I can bare to part with Models Own Pro Jack's Black that has been gracing my nails since it arrived.

 Dress: Warehouse
Cardigan: Peacocks

Look Models Own Pro! Excited!!

So what do you think guys?  Is this alright?  I'm thinking that it's not revealing and it's quite plain but it's lacy so a bit more interesting and the red stops it from being dull and too formal.  I actually wore it shopping today and it's also a good length, have I picked a winner?!


  1. I love it! I like how the red isn't really bright, it looks really nice paired with the black :)
    Can't wait to see how the Models Own Pro turns out for you! x

  2. i absolutely love that dress <3

  3. I'm intrigued now, what do you do for work? My work is mostly female dominated but they are also mostly older females and not really bothered about fashion. I kind of like being the glamourous librarian though! Hehe! This dress is very nice, just perfect for that night before the conference I think.

  4. I love the fact the red cardigan adds a pop of colour!

  5. I think that is the best compromise, I love the red and the lace does make it a LOT more interesting :)
