Here is what I found lurking in the Boden sale.
My favourite Loulou dress in my favourite pattern - stripes.
I have to say I am not that impressed with my photography skills in this picture as it looks much better in the mirror.
And if I hadn't been in such a rush I would have swapped the belt for a thinner one and belted it a notch tighter.
The colours are charcoal and caramel which blend well with a lot of my winter shoes and boots.
As our British weather is pretty foul I expect I shall get at least 9 months a year wear from this dress.
As I ordered this in December it won't come out of my 2013 clothing budget.
Today I am off to John Lewis in Liverpool as I have booked an appointment with the stylist for my mum who will turn 70 on January 18th.
I gave her vouchers for Christmas and my daughter and I are hoping to find the perfect outfit for her party.
