Let's just call me Illy Melrose for today as I'm so ill. I've had the flu lingering for a few days and after last nights partying at the Daily Mix Halloween party I've been well and truly hit by the flu. Luckily I shot this outfit a few days ago, so I do have something to show you guys! Another addition to my smock-drobe, Yeap my whole wardrobe is a variety of smocked dresses, is this Corduroy number from ASOS. I love cord material, it reminds me of when I was about 13 and used to wear those god awful red corduroy mega flared trousers. I used to think I was the coolest kid ever. It's a material that sort of went out of fashion, but it's slowly coming back. This dress is the same style and fit as my usual The White Pepper smocks which I love just in a much chunkier fabric. I bought a size 8, so I'd say size down a bit because ASOS oversized, means OVERSIZED. It attracts hair, dust and all other bits and bobs, but it's nothing a decent lint roller wont remove. All in all, big love for this dress. Cant wait to wear it with tights, a fluffy cardigan and big chunky boots.

  1. I think you can pull off anything! I'd probably look ridiculous in a corduroy dress. It's amazing on you though!

  15. Yes! Put that in my ASOS basket a few days ago but hesitated to purchase because I thought it might be hard to wear. I'm getting it now though, it's plain but has a great texture to work with. Fab Fab!

  23. Such an amazing dress, the corduroy adds a little quirk to a simple smock dress. Now I want one!

  36. Love this dress! Wouldn't have thought the hideous cord from my younger days would be coming back in the form of such a nice dress. Also I've been looking for a fedora in my local Primark and they're nowhere to be found! Very upsetting. Feel better soon!

  37. When I read cordorouy dress I must admit I was expecting something hideous, but this is very cute.
    I know the cordorouy trousers you're on about as well, I had a striped pair from MK One. Awful.
