It’s grey, jersey and drapey – the Whistles Selma bodycon dress (without too much of the bodycon – fortunately)

This evening I’ve been running a Style Event at a firm of Accountants in the City Centre. I thought that I would finish the evening by showing everyone a really sexy piece of clothing – my new padded (and unworn) socks from M&S. I know, how stylish can you get? I love them – once you’ve had the benefit of padding in your socks, other socks just won’t do. Well, it reinforces the point that I am a very “feet on the ground” kind of stylist.

For the event I wore the Selma jersey bodycon dress from Whistles (£125) which is really comfortable, not to mention a good “blank canvas” kind of dress to accessorise. I also wore a resin necklace from Hobbs and I pinched my husband’s watch to wear, just so that I could keep an eye on the time and to stop me from talking all night!  My LK Bennett grey Sledge shoes had another outing. They were an expensive purchase at the time but I don’t have many pairs of heels and they go with everything, so I’ve got my head around that one now.

I hope that everyone’s week is going well so far. I am co-hosting an awards ceremony in Birmingham on Thursday night and am just hoping that the children avoid all sickness bugs and colds that are doing the rounds until then. You know that feeling when you’re hanging on by a thread and just keeping your fingers crossed? That’s where we’re at!

    Dress is great but it was padded socks that caught my eye! I can only find men's padded ones on M&S site – did you buy yours in-store?

      Hi Jane – sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I'm a pretty big fan of the socks too and yes, I did buy them in store. Just a small one too so they must be a good seller – if that helps!

    This dress looks great on you. Can I just check with you how tall you are as I'm thinking of buying this dress online for a race night at the weekend but wonder if it will be too long (I'm 5ft 4")
