My Birthday Outfit: THAT Sellout M&S Constellation Midi Dress

what lizzy lovesmarks and spencer constellation midi dress birthday outfit

I got this Marks and Spencer dress at the end of August. I was shopping with Poppy for sixth-form clothes and saw it, fell in love and bought it. In fact, I loved the print so much that I bought the constellation top too. (£29.50, in stock in all sizes). You might recall that I wore the top with coated skinnies on a recent date night. I knew then that I wanted to wear the dress for my birthday meal. I also knew that it would prove to be popular. Sure enough, at the time of writing it’s sold out in every size, but I know there are plans to restock. (Click here to see)

I was going to team it with ankle boots but decided in the end to go for a pair of black suede bow heels. They were from Boden several seasons ago. I know some don’t like wearing black with navy, but to me, it’s an elegant combination, very French. Navy footwear would have looked too matchy matchy.

My bag is the *Alex wristlet leather clutch bag by Label Lab at House of Fraser (£45). It’s a fabulous bag, made from very tactile, soft leather. The handle loops through a ring to make it into a wristlet, always useful if one needs to hold something as well as a cocktail. Usually a camera in my case. It’s a useful size and works with all manner of colours and styles.

If you read my blog regularly, you’ll know that I love all things stellar and that I also have a small online accessories business. My silver double stars ring is from there (Danon at LizzyO, £25) and is available in gold too along with other matching items.

I loved wearing this constellation midi dress and I know it’ll become a “go-to” option for various events. I love how swooshy it is. I’m going to try it with my silver Supergas for a more casual daytime look, perhaps with a denim jacket.

Thank you very much for all of your lovely comments on my previous post, the one I wrote on my birthday, (which includes photos of the dress in action, rather than in posed shots). The archery I did with Ian and the children was really good fun, something different. I enjoyed every moment of what was a magical weekend.
