Dress of the Day: Black waterfall front dress from Miss Selfridge

Watrefall_dress For the second time this week, we find ourselves turning to Miss Selfridge in our hour of need, to soothe our sore eyes after all of the various fashion horrors we’ve inflicted on you (and ourselves) today.

This waterfall front dress is very “grown up” looking, and actually, the tailoring would make it perfect to wear with the trench coat and cloche hat we featured yesterday. At £45, it’s not the most expensive dress we’ve ever featured in this column, but we think it looks more expensive than it actually is, which is always a good thing.

Wear with stiletto heels and red lipstick for maximum impact.

    I really like this dress, especially the sleeves and the shape of the neckline.

    Hi, Fashion Police! (:
    I recently got engaged and my fiance’s parents are throwing us a dinner party to celebrate. They’re the really big, glamorous, luxurious people who go all on out when throwing parties, and I want to be dressed right. My boyfriend was my best friend way back in high school and all throughout college long before we ever started dating, so my new in laws know that I’m more of the plain “tee, jeans, and hoodie” kind of girl. I want to impress them, as well as everyone on their long (and quite unnecessary) invite list.
    I’m Asian, with fairly light skin, and I’m very petite – I’m only five feet one. It’s a fairly formal event and I have a fairly big budget. I don’t want to be TOO dramatic, but I do want to be fairly noticeable.
    Thank you! (:
