I've Never Regretted Buying Any of These 7 Dresses

"What a surprise—she's wearing another dress," say people who are probably fed up with following me on Instagram. If, however, you haven't muted me and my ridiculously expansive collection of dresses, maybe it's because you share the same shopping passion. Which means you might enjoy this story, as it's dedicated to the places where I buy my favourite ones from.

I'm talking, of course, about the brands I have confidence in going back to time and again for both the special-occasion dresses but also the day-to-day ones I like to wear to the office. If there's one item I know I can feel myself in, it's a relatively modest, long-sleeved, probably bright or printed midi, and there are now labels that really specialise in that kind of easy, do-it-all dress.

I'm willing to share the knowledge. From the secret high-street sources stocking really expensive-looking styles that I'd instruct anyone to add to their office wardrobe ASAP to the lesser-known names I'd head straight to for a standout wedding guest ensemble, here's my little black book of dresses.
