With the likes of Marco Pierre White and Gordon Ramsey having worked at the former site of this quaint little suburban restaurant and consistent accolades such as being voted London’s favourite restaurant along with its Michelin star, Chez Bruce attracts crowds from all over London. We were there because their lunchtime special allowed us unlimited BYO wine 🙂 (which was the ideal way to celebrate my boozy mate’s birthday; Happy Birthday Jules!!)
Picking an outfit wasn’t an easy feat as the after lunch plan was going to be a “go with the flow” kind of afternoon. I wanted to wear something that transitioned from the day to night and was wearable in a smart and casual environment. This classic black and white striped skater dress fitted the bill and what a handy choice it was too for taking me from a fancy restaurant to a local pub then to a bar and finally a dance floor!
I think skater dresses have a very flattering silhouette and the flared skirt makes the style fun and flirty! This is further heightened by the asymmetric stripes on this dress (which I’m a huge fan of as noted in my previous post: Office Hour to Cocktail Hour). I’ve added a thicker belt to emphasise the waistline and worn my colourful pink and red heels to brighten the look. The unusual shape of this Alexander McQueen clutch caught my attention immediately as I was browsing the sales last week and the striking colours made it the perfect accessory for today’s outfit.
