French Connection always make fabulous occasionwear so I headed straight there for the first dress. As you know I am loving the monochrome trend right now so thought it was only right that I should base the outfit around this bold striped number.

I kept on the monochrome theme with the clutch bag and the subtle spots on the fascinator. I do love an excuse to wear ridiculous headwear!
