OOTD | Parties in pink

Pink French Connection smock dress 01

It's a tale often told that PR girls like a drink. Well I can hardly be offended by such remarks when photos swarm the internet of me with a glass of champs in hand, can I? Last week, me and my girls took the train down to the London for the CIPR Excel awards - the cream of the crop in the PR world!

It was clearly fate when French Connection got in touch to see if they could help with a party frock, and I was instantly drawn to this bright number (which is now conveniently on sale!)

We didn't win any awards, but to be shortlisted as the top six small consultancies in the whole country is amazing. We're such a close knit team up in Leicester, so we just went to soak up the atmosphere, have a boogie and mingle with other PR folk. After the ceremony was over, we made friends on our table and were swept away to Duck & Waffle, how swanky can you get? Quite a leap for a small town girl to be 40 stories up, daiquiri in hand!

French Connection never lets me down, and it's always a dream to work with them. I still own and love that beautiful leather biker jacket, and this frock is coming with me to Wireless next weekend. We were approached four or five times at the CIPR awards by those admiring our brights - and rightly so!


  1. Being shortlisted is such an amazing achievement, well done! :) This is a gorgeously bright dress and I love that you can dress it up to wear to awards or dressed down at a festival too. Can't wait to see how you style it at Wireless!
