The Debenhams sale is in full swing. Bundle time! This grey shirt dress from the department store’s excellent BETTY JACKSON. BLACK range is going at half price: just £25, down from £50. It’s 45″ / 115 cm long, and 94 per cent cotton. You can buy in-store or online.
There’s something very Edwardian maid-ish about this number, isn’t there? I like it: with its pin tucks and little puff sleeves, it’s as pretty as it is demure. And far chicer than those boob-popping, dry clean only strapless numbers that are crowding out the rest of the Debenhams sale rail.
