    I think the second dress would look better with the black polo neck and black tights!

    Does it actually matter how you look in lectures??

    Interesting, unusual, I like it.

    I stay away from colours (black, gray and white are my staples), you've inspired me to be braver. The second one looks more like weekend shopping kind of outfit. Wear what you feel comfy in to lectures, and you look comfy enough, not try-hard or OTT as suggested. I think you look great.

    Life is too short to reserve outfits purely for 'going out'.

    Also, lectures for me involve 2 hours travelling on trains also.
    :eek:

    The pussybow on that cardigan would be a little too much and clash with the dress no?

    Awesome shade of brown though. yummy.




    Coolio Are there any of your outfits on TSR? Id like to look




    Can you ellaborate?




    woah! Subliminal! :eek: :eek: :eek: - and damn funny :laugh:




    Awesome ideas! That teal top is actually a long top/dress! I'll team it with some black tights and those tan mary janes then take a pic when I have time :yep:
    If you like the colour of the peacocks cardi, BAY Trading currently have a gorgeous sweater dress in a similar colour that ties at the neck. I tried it on the other day (i'm 5ft 1...so small too!) and it's really flattering. It would look awesome with your brown shoes. It could be brightened up with a colourful scarf (I find purple goes nice with brown and green would be nice and autumn-y) or some chunky beads :-)

    I like them both but I honestly think the first one would look better without the polo neck underneath... do you have a vest or something you could wear instead?
    It does look better, but its way too cold with the chiffon material and short sleeves

    The first one would be alright, but lose the polo neck.
    How? I'm in Durham. It's freeeeezing up here.

    I like outfit 1, I would get rid of the belt, however...and is that a mulberry???

    I like outfit 2 in principle but the dress doesn't fit right.

    tbh, I don't like the idea of wearing a polo under a normal dress as you have done in outfit 1 - though you do manage to pull it off! A fitted cardi would look far better, imo.

    I wear tea dresses, tights and heels to lectures on a regular basis...no harm in getting dolled up.

    Unless it's as cold in your lecture as it is outside, I'm not sure how it's a problem. Just whack a cardi on, a scarf and a thick coat for when you're out in the cold.

    EDIT: haha, just noticed minimo wrote the same thing

    Yes quite a few people have said that. But a fitted cardy would not work with the puffed sleeves on that dress

    Really like the first one, 2nd one makes you look larger than you are. No offense or anything.

    I think you're significantly overthinking this.
