This coral maxi dress could change your life

Is it just me, or is this coral maxi dress from Miss Selfridge extra special?

I need an excuse to buy it…maybe an invite to a swish garden party; or a cocktail reception on a roof terrace (do those things ever happen in actual real life?) Maybe I can just count the forthcoming Bank Holiday as a reason, or treat it as a reward for another mammoth walk I’m doing on Saturday (what is wrong with me???)

And if I buy it, I need to arrive at my fictitious event in even more effortless style by slinging this cropped lace waistcoat over the top – oh, yumma.
