Today I bring you an OOTD and designer double all in one post, with a little celeb inspiration thrown in too. I’ll start by taking you back to July, when the amazing Batman x Lazy Oaf collection hit stores and the collection sold out quickly after (read my post on the collection here). One piece that really stood out to me was the Batman dress (pictured below), a bodycon piece covered in different Batman logos. This was the piece that sold out the fastest after being worn by Cheryl Cole and Jesy from Little Mix. While I thought I was never destined to own the frock of my dreams, I then went shopping in Liverpool recently and came across an absolute mountain of amazing copies, for around £10 and under! Independent boutiques were going Batman mad, and these dresses were everywhere, so I obviously had to grab one!
If you’re in or around Liverpool, it’s easy to get your hands on one of these frocks, just head to the St. John’s Centre where I can guarantee you every boutique has a version of this dress. For those who need to order online, I’ve found tonnes of these for under £10 on Ebay, so you don’t have to be left out either! Just click here to see some of the sellers offering up this dress.
I thought I’d show you how I wore my dress, as Cheryl and Jesy were sporting theirs for an evening, whereas this is the kind of comfy frock I’d rather wear in the day, as the long sleeves make it nice and warm for winter. I picked out key colours in the dress to match up with my accessories, so mustard and red were of course my first port of call. I’m wearing a Primark chunky scarf to add to the cosy effect, as well as my Timeless red boots and red River Island bag to really bring out the colour. For those interested, Deichmann have a a similar pair of these comfy boots on their site here. To keep the look in check and not too OTT, I opted for a black vintage coat and black Primark leggings, which help to play down the busy print for day.
Here’s another shot of the dress without the coat so you can see the similarity between it and the original. I really think the difference is quite imperceptible and you’d have to really inspect it up close to know it’s not the Lazy Oaf dress. I know I’ll get tonnes of wear out of this during winter as it really does keep you warm and creates a great base layer for a fun outfit. That’s it for today’s OOTD and designer double post, let me know what you think by leaving me a comment below or tweeting me @MillieDelacoe. Until next time…
