Dinner time in a Cut-Out Dress

Remember the mint green blazer? Well, this black cut-out dress was the second item that Glamorous sent me in August and I wore it to a friend's birthday dinner on Thursday.

As the weather becomes slightly less cheery, I always find myself leaning towards more neutral colours for clothes: black,whites, greys but maintaining an air of fun with bright make-up and accessories.

Since thursday happened to be one of those cooler September days, I was drawn to wearing this dress. I love the cut-out detailing at the neckline and in the back. This time round, as it was a late evening affair, I chose to wear the dress with some of the top buttons undone. The dress is available in black and jade green 

The bag is from Urban Outfitters and was the other half of my BOGOF

Next time I wear it, which will probably in the thick of autumn/winter, I will most likely choose to wear the buttons all the way to the top (the sensible thing to do in cold weather) with a pair of collar tips and a nice woolly cardigan to keep warm.

So for dinner, we went to a vegetarian restaurant, a first for many of us which included myself. I wouldn't say that I am a big meat-eater but I do like to gnaw at a bone once in a while...However I was excited to give a meatless-meal a try. 

Greens is a homely, little restaurant in Didsbury, Manchester that serves yummy veggie dishes. The menu is seasonal which adds to charm of the place. I had a lovely spinach, pistachio and feta filo pie with cinnamon tomato sauce and honey, which sounded so interesting on the menu that I had to give it a try (I forgot to instagram it...current food porn shortage!).

The pie had such an interesting mix of flavours that I would love to one day recreate. Aside from the incompetence of one of the waiters, she was adamant we underpaid yet lacked simple maths skills, it was a lovely experience and I would probably visit again but in a smaller group to avoid such mishaps.
