That Black Satin Midi-Dress That's Been All Over Your Instagram Feed? We've Tracked It Down

Oh, and it's a mere €34...

Because one can never own too many black dresses...

It's January, a month synonymous with the lust for change. Whether that be a wardrobe updatea new fitness routine or new hair cut – we want change and we want it now. 

Of course, a lot of us are also having a long hard think about our careers. Maybe it's time to ask for that promotion? Or perhaps it's something simple like finally getting onto maintenance about changing the water filter? Hell, maybe you should just quit your job altogether. If you're in the latter camp, and are tempted by the idea of a career change, join the club. January is the most popular month of the year for new job searches meaning if you're on the hunt for a new job, you're going to need some pretty impressive skills to beat out the competition. Which got me thinking...what do I have that makes me different to the rest? Sure, I have the standard list consisting of knowing how to file, the ability to type and use Adobe Photoshop but none of these seemed groundbreaking or in any way interesting.

Some can speak a different language, others can bake - but me? Well, I have a skill that by no means makes me anymore employable but a skill none the less!  I can almost instantly track down any given item of clothing on Instagram and find out where to buy it.

My most recent accomplishments were discovering the fashion brand that every fashion 'it' girl owns at least three dresses and a wrap skirt from. There was also discovering the gingham trench coat that sold out in seconds and only recently it was the gold dainty hoops that Bella Hadid could not stop wearing. 

Although I don't have a job interview where I need to display these skills, I do have yet another case to crack. This time, however, the mystery lies in a distinctive and refreshingly different take on the classic little black dress. 

My latest discovery isn't by a high-end designer that you could only ever dream of owning, but rather a high-street store you've almost definitely already spent your entire paycheck in many times before. Well, prepare to do so again because Topshop has designed the black satin midi dress so perfect, I think I'm dreaming. 

The one in question is €34, but that hasn’t stopped it selling out faster than a One Direction reunion tour. In fact, it sold out once before and has only recently been restocked.

Black Key-Hole Midi-Dress, €34, Topshop

This is the one that's been all over your feed - and it's easy to see why. An irresistible €34 price-tag, a 90s neckline that makes a satin black dress suddenly feel fresh and the ever effortless powers that lies within a midi-length hem. Not to mention those side splits. We're seeing it paired with everything from bejewelled tights and strappy heels to chunky boots and teddy coats. 

It comes in sizes 4 to 18 (all of which are available right now) and because it’s a bargain compared to my usual Instagram finds, you need to shop this immediately if you want to get your hands on it.
