The model cut a slim silhouette in the stylish dress, which featured a split up the leg and a black belt around the waist, and appeared to pay no mind to the chilly weather by not wearing a coat.
She added to her glam look with a voluminous curly hairstyle and donned a pair of black heels to give her some extra height - not that she needs it with those long pins!
Abbey whizzed up to her hometown this week amid a packed schedule of rehearsals for Strictly Come Dancing, which she is taking part in alongside stars such as Waterloo Road actor Mark Benton and singer Sophie Ellis-Bexter.
And although the mum-of-one may be preoccupied with her current role in the dance competition, she is still committed to promoting her new business venture.
Abbey, 27, is known for being on the ball when it comes to fashion, so it's no surprise that today she has launched a brand new clothing collection for Matalan, designed by herself.
Before cutting the ribbon outside the latest Liverpool store, Abbey eagerly tweeted: "So the day has finally arrived I'm launching my own collection today in the brand new matalan store in Liverpool #superexcited".
We bet her fellow Scousers are excited too!
