For Christmas, some of my relatives kindly gave me a voucher for New Look. I don’t do much shopping in New Look anymore and generally find there stuff a bit hit and miss for my style, so I gave the voucher to my Mum who was off shopping and told her to surprise me. It’s fair to say she did! At first, I didn’t know what to think about this dress, but now, I love it for many reasons.
1) It’s got yellow in it
2) It’s a great shape for my style
3) It’s yellow… oh, wait- I said that one!
It is a Pussycat London dress and I looked up styling inspiration online shortly after and found that Kelly Brook wore a body-con dress in this fabric by D&G… what?! Loving it a little more now I can maybe try and pass it off as a designer… (just Google onion print dress! The pattern was also featured in Gossip Girl!) So I soon began to realize this wasn’t just a cooky dress I would maybe wear once, but that it could actually work styled in three different ways…
Garden Party Glam
-This is the simplest of the three looks but I really love that. Just paired with a some green heels to bring out the green in the dress and a mustard pashmina, I’d wear this to a garden party or slightly more formal night!
–I wore this up to Edinburgh for a friends birthday party and love the autumnal feel of it (yes, I know, totally wrong time of year for that!) However, as I simply unzipped it and folded down the top part of the dress, it was trickier than usual to make this dress pass as a skirt, but it worked for instant effect!
‘ONIONS HAVE LAYERS. OGRES HAVE LAYERS.’… Shrek? Oh, yes, I went there.
–All dresses can be layered in some way or another I think, and this one pairs great with this burgundy jumper which compliments the pink in the dress.
P.S. Sorry about the poor quality of some of the photos. I’m still working out the self-timer settings on my new camera!
