A while back, One Stop Plus contacted a group of bloggers and said - we supply the clothes, you supply the looks and then let's play fashion in our epic Summer Style Trials! So... here's my look:
We're talking bare knees (it IS Summer after all), denim dress, black petticoat (saucy), crochet cardigan and a flash of red. Almost everything I'm wearing is by the brand Ellos which is sold through One Stop Plus.
So, my choices...
The denim dress. I've wanted a denim dress for years. When I was in my early 20s, I went to a Beach Resort with some girl friends and I was the only one who didn't own a denim dress... Obviously, it was no big deal to the girls I went away with - but for me, it was weird and when we all went out "dressed the same and ready to dance" (as you do on adventurous, youthful, girlie holidays) they all wore their Denim Dresses and I wore a jean-skirt and t-shirt. I felt awkward... I wanted a denim dress and if I'm honest would often covet them - but never took the plunge - so for me, for my Summer Style Trial - I went with the one Summer Item, I've wanted for years!
Also from One Stop Plus is my crochet cardigan, saucy black petticoat and flashy red belt. Sizing on the dress sees me wearing a 20/22 which was a little tight in the bust - but after initially trying the 24/26 and finding it quite big on my frame (dual sizing! ARGH!), this was a much nicer look. I LOVE this outfit actually and will wear it a lot. With the Petticoat, it also adds a layer of warmth in our cool UK Summer. My boots are knee high and my knees are pale and chubby.
This look is so fab, that I actually make this Aston Martin look hotter...
