Dressing room adventures!

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Hello all, how are you? I hope you’re very well! If you’re based in the UK, until 4pm today we have half price next day delivery, so it’ll only cost you £3.49 instead of £6.99. Don’t miss out!

Earlier this week I headed to one of our stores, and tried on a few items I love from the site. I’ve always found it helpful to see clothes on a more ordinary body so I thought I’d do the same thing for you!

I am 5’1, a size 22-24 and a definite pear shape. Here goes!

1st item: Black & White 2in1 Dress, £28. I tried this dress in a 22 and it was a perfect fit! I think it gave me a great silhouette as the bodice is fairly short, so it nips me in and gives me the illusion of a waist. The skirt is a lovely a-line so it skims my belly and bum very nicely! I’m also very impressed with the length of the skirt, it means that even taller women can wear it as a dress with opaque black tights underneath.

2nd item: Mustard Tunic, £14.50. I tried this tunic in a 22-24. It’s such a beautiful, on trend colour for the autumn/winter season and while it looked okay, I believe it’s a much better cut for someone with a curvier, hourglass figure to avoid the snug fit around the belly. Such a great, comfortable look for daytime, and there are many other colours available!

3rd item: Coral Dip Back Scoop Neck Jumper, £17. I tried this on in a 22-24 and I absolutely love it. It is unbelievably soft, it simply has to be felt to be believed! This is just great for keeping warm and toasty in the winter and suits any body shape. I especially like the dip back for a sweet little detail. Great with leggings and boots, or even with a skirt (I’m wearing my own Yours velvet skirt from last year in the photos) and thick, wooly tights.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post! Let me know if you do and I will happily post more! :)
