Floral dress

new dress!

Another floral dress! I actually counted up how many I have now and it amounts to 8. However, I have no floral skirts whatsoever which is quite odd. But I have a huge amount of polka dot skirts. Also, I only ever buy stripes on t-shirts. This makes for quite an uncoordinated wardrobe and I am not brave enough to mix patterns.

The dress is from New Look, which actually has a rather nice selection these days, despite it's slightly chavvy image. They're also doing 20% student discount at the moment which was a nice surprise, making this dress only £20. It was certainly worth getting into an argument with a woman over queueing over!

I wore it with this new necklace from Topshop that says I love tea on it. I can't stop pretending to sip it and stir it. Why are things so much nicer in miniature?

  5. EVERYTHING is better in miniature! You can pretend to be a giant, you see. Such fun.

    I have zero polka dot skirts and zero floral skirts. In fact, I think I have about 3 skirts in total! Dresses are much more my thing. I love yours.

  10. I agree! Miniature things just makes my heart beat faster at the sight of them! Well, I guess a girl can't have too many floral dresses:)

    You should try mix-matching your patterns, you may learn to like it!

    I always bypass New Look because, like you said, it has a bit of a chavvy image, but your dress is lovely and suits you well. I might have to go and take a look, especially with 20% discount!

  23. I seriously need to get me that tea necklace - too cute!

    Many moons ago I used to work for New Look and we had 50% discount. Unsurprisingly, 50% of my wages ended up being spent there anyway.

  24. Your dress is adorable! :)

    I'm very specific about buying prints as well, so none of my tops ever end up matching with my tops! I've tried mixing prints a few times, but I'm usually not that brave. The best advice for mixing, though, is to match one of the colors in both prints. :)

  28. Good thing you can never have too many floral dresses!

    You really should give print-mixing a try! I don't do it nearly enough, but when I do I feel pretty dang cool.

  31. New Look has been brilliant lately! I just got their Luella rip-off dress - cute and black with a heart shaped back. It's so flattering. I have to say though, I've always found their dresses to be really good - they embrace waists and full skirts, which a lot of shops don't do. Lately, I'm falling over their workwear - some lovely floral blouses and cardigans that I need.

    I haven't seen that dress in mine though and I'm going to have to hunt it out - it's lovely. Plus all the lush floral dresses in dp... I think I've spent my next paycheque before it even arrives!

    I've seen the 20% off signs, it makes me miss having an NUS card, sigh!
