Style | All the stripes
As much as I love shopping online sometimes it's nice to go into the store and be able to try on clothes. I'm happy that a town not far from us still has a New Look inspire section in the store, it's small but its there.
I tried on a pinafore dress that I had seen online, I put it in the basket and then forgot about it. It looked really nice online but after trying it on I changed my mind completely, the material felt cheap, scratchy and there was already a hole in the pocket of the one I tried on. The fit wasn't particularly great either, it's a real shame as I really want a pinafore dress, if you have any recommendations please let me know!
Oddly enough I tried on a dress that I had looked at online and instantly dismissed it as 'not very me'! It's nothing really ground breaking but for me it's a colour that I don't have in my wardrobe and it's stripey!
I really like the dress despite a little pulling over the bust but than can be solved by opening up a few more buttons and putting a vest top underneath. I'm also going to take the belt off, I find that these material belts never sit properly and always end up hanging down by my knees!
