Style | The Stripe Life

Hi,

I had envisaged taking a long break from blogging as I had begun to feel quite jaded with the whole thing. There is always the thought in the back of my mind, am I good enough, does anyone actually read it? I knew as soon as I started thinking like this it was time to take a break, whether that was 1 day or 1 week, I knew I had to shut the laptop for a while.

The break didn't last for long, I think it's been around 2 weeks since I sat down and wrote anything but one lovely dress got me so excited I had to come back and share it all with you!


I bought this dress a few weeks ago, not online but in store for a change. I always forget that my local New Look has a curves section, it's small but it's there and, as you all know, they are far and few between.



I didn't even try this one on, I just had a good feeling about it when I saw so I took it straight to the tills, along with a denim shirt, neither of which I needed but I could not resist!


I'm wearing a 24 here and I would say it fits true to size. I've worn it a couple of times for work and I'm in love. It's so comfortable, fits well and is very versatile. I might do another post showing the different ways I am going to style it but for now I would highly recommend ordering this dress!
Oh and I don't normally go taking pictures in closed shopping centres, these were taken after an event and it was quiet so I asked Mr C to take a couple of pictures! They are a little grainy but I like that they are completely random and not quite perfect!

Much Love
Natalie
