So it's been a few weeks since my last post & I've been thinking about starting to include fashion & lifestyle in my blog. I think I mentioned about maybe doing some fashion posts a while back & I thought why the heck not?! As I love fashion!! Also I want to start writing about a few personal struggles I've faced over the last few years with mental health. I don't usually talk about my personal struggles but over the past few months I have been struggling a little and I thought you know what? I'm going to start and blog about how I'm feeling and the techniques I use to deal with my day to day anxiety. I'll write more about this as soon as I get the confidence to open up about things. But, anyway back to FASHION!!
So.. My first fashion post is all about something that I think is really on trend at the moment, I've seen loads of girls wearing these and I've been wanting to try one out for myself for a while and see if I suit them and it's the Shirt Dress. Now I love these dresses I think you can dress them down and wear them casual or you can dress them up and look really glam. So my two friends have both worn them with the over the knee boots that are also really on trend at the moment too & they both looked stunning in them. So the other day I went shopping and popped in to my little old faithful Primark! And I went and had a look at the selection of shirt dresses. I came across this gorgeous like deep maroon & cream striped one, with a pull in waist detail that you tie together to give it a nice shape. So I had a little think and I thought you know what I'm gonna try one. Now me being me, I am very picky when it comes to my fashion taste and style. I love anything that's on trend but I have to put my own stamp on it. So the dress was £13 which I thought was amazing and I also thought well if I don't like it I can always bring it back. Then I had one problem.. What shoes could I wear with it?! Now all these other girls wear the over the knee boots with shirt dresses but little old me who's only 5"3 in height, couldn't really carry off that look in my opinion. So I thought maybe some ankle boots would be better for me so I went to the shoe section and it must have been my lucky day as I came across these gorgeous plain black suede ankle boots with a block heel and wait for it.. They were on sale for just £5!! Bargain or what!!? So I purchased the boots too and I couldn't wait to try them both on and wear them. So I came home and tried them on and I can honestly say I'm so glad I purchased them both. I am a tad obsessed with my shirt dress and I definitely want to purchase a few more in different colours and designs. I've had so many compliments on it too. I'm a curvy size 12 and I really think the pull in waste detail really compliments my curves. I also love the dark maroon colour against my jet black hair I really think they compliment each other. As for the boots they are SO COMFY!! And will basically go with anything. Here's a photo of me wearing the dress and boots...
How gorgeous are they?! (I know you can't really see the boots cause of the lighting) but this dress is definitely one of my new favourite fashion pieces hanging in my wardrobe!! So if you're looking at purchasing a shirt dress then I recommend having a look in primark. The quality of this dress is just gorgeous and for that price you really can't go wrong.
That's all for now guys..
Talk soon! Mwah!! xxx
