Girly and Frilly

Something that has caught my eye lately are all the pretty, cream coloured dresses in the shops and I’ve come to realise that it’s just one of those shades that I don’t wear very much. I’m quick to admit that I like my girly attire but there is still something that niggles away telling me that can be a bit too girly and frilly. Then again, leather jackets would toughen up any overtly sweet and girly dress!

The Miss Selfridge frill dress is really lovely and seems to be on all the mannequins in their stores at the moment. It has what I would refer to as having, a vintage inspired collar, I’m thinking forties inspired? The other dress is from a store, I rarely buy anything from these days, but I actually prefer the Dorothy Perkins Frill Dress compared to the Miss Selfridge one. It’s a WHOLE pound cheaper too, which makes all the difference when you’re a student!

However, my real favourite find was the Sestra Moja Tunic over at ASOS. Now I own a lot of belts and this one would look awesome belted. ASOS also has the option of viewing it on a catwalk and that definitely helped! In fact, more online stores should opt for this video view of the clothes!

I found all these cream dresses through Style Compare. The site represents 35 retailers and has about 70,000 items on site! Crazzy. If you thought you could spend all day on ASOS…well imagine a site that combines ASOS, Topshop and a whole bunch of your favourite high street brands? Yes, bad news for your bank account, your dissertation and that exploding wardrobe of yours.
