Today I am highlighting a gorgeous dress from Kaleidoscope. They challenged me to be able to style it 3 ways. Well, if you have been reading my blog for a while you will know I cannot resist a challenge. I chose the Animal Print Velvet Dress to use as my basis. Animal Print and velvet being key trends this season and I thought it would be easier with my style. The dress is a stretchy velour which drapes around the body elegantly. With its rauching around the tummy which flatters, if you are hiding a wee food baby or if like me its actually where you carry your weight, then this dress is a winner. If that wasn’t enough, to top it off, the sleeves are the right length (below the elbow) to hide any fear of bingo wings making appearance.
My first look is My Go to Work Look and I popped on a Leatherette Pencil skirt from ASOS, here I wish I had worn tights, but just forgot all about them, until I rushed out the door and the icy blast hit them and turned them a rather unattractive shade of blue! I popped on my Carvela Court shoes and my Jaeger Wool Wrap Camel Coat to keep it all very fancy!!
Second Look is My Play Day Look. This look I feel is perfect a Mummy day. I teamed the dress with a warm snugly Red Jumper from HM (last year, Similar) which kept me warm, but also went well with the animal print. I also put on thick black tights and 90’s Buckled, Biker chunky boots from New Look which are perfect for running around the park. For outerwear I teamed it with my All Saints Bales Leather Jacket to finish the look.
Third Look is the final, My Night Out Look which the dress just holds its own. I teamed this with my &other Stories Red Snake effect Sandals and Weekday Clutch Bag which is perfect to size to fit your bits and bobs for a night out. Once again, I whipped out the Jaegar Wool Wrap Camel Coat which I am hammering this season as it goes with EVERYTHING!
I hope you enjoyed my offering on how to get your moneys worth out of a fabulous dress. You don’t just have to wear it for one night wonder, when you put your mind to it you mix textures, colours and prints the possibilities are endless. I would like to say a big Thankyou to Kaleidoscope for commissioning the challenge I really enjoyed it! If you havent taken a look at Kaleidoscope website then I wholeheartly recommend it.
