Today's post is all about a great campaign I have been lucky enough to join in with New Look. If you asked me what my favourite clothes shop is; my answer will always be New Look - everything is bang on trend without being too 'out there' for my liking and it won't break the bank either. I was recently in touch with the lovely Tasha who told me all about New Look's 'Throwback Dress campaign.' The purpose of the 'Throwback Dress' campaign is to show you a dress that I have always loved and will be a firm favourite in my wardrobe. We all have that one particular dress in our wardrobes that we keep and go back to time and time again (sometimes in the hope that it still fits us, right?!) . To tell you a little information on why I love my throwback dress so much, I'm going to have to go soppy on you. It's a simple black and white (monochrome to the fashion lovers) dress, with its detailed lace skirt which once had a pretty cream flower attached to the top (now misplaced) and is, surprise surprise, originally from New Look too! I wore this dress three years ago on a night out where I met my boyfriend. It may not sound anything special to you, but the dress does actually hold a lot of memories for me as I remember the night we met and the next three years and more that have followed!
My future 'Throwback Dress' that I chose out from New Look's dresses section is this (top photo) absolutely beautiful 'Peach Bandeau Contrast Lace Maxi Dress' which I am love with. Please note I received part payment towards this dress for the nature of this post. I am going to a special wedding in September, so when I had the chance to search for a new throwback dress, I was over the moon and spent ages scouring through all the different dresses - it's a hard life right? I finally came to the conclusion of this absolutely beautiful peach maxi dress and after a slight kerfuffle of having to return and get a smaller size - damn my flat chested-ness - it's now firmly tucked away safely in my wardrobe and it won't be showing itself until September! As you can see, the dress itself nips in at the waist and has a flowy maxi skirt with a slight slit in the left hand side. My favourite part of the dress is the colour - it's such a gorgeous shade of coral and I also love the black floral lace pattern. I'm really happy with my new dress and all I have to do now is to wait until the day comes where I can feel like a princess in it! Before I go - please excuse my photography skills!
What's your throwback dress? x
