A little while ago I blogged about the tiny wonder that is this dress
. It’s a Muji shrinkwrap dress, which came in the cutest little cube ever (see :here:
for the original post). I was so impressed at how something so tightly packed could make itself into a pretty versatile garment and for the pretty bargainous price of £12.95! I guess Muji are pretty well known for their innovative approach with an affordable price though, huh? I mentioned in the initial post I was going to do another one showing different ways to ‘style’ the dress. I use the word style pretty loosely though. I’m not styling as such, just throwing stuff over it and finding what’s comfortable. Anyway, here’s how I’ve been wearing my new wardrobe staple:
I think the easiest thing to wear this dress with is a cropped-ish jumper. With regular hip length jumpers they don’t quite sit right on my pear shaped bod. This mesh style jumper I bought from Forever 21 in the sale a few weeks ago. It goes with just about everything I own and was the best £7 I ever spent! As you can see, my barratts boots are making yet another appearance, I seriously can’t get them off my feet, this outfit is the epitome of comfort for me haha.
As the dress isn’t too clingy (which is one thing I was worried about when I bought it, my ass attracts clingy fabric) you can make it look a bit shorter by wearing a belt with it and pulling the top bit of the dress over it sightly. This is good for days when I feel a little too bloated in it as the fabric hangs better over my food baby belly. The cardigan I’m wearing was £5 from an unbranded shop. It’s so so cosy! The hat I got the other day from H&M’s kids section for £4.99, I preferred it to the adults ones as it’s fleece lined inside so makes for extra warmth, if you hadn’t guessed yet, I liked being toasty.
And finally, when I got this dress (when the weather was quite warm, remember that day?) I wore it constantly with this little cape T Shirt from H&M. I think it cost £7 in the sale and I was after one for ages! Although I don’t really know what else I can wear it with, the colour is a bit of a murky grey and doesn’t go with much else.
Overall I’ve gone for muted greys and quite boring colours really. But given the design/print/style of the dress you could probably accessorise it with some bolder colours for a bit more of an exciting look?! I dunno. Also, if you like my boots, don’t forget to enter my Barratt’s competition. I’m loving all the blog post entries so far and the final 3 get featured on my blog for a week whilst readers decide the winner! What’ve you got to lose?!
