New Look Peplum Dress
Advantages: fits nicely to body shapes, middle part hides lumps/bumps
This weekend just gone it has been my birthday and I had planned a birthday party because it was my big 21st and I don't usually do anything for it. My usual fashion style is gothic/punk/alternate styling and everything I had I just didn't seem to want to wear so a month before the party I started buying some dresses that wasn't like me so I could see how it looked on me and eventually wear one for the party. I bought this peplum dress from New Look for just £9.99.
I usually shop in places like Topshop so for me to find a dress that is nice, girly, stands out and is unlike me in every way for just a tenner I was pretty chuffed. The dress stood out for me personally because of the vibrant colour, I usually don't wear any colour in my clothes because of my pale complexion but this is a bright blue dress and I did want a bit of a change, something that would make difference for my birthday.
This dress made out of 95% Polyester, 5% Elastane. This makes the dress a clingy one which did make me worried about those little lumps and bumps, I usually wear dresses that come in at the waist and then flow out but this clings to the full body shape which by the time I was all dressed up I loved. I'm quite small so this came just above my knees which I did roll up by a couple of inches so I didn't look silly, after I had done that I was pleased that it was now a nice length on me. I was worried about those lumps and bumps but the frilly part around the waist nicely covers all those bits!
To make the most of this dress I teamed it with suspender tights, night ribboned wedges, some black bracelets, a leather jacket and my clutch bag making the dress stand out loads. I was very drunk that night and the dress was extremely comfortable and light to wear, it didn't make me slip out anywhere and it didn't roll down, the outfit was a complete success and I was really pleased I had bought it.
This is still in stock online and in store and is available in sizes 6 - 18. This is also available in several shades from blue, pink, black and green.
Summary: a lovely budget dress for a great night out
