One thing I love about buying clothes is my mini fashion shows for my boyfriend as he is so honest about the clothes that I try on in a way which makes me feel good about myself. He’s also got pretty awesome style himself and when we go out shopping together he suggests items that I’d never think of picking up for myself yet 90% of the time they look great.
So one evening when we were laying bed scrolling through the internet I happened to pop onto the Missguided site and some items caught Luke’s eye. I left control of my phone in his hands as he liked a whole load of items most of which were dresses and shirts, two areas I severely lacked in. I did vito all the items and to be honest pretty much everything he picked out and liked were things that I loved the look of so they stayed.
As most of you who shop on Missguided know they always have different sales on all the time so I kept popping back on and a few weeks back there were four items all down to half price so they just happened to fall into my basket. Usually when I place online orders I tend to return at least one or two items but for the first time I kept all of the things that I ordered.
The first thing was a Blue Mini Tshirt Dress (£28) which is an incredibly comfortable fit which will be perfect for travelling and it’s a colour which I wouldn’t usually pick but I absolutely love it.
Next up was a Black Polka Dot Frill Tea Dress (£20) which is a fit I wouldn’t usually have gone for but with the right underwear it looks great on. I absolutely love the sleeves as they sit just below the elbow and have a beautiful frill on the end. It’s the perfect length to be able to wear with both tights and leggings and shows the right amount of clevage to be slightly dressy without being too much so.
Next up was a black floral print skater dress (£25) which isn’t really a skater dress as I know them but it has the most incredible sleeves and is the perfect length. It’s a little more of a late Spring/ Summer dress due to the sheer style but it also isn’t super thin.
The final thing I picked up was a grey washed shirt dress (£25 – Now £10). I had actually bought this a month or so before but in a size which didn’t fit but this one was perfect. It has a silky lining which means it does come out about a size smaller than normal but it’s the perfect length to wear as a dress and beautiful flared sleeves.
