New Look Blogger Competition!


"You Better Shape Up...For The Party Season" - So New Look currently have a competition going on where bloggers pick a dress and style it for party inspiration. The catch is that it has to be a dress which you think would suit your body shape! They've given 5 different types pear shaped, straight up & down, apple, plus-sized and hour glass. Personally I find my body shape quite weird as i'm quite big on my upper half even though weirdly it doesn't show! And i'm not small on my bottom but i'm not big either. So I would say i'm like an in between pear shaped and hour glass but mainly i'm going to go with hour glass :) So working with this i've always seemed to notice that skater styled dresses and skirts really flatter my figure. So when searching through all their dress this skater stood out. I love the colour and the fact that it was velvet just sold me further. I'm currently very very veeeerrry obsessed with velvet :) I seem to find skater dresses flattering as they do my top half justice as well hide the little growing belly that I have and to add it shows of my little waist. I'm sure you guys have also noticed i'm very stud obsessed so i went with these heels and clutch as they go perfectly together and black goes with everything so thought it would cute with the dress. I love statement jewellery so i was going to go with a statement necklace as the dress is quite plain however when I saw the cuff I thought putting one on each arm would party it up! So i went with a simple long cross necklace and little studs. Personally I think a nice little head chain would look so cute with the look but sadly New Look didn't have any online!

What do you guys think of my choice?
