This dress is my ‘Throwback Dress’. I bought it back in 2012 and still wear it regularly now, at the time I bought it because it is incredibly flattering and the bird print was a big thing for me to go for as it was very different to the all black, baggy t-shirts that used to dominate my wardrobe.
Another, more sentimental reason that I love this dress is that I bought it at a point in my life where I was finally feeling really good about myself, having lost about 3 stone (which I have more or less maintained). Even now, when I feel a bit rubbish in myself, or am having a fat day, I automatically throw on this dress and feel a lot better about my outfit.
The lovely team at New Look gave me the opportunity to get a new throwback dress from their new collection. I went with this lovely black and white dress. I chose it because, I love the monotone look at the moment and think that it is a timeless look. The dress itself can be worn both for work, with tights and a conservative shoe to give off a professional vibe, or for play with a leather jacket and heeled boots. I think the cut flatters me well and I don’t feel conscious about my arms in it either!
