Mehndi - A gift from a pupil's mum
Recently I was contacted by Boohoo to see if I would be interested in taking part in one of their campaigns. I was going to be sent a dress, having only the choice of black or white and of course my size, to see how I style it. Initially I almost said no as I thought I didn't want someone to choose something for me in case I didn't like it. As it was more a of a styling challenge my curiosity got the better of me and I said yes.
The dress arrived and I thought it was very pretty but in terms of the style, I thought it was a little too boho for me. I tried it on and initially styled it with bangles and a sandals but I didn't feel like me at all. I whipped out some socks for my sandals and a furry bag to add my own taste.
I found that the dress was an odd length on me, if I shortened the straps the tighter band in the middle sat just on my hips which didn't look right. So I lengthened the straps and the tighter band sat just below my hips and in the end I had to add a skinny belt to pull it in a little. I think you can see from the images that the dress doesn't suit my style or my figure that much. I'm not sure I could wear this again but I did enjoy the challenge of trying to style this.
This dress would be perfect on someone with a bigger chest than me so that it sits better, probably on someone a little shorter than me. And someone who loves the boho style for summer. The same dress has been sent to other bloggers so I'm looking forward to seeing how it was styled by those with a different shape to me.
How do you think you would wear this dress?
