Parisian Navy Swallow Print Skater Dress
Parisian Stone Bird Print Skater Dress

The skater dress style has always been a must for me! I have an hourglass figure and I think these dresses are really flattering on me... I think they're flattering on all figures actually. 
They're tighter at the waste so they create that curve and the skirt flares out so it can create hips or hide a multitude of sins. It's perfection!
I also love the high neckline. I do have a big chest and hate that every outfit looks trashy because my cleavage is front and central. I love that it looks relaxed and classy at the same time.

I've read some back reviews about New Look but I've never had a problem. It's cheap and cheerful. You just have to know what to look for.
  1. My key buying point is to always invest. I tend to stick to key colours like neutrals or block colours because even if fashion changes... key colours are always in. Navy, black, creams, whites and greys are all sitting proud in my wardrobe.
  2. I NEVER buy materials that are too flimsy or thick. I like to be able to wear my clothes all year round so I don't buy anything too Summery or too big for Winter. I love a dress that I can wear in Summer and then just add tights and a cardigan to for Winter.
  3. DON'T buy products with a thread loose or a stain on. At least NOT for full price. Point it out or leave it on the rack. I don't believe in 'fixing' clothes that should be on sale or made perfectly by the manufacturer anyway.
  4. DO buy pattern but make sure it's a pattern you know you'll love for a long time. Keep the word investment in your head at all times. I LOVE birds and animals so I know I'll always find the shirt or dress cute and me in ten years time. 


  1. A wonderful blog you have here ^^.. meh, i should be making a list of stuff to buy as well c:.. its about time

    xo, L

    1. I can't wait to see what you blog! I added you on Bloglovin' to be nosey! Always looking for new blogs to read!

  2. Those dresses are SO cute! I love that silhouette too, though high necklines have never flattered me. I wish I could pull them off, but can't! I've never heard of New Look! (probably because it's British). But they have my kind of prices :)

    1. I think everything you choose to wear looks amazing so I'll trust that you think they don't suit you, lol. New Look is a very British store, lol... I think they're a little more expensive than Forever 21 but still cheap and cheerful!


Thank you so much for the comment and I promise to reply as soon as possible!
Have a lovely day!
