dress - french connections courtesy shopstyle, scarf - liberty for tk maxx, shoes - schuh
Alas the time has come to think transitional dressing. When given the opportunity to try out ShopStyle and pick something out, my first thought was for something I could wear now while the sun shines, but would also work for autumn and winter as they roll around. This dress fits the bill perfectly - it's an easy soft summer dress from French Connection, but the jersey fabric and breton stripes means I can see myself adding a jacket and black opaques as soon as it gets chilly.
ShopStyle is basically a website which brings together pretty much every online fashion website all in one place so you can search everything at once. I am the sort of person who gets really overwhelmed by too much choice, but I'm also the sort of person who is super picky about what I like, and in that way the website is just perfect. I wish I had known about it when I was buying my bridesmaid's dress for my friend Kate's wedding, as I spent so long searching for a green dress, and shop style would have shown me every green dress on the internet in one place so quickly!
I also found is helpful as when I zeroed in on this dress, I discovered it was out of stock on the first website I clicked through to. Not an issue though, as by searching for the name of the dress shopstyle brought up every department store that was also selling the same dress, so I could find one with my size.
