New Look Shoes & The Telephone Dress

I was in M&S today to pick up my Telephone dress – the one I told you about yesterday. But while I was there, I nipped into the nearby New Look…check out these gorgeous studded pumps!

I also tried on these flat black ankle boots – really comfy. The pic was a bit dark so I had to enhance to show them properly..

These wedge trainers were lovely too and very comfy. Jury’s still out on them though…couldn’t bring myself to take a picture!

Looking back on the photos now I’m home, I have a feeling I will be back for the slipper shoes next month but this month’s limit was up after paying for the M&S dress & a cute blush coloured sweatshirt that called to me from the New Look sale rail (blog to follow on this)

What about the dress then? I didn’t have a photographer so more mirror shots follow..

The fit is gorgeous I have to say – the nipped in waist is a great shape on me but then again, I’m not that big on top. I think you would have to size up if you have generous norkage and then it’s probable you would lose the benefit of the waist shape? Please let me know how you get on size wise if you try it also.
I tried it over jeans in these pictures (a bit too long on me as a tunic) and then I tried it with navy tights but I didn’t have the right shoes for the latter look. So I’ll save it for another blogpost when I’ve found said shoes! Any excuse for some shoe shopping eh?


And before I go today, be sure to drop by the Britmums Blog for my February Style Round Up. I’m featuring some of my favourite curvy blogs this month. I do hope you enjoy!

    If my husband saw the studded flats he would say “they are very you” and they are but I have to find a dress for a 40th party Saturday night now that I am still around – gutted. I love the look of the blush top, the boots and the wedge trainders, I might have to pop into my local new look! What a great word “norkage” is, by the sounds of it I’d have no hope of getting my boobs in that frock but it is very cute and looks fab on you doll x Will pop off to your style round-up now xx

    Those ankle boots are great – New Look is another destination I need to get to while I’m here – When I was in my early 20s I had the best black suede mini skirt from there that I wore to death.

    If the dress is the same cut as the owl dress then being blessed of bust I can confirm definitely go up a size. It fits beautifully, I’m also fairly nipped in of waist and find that although it sits a little high if I wear a belt I don’t lose my waist.

    The telephone dress is gorgeous. I do not need it. I do not need it…

  11. The shape of the dress is perfect on you… do you have any ankle boots that would work with tights – eg tan?

    Oh wow I love the pumps! Right up my street! I had some from Topshop last year but in white and probably twice the price! Will check these out, thanks!!

  24. Fabulous fit – no wonder you have such a big grin – it suits you to a tee. And would love to see you give the wedge trainers another go – there is a pair for you out there somewhere!

    The telephone dress looks stunning on you. That is something I would probably not give a second glance to but seeing how well you wear it is making me rethink how I shop ~ badly!

    Just got my telephone dress too thanks to your blog! fits like a dream on me too, the waistband is just right and I am small up top so it’s perfect. I am going to try it with a pair of red heeled brogues I have … Delighted to have discovered your blog, keep up the excellent recommendations!
