Dress A Blogger - Part One
When I was a child my favourite Christmas Stocking filler was one of those books which contained a cardboard cut-out of a girl and different paper clothes with tabs that you could fold over around the model to create different looks.
This week I felt a bit like one of those cardboard models after Kate at Make Do Style designed this seasonal outfit for me.
Sadly I couldn't cu tout the outfit and attach it to myself but I wanted to do my best to recreate it.
I already had navy tights, a cream Monsoon shrug and a heart necklace so I thought I'd order the dress and shoes to see how they looked.
Unfortunately the only time I had spare this week to try this all on was at the end of a very busy day when the light was bad so I apologise for the quality of the picture.
I was presently surprised with the way the dress looked on me.
I would never have chosen it and I had fun trying different belts.
Sadly, (although I am a great fan of Clarks) the shoes didn't fit my feet well and felt strange when I walked.
I have taken the dress and shoes back but I did like the challenge of dressing up in clothes I would not have chosen.
