DRESS: BAND OF GYPSIES VIA TK MAXX, SANDALS: CLARKS, SUNGLASSES: NEXT, EARRINGS: THRIFTED
TK Maxx has this funny way of making me fall in love with items instantly. Perhaps it's the sheer scale of choice in the shop, but I feel I know when an item is right for me from the moment I see it in on the hanger. It might just be because I treat the shop almost like I'm thrifting. I simply do not have the time to consider whether I could find something better elsewhere, because in TK Maxx, when it's gone, it's really gone. It's recently also become a safe haven for finding new brands. This dress is from Band of Gypsies. The brand is typically sold as part of concessions at Asos, TOPSHOP, Nordstorm and Urban Outfitters. This particular dress is still available through Urban Outfitters here.
It was the print which first I fell in love with. I just love traditional Paisley print, especially when it's in such organic colours (they seem to try and turn everything bright pink these days!) I soon fell in love with the detailing. The detail of the mustard on the bodice is absolutely precious. I'm also always a fan of a sweethearts neckline- the most flattering neckline if you ask me. I also find the flare detail of the skirt a lot more flattering than the plethora of skater skirts in stores these days. It's only slight, but it's the little things which count.
