The Shoe Girl Styles It: Wallis Poppy Dress
Yes, you read that title correctly, I'm styling a dress today rather than shoes. Not just one either, but three looks for you. I'm hoping to make up for lost time, though more importantly, Wallis are running a special offer, for today only, where you can buy this floral dress for just £20. That's half price! So I thought it might be a good idea to style three different looks around the colours available, instead of my usual way of styling the shoes first. I tried to choose three somewhat different styles to show the versatility of the dress.
So we'll start with the Petite pink poppy fit and flare dress £20 (usual price £40). I went for a really fun look with this one, starting with these awesome flat gladiator sandals (actually named 'glamiator'), which are knee-high and heavily covered in studs. I added this brightly coloured hairband and adorable straw cat clutch (totally want this). I think this might be my favourite look, as I love the individual items as well as the whole ensemble.
New Look 'Glamiator' sandals £44.99, Topshop tropical floral headband £20 and happy cat straw bag £20.
Then for the ink poppy fit and flare dress £20, I opted for a pin-up look. Starting with these lovely Miss L Fire wedges, adding gorgeous sunnies, a kitsch Moschino 'cola' can bag and a bright red pout courtesy of Topshop. This is glam, retro and playful all rolled into one!
Miss L Fire 'Rhonda' sandals £96.47, Miss Selfridge cut out cat eye sunglasses £10, Moschino cola can shoulder bag £295 and Topshop Lips in Screen Siren £8.
Finally the orange poppy fit and flare dress £20, is a little outside my usual style, but I like I say, I wanted to show it was versatile. So I went for a boho, festival type look, adding this denim jacket, straw hat and fringed bag. The laser cut ankle boots are by ASOS and I love how they change the feel of the dress from formal to casual.
Worn with: ASOS 'Enticing' laser cut boots £48, Miss Selfridge Petite denim jacket £39, BooHoo structured fedora straw hat £10 and Topshop suede tassel hobo bag £65.
Remember you have until midnight to buy your half price dress. Which is your favourite look?
