Tartan Plaid Stripped Shift Dress


Hello Beauties!
 I wanted to do something a tad different in this blog post. The other week I picked up a fabulous little canon bridge camera from my works. It was a bloody bargain as my haggling skills got it down from £249.00 to £93.00!!! The perks of working in retail huh?
So with my nifty little camera me and Danny decided to take a walk on a sunny Sunday and take some snaps of yours truly in my cute tartan dress that I got from Karma Clothing this week.

I love that tartan has been so in trend lately. I've always liked the pattern and now that its out more I have more choice out of what I'd like to have in it. My eyes nearly popped out my head when I caught sight of the tartan primark dresses everyone was wearing. Alas they have always been out of stock when I've gone to purchase one.

Last week I ordered the dress below off a website I have known and admired for ageeees.
They always have exactly what I like in stock and recently added a whole bunch of tartan clothing which made me instantly go ahead and order. 








 


When I'm looking for a new dress to wear I usually end up spending around £20-40 but this was only £15.00! I could buy two or three off their website for what I usually spend!
Its exactly what I wanted with the added collar to it. I love that I'll be able to style it up for a night out or dress it down for a casual day out. 

If you want to take a look at Karma Clothing then you can click the link above to view the dress I'm wearing or if you want to go to their home page click below


Hope you enjoyed this post. In no way shape or form do I think I'm a model. Nor does Danny think he's a photographer. It was just for fun :)

Are you into the tartan trend? What pieces of clothing do you own in style with this trend?

  23. You look gorgeous, I love the dress :) I really love the tartan trend but haven't incorporated it into my wardrobe yet, I always get a bit scared of red as I'm not sure if it suits me! Just found your blog and I'm loving it :)

    1. That's such a nice thing to say. Made me smile! Thank you.

      I think tartan is an easy look to pull off. You should give it a go.. even if its something as small as a scarf. X

  25. I love your unique style! & to be honest, I'm not a big tartan fan, but you definitely win best dressed in this category (out of all the plaid/tartan looks I've seen this season)! The fit of your dress is perfect & I love the detail of the collar & necklace! Well styled!

    1. oh wow that's such a nice compliment! Thank you so much :)

      Glad I could pull this off because as I mentioned above in the comments I wasn't sure it would look ok on me (especially with the bright red hair, I thought it'd clash). But I love it and i'm going to get good use out of it in the future I think :)
