What's my style?-Paper Dolls
Following on from Tuesday's look inside my wardrobe, I thought that I'd like to show you my new find. The brand is called Paper Dolls. This is most definitely my style! I hate to think that I am getting older, and I know I am far from old, but I do prefer to dress a little more sophisticated nowadays, more so than when I was at university. Ironically, I was quite plump at uni, but it didn't deter me from being very brave and wearing what ever was on trend, even if it didn't suite my figure. I was studying in Liverpool which I think helps as they have a "anything goes" attitude. Anyway, these days I am a early thirties, career mummy:-) I love shops like Mango, Reiss and Topshop. I can generally always find something in one of these shops. A while ago I was introduced to a brand called Little Mistress, which I fell in live with. Very girly, feminine, pretty dresses. Some of the styles were perhaps a bit young for me, so I was delighted when I was told that they had brought out the brand Paper Dolls, which staying with the feminine style, but with a more sophisticated edge. All the dresses are bodycon style, they all seem to cling to the right parts of your body, making them super flattering. I am pear shaped, small boobs, reasonably small waist with ample hips and bum, these dresses are great for my shape. They accentuate the hour glass shape perfectly. Most of the dresses are quite stretchy, making them fit your every curve.
Another thing I love about this range is that the dresses are a great length. I am 5ft 4inch, so quite an average height. I really struggle finding the a good length, they are either below the knee, looking quite frumpy or they are far too short, making me feel self conscious and high lighting my chubby tights! These dresses nip in at the knee, giving just the right length.
Here are two of my most well worn PaperDolls dresses:
|Cap sleeve lace panel dress|
|Folded bodycon dress|
I wore this dress on a recent night out around Liverpool. I felt sexy, but knew that I was showing too much. It comes with a cute, gold skinny belt which I seem to have lost! It falls off the shoulder slightly, crossing over the chest which adds a bit of an usual detail. Again, the snug material hold everything in, a bit like Spanx but in a dress.
Here are a few styles I adore:
|Bodycon mesh dress|
|Half peplum asymmetric dress|
|Same as above, but in plum with black lace|
