Take 10 Challenge 3: Peacocks Dress

Time for another Take 10 challenge. This time, the kind people at Peacock's offered to send us a dress from the Pearl Lowe Collection at Peacocks. This is actually my first item from Peacocks, despite them actually being a really affordable store.

This dress is something I probably would have never picked up and was definitely the hardest Take10 Challenge I've had to do so far. The dress was quite baggy and long, and I'm used my dresses being fitted and short, so I enjoyed styling something different.

I undid the buttons at the top, to lower the neckline, as well as undoing the buttons on the long sleeves, so I could roll them up, above my elbows.
I then tied a silk belt around my waist, to give the dress more shape, and rolled the dress a bit above the belt to make it shorter. I finally paired it with cowboy boots.

Here's how all the Take 10 girls styled the dress.

 Sadly, Leia had to leave Take10 as she moved to Bangladesh, but we have a wonderful new addition in Nic, from Vint Junky.

You can follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook for the latest news and updates about our next challenge.

Once again, here are all the participants:

Jen from A Little Bird Told Me
MJ from Dreaming Spires & Old Car Tyres
Sherin from HiFashion
Vicki from Magpie Girl
Adele from Molto Curiosa
Saskia from Not Just Medical
Shini from Park & Cube
Sabine from Psynopsis
Nic from Vint Junky
Sarah from We Shop Therefore We Are

I really like how you've shortened the length using the belt - you look fab! xx

Beautiful dress and color!




Sami said...

I like the colour... it really suits you! But I'm not a fan of the length either... I think only a super-tall girl could pull it off x

vint junky said...

It looks great on Sherin, the colour is perfect!
I'm more of a short skirt girl too, but i love it shortened with the belt

What a gorgeous color. Love seeing all the different style perspectives!

Haute World said...

Love the way you styled this - cinching the waist and shortening the length was a good call!

maddie said...

You know that feeling when it's time for your favourite magazine to hit the shelves? Well, I've started to get that about Project Take 10! I LOVE seeing the outfits each month.

This one is really great, the colour has suited everyone so much, and as you're all so different, that's no easy task.
I've never shopped at Peacocks before, so once again you guys have opened my eyes!

Love how you've altered the dress to your own requirements, and you look amazing, hon!

I actually like this a lot. It's definitely one of my favourite of your take 10s. The colour looks great on you, and though I wouldn't have thought it was my style either I'm definitely reconsidering!

Clare said...

That dress is amazing on you. It is perfect for your color.

Love the colour of the dress, you're all doing a fab job of this Take 10 project :)

I used to get quite a few clothes from Peacocks whilst at Uni, spesh accessories. Very affordable! Think i might have to have a look at Pearl Lowes new stuff.

Love it with the belt - nice touch. and the colour looks fabulous on you!

Winnie said...

I like the way you styled it too. I would totally have to belt up the dress too since it looks super long!

Tasha said...

I know this dress is a bit different from what you normally wear but you look great Sherin! That color looks lovely on you!
