Something a bit different...

One thing that I've loved about fashion blogging is that it's gven me confidence to wear things that I never thought I'd wear. The following look is something that isn't really my style, but as it was so different from what I'm usually in, I had to wear it.

IAren't the print and style so lovely? It was kindly sent over by Matalan before the Christmas and I've only just gotten round to wearing it.
I wore it out shopping and was in two minds about it when I first put it one, then my mum said it looked great. So I tied my hair, put on my make up and really liked the look. I also like how it makes me look a lot taller (I am in heels though). It's the sleeves that I really love though.

Matalan also sent across their SS11 Lookbook, which is quite impressive. It looks like they've really up-ped their game for the upcoming season. As I write this, it is freezing, dark and really wet outside, so here are some summery images from their lookbook to keep you going till we get some Spring-esque weather.

I am definitely craving all the florals and light patterns. And I'm really excited to go and get some of these looks: I've circled my favourites in the lookbook, not to mention I wont be breaking the bank as Matalan is really affordable as well.

What do you think of the dress? Would you wear it?

That dress is lovely and those sleeves are incredible! When I lived in Derby we had a Matalan which I didn't often frequent because it smelt funny but now I'm back home and there isn't one locally I kind of regret not going into the old one more because it really does do some great stuff!

Anyway, you look fantastic so I'm glad you finally decided to wear the dress =)

This dress looks amazing on you, I love it! I have never been to Matalan but I love the dress in the second lookbook picture.

Milana said...

I love the outfits from their look book! That dress you're wearing is not my style either, but your rocking it! And for summer, you could cut those sleeves off and wear a belt and have a great summer maxi dress!

The blog world brings us heaps of surprises. We end up having inspiration by other people and it's great.
I love you in floral dress.
Keep wearing different pieces, it was a great style.

This is definitely a great look for you.

I'm not sure whether I could pull it off - surely not that pattern and colour!

You actually do look taller!! The dress is so pretty i love the sleeves- you don't get many maxi's with sleeves. I didnt know matalan had such great stuff.

ScienceGeek said...

Beautiful dress.
I really do love the matalan ss11 collection. I like the 'nautical' striped dress with the floral cardigan, not something you would typically pair but it actually looks really nice :)

I think it looks stunning on you! I am seeing that look a lot lately on my fav shopping websites and I love it - reminds me of vacationing somewhere warm & tropical (-:

Cafe Fashionista said...

While I wouldn't wear the dress myself, I can't tell you enough how stunning it looks on you, Sherin. You seriously look like a princess.

And the Matalan lookbook is utter perfection - I want everything pictured!! :)

Haute World said...

You look lovely in that dress and I agree that the sleeves are one of the best features. It's probably a little too much print for me to wear, but it really suits you!

Winnie said...

Bianca said...

Hey Sherin, hope you remember me. I'm back to blogging now, here - http://www.tashastreasuretrove.blogspot.com I love the dress and I really love the bottom look, with the coat and the striped top. I don't normally shop in Matalan, but their looks for the spring look great, so I'll definitely be checking them out. xxx

That is an absolute DREAM dress! The sleeves! SO gorgeous!

daisymay aka Chantele said...

That dress looks beautiful on you. I am so in love with the dress in the second lookbook shot though. I saw it in their press area last week and just couldnt believe how perfect and cute it was. So my style, maybe they will decide to send it to me, one can dream eh?? lol.
