Take 10 Challenge 18: House of Fraser Dress

I had so much fun with this month's Take 10 Challenge. It was sponsored by House of Fraser, and personally, I believe that it was great PR-ing on their part, as well as something a bit different. The in-house PR team had a look through each of our blogs, then sent us what they thought we'd like. It was impressive that they got most of ours spot on and bar a few issues, most of us loved our dresses. I absolutely love what they picked for me. It was this really pretty dress from the Label Lab range.

The rose print is so pretty, but my favourite part of the dress is the asymmetrical shape. I love how it's short at the front, but long at the back. It definitely makes it something a bit difference, and makes it stand out. I paired it with my Clarks booties, and the two were a perfect combination. I can't wait to go bare legs with this dress over the summer!
House of Fraser has a lot of really pretty dresses, especially for the Party Season, so if you haven't sorted out your Christmas dress yet, House of Fraser is the place to go.

And here's how everyone else styled their respective dresses:

As you can see, only 9 out of us 10 managed to style the dress. There were a few sizing issues and a bit of difficulty with getting alternatives. It's a shame that these issues came about and weren't resolved. Ellie did try her hardest to get another dress, and went in store to exchange, but sadly, it wasn't meant to be. Check out the other blogs to see how everyone got on.

You always make me long to be a blogger in the UK. LOL! They treat you so well over there. Sigh.

That dress is beautiful on you and really does fit you perfectly. They did a terrific job of knowing what would suit you.

I always love seeing the Take 10 challenges- you girls all have such unique, diverse styles that it makes for really interesting looks. The dress that you were sent to style is absolutely gorgeous. I love this winter look, but I think it will be even more gorgeous in the summer with bare legs and gladiator sandals... It's just crying out to be worn to a music festival!
xox,

I love the hemline of this dress. Definitely agree that it'll look great in summer too. x

Leia said...

What a fun concept! I really like the asymmetrical hem too. I can see you wearing this quite often in the summer - floaty fabric and short sleeves will make it perfect for warmer days too!
