When i shop i like to shop alone, i know i know, that sounds really anti-social and as a woman we normally attack our prey (a pretty dress in our case) in a pack. Not the case for me. Don’t get me wrong i will shop with friends and family, i’m not that mean where i banish anyone within 20 feet of me when in a shop, no no. But for me the enjoyment and the best purchases are normally done alone. Its my therapy, whether that be in an actual shop or online browsing.
However because i like to shop alone, sometimes i do miss out on those valued opinions of others. Sometimes i do get it wrong and i end up making a completely useless purchase that will end up living in my wardrobe, tags on, never to see the light of day, which makes me sad:( and feel like a bit of a twonk.
A little bit of help in the form of a style advisor wouldn’t go astray now and again to stop some of those rogue purchases.
So when Wallis introduced me to their new Style Advisor App i thought hey, this is something i could use.
You see, sometimes in my head i still think i have that 20 year old, pre baby body who could wear anything.. obvs not the case.
By going through all there lovely little diagrams and making myself a profile which included my shape (im a big ol’ fruity pear), your colouring, your personality when dressing and lots more lil bits about you, you then get presented with some good honest facts about what is best for you and your shape and then some suggestions as to what might look good on you.
I have to say i love a good app that helps and presents pretty clothes to me. And Wallis were spot on with their choices; look at those shoes above… swoon! and above that, patterned trousers…yes please!
You may have noticed that i am pretty obsessed with Khaki right now.. well from inputting my details and interests, what d’you know a bit of khaki was recommended to me (quelle surprise), in the form of this gorgeous dress… i love it (thanks Wallis great recommendation!). As well as clothes they have all the accessories to go with, making up full outfits has never been easier. I went for a new fave colour combo, lime and khaki.. how good are they together! I don’t know why i didn’t think of this pairing before, they are both from the green family so are close siblings that on paper i thought wouldn’t work, close siblings that argue shall we say, but i love it! Clashy-contrast can be so so good.
All thanks to Wallis
