Tigerlilly Quinn: Wish List

Wish List

1, Coral Chambray Jacquard dress
2, Madam Rage Mint Green Cutwork dress
3, Blue green formal dress
4, Shell Pink Embellished dress

When I was a teenager growing up in the small seaside town of Aberystwyth we had three high street shops. New Look, Dorothy Perkins and Monsoon. As teenagers we felt Monsoon was for middle aged women, (I've changed my mind now!) Dorothy Perkins for mature students which left New Look holding the market place for 14 year olds wishing to spend their Saturday job money on a new dress for the school disco.

When I left home New Look was very much in my mind as a place that teenagers shopped, so for a good ten years it has passed me by somewhat as a place to turn to for fashion. Which was silly really as they have some lovely stuff! This 'wish list' has been inspired by evening dresses, you may think I have chosen to very retro styled dresses in the selection above (and I have) but I was surprised to see just how sixties many of the dress styles are. I'm all about dresses, I've spoken before about how I rarely wear jeans (I have one pair) and I am a sucker for anything with a floral pattern or sixties cut.

All of the above evening dresses are less than £40 (some are £25!) keeping true to their cheap prices and making fashion accessible to a wide range of people. Personally I am drawn to the styles of one and three (which is great as they are the cheapest!). They have me thinking of Mad Men and drinking pims in the garden on a summer's day. Isn't the mint colour in the third dress the perfect shade?

Which dress is your favourite and what do you think of New Look's dress range?

this is a sponsored post but all words and thoughts are my own (and I do really love those dresses!)
