Five take is where Nicole, Rebecca, Claire ,Becky and I all take a theme or item of clothing and wear it in our own way and this week it's geometric... and I'm cheating a little.
A few weeks ago I saw a dress on the New Look website that I loved from first sight, so had to have it. Ordered it in my usual size 26 and was very excited when it arrived. After all I love geometric patterns - in fact I'm beginning to think I love ALL patterns (unless they are curtain-fabric like florals).
But then I tried it on, and I wasn't sure. Here, have a look:
This is it as I first tried it on, with black Evans boots and leggings. Not too sure with it at this stage. So I tried this:
Note the introduction of a belt (Simply Be). And I liked it more, but I think the problem with it was that it was really just too big and stretchy around the middle:
And I just realised that although I loved the pattern, and it was comfy to wear, it just didn't make me feel fabulous. So it went back. Unfortunately they didn't have the size smaller so it just wasn't to be.
A sad story, but a lovely fabric and pattern. Some things just aren't meant to be... but at least I have this...
Gap t-shirt. Ooh look, pattern!
So, are you a pattern lady or plain and simple?
