Matalan Dress Haul...

Afternoon all! I popped into Matalan the other day, I was supposed to be helping my dad pick a birthday present for my mum, instead, I walked out with 4 dresses. Ooops! My bad! I didn't bother trying them on in store so I had a bit of a (barefoot) fashion show at home..


First up is this mink maxi with rope detail. The most expensive of the lot at £10 (still a bargain I know) I think for me this had more hanger appeal, it was ok on, but I think it has to go back...

Next is this khaki maxi priced at £5, again I thought it looked great in the shop but I wasn't convinced once I got it home, it just didn't blow me away...

Sticking with the same dress, I also picked it up in an electric blue, for the same bargain price of £5. This was a total different story, I love the colour, one I wouldn't normally wear and look who had to get in on the action...

And finally, again for the super bargain price of £5 is this gorgeous knee length dress. Out of all the dresses this was my least favourite in the shop, but I thought oh it's £5 I'll get it anyway, but once I got it home and tried it on, I have to say it was my favourite! I love it!

So there you have it! 2 out of 4 ain't bad! For reference all of the dresses I bought were a size 20, on my size 22 body, so its always worth trying something on even if it isn't your size! Awesome bargain-ness at Matalan!

  3. It's amazing the difference colour can make to the same dress. The khaki looks ok on you, a nice basic maxi, but the blue looks fabulous on you. Very eye catching :) x

  6. Oh my giddy aunt! I lurve the last dress. Just my type of shape and print. I agree, the blue dress suits you so much better than the other colour.
