OMG - Is She Wearing STRIPES?!

Yup. This is actually the Lauren Asymmetric Striped Tail Maxi Dress, £17.99 from OMG Fashion. I ADORE black and white stripes, they remind me of Gwen Stefani in The Sweet Escape video. I've been looking for the right casual stripey dip hem skirt (read 'no chiffon')for a few months now so when I spied this dress I thought hmm, that could work for me!

It's far too clingy for a curvy gal like me to get away with sans tshirt or cover up but I think it looks really good as a skirt! It's a weighty stretch jersey, so it falls nicely without fear of too much scary wind lift up and it's obviously a dress, so you get the added bonus of matching straps poking through your neckline. Always thinking ;)

I do like to mix these skirts up with t-shirts, it's becoming a bit of a signature look for me this summer. It's probably not to everyone's taste but I don't really care to be honest, the world would be a pretty boring place if we all look the same, the haterz wouldn't have anyone to gawp at in shopping malls for starters ;)

P.S. This tattoo isn't real, it's an Inkwear transfer. Looks cute though right?

OMG Fashion have this style of dress in a few other colours too; blue and coral, plus a nifty aztec print which is only £12.99. If the waistbands on dip hem skirts don't agree with your curves (as they often don't with mine, causing major (salute) hip spreadage!) then I think these dresses are the perfect solution and they are all under £20 - hurrah!

J - I could be your favourite girl.


  1. I love that dress and you styled it so well, I can't believe how cheap it is :O xoxo

    1. Thanks! I know right? The aztec one is like £12.99 too, amaze!


  2. You look fab (as always)- I love the combo of stripes, fierce shoes and a fabby Tee.
