Hobbs’ “British” style

Hobbs-logo

I was actually looking for maxi dresses, when I came across some extremely classic, “British old style” dresses at Hobbs. I think they could look great. It is vital to style them the right way though or they will look frumpy. They are a little “kitsch” in a way… but I like them!

Have a look at the pages if you like, there are many more, although I have chosen the ones I liked only, obviously! You must look at the dress itself and don’t let your eyes wander to the hideous shoes they show it with.

I know it’s difficult, but imagine that dress with a pair of really trendy heels… have you? Then you know it’s a cute dress!

A DRESS A DAY 3

It seems lace is really in fashion this year. I don’t love it, mainly because it is really difficult to find one which doesn’t look “tarty”… This Massimo Dutti sleeveless dress though looks very simple and chic. It is rather elegant, I do think one needs the right occasion in order to wear it, unless of course you are one of those women who can “pull it off” anywhere!
