Shopping my wardrobe-Asymmetric Dresses

According to the Telegraph, the Top 5 trend led dresses are Structured dresses, the LBD, Pastel dresses, Ruffle dresses and Asymmetric dresses:


DVF Twisted Wilma dress at Browns, £188

I decided to shop my own wardrobe for this trend and have got 2 in 1, which is very similar to the DVF one above!!

A perfect LBD and Asymmetric dress, this is by United Colors of Benetton and from the Sense charity shop last year, for £3.99. I can dress it down as shown here for a daytime look or glam it up without a top underneath and accessories for evening wear:


What style of dress will be wearing this season and can you already shop your own wardrobe for it?

Hi! How's the Queen of Thrifting?
Wow, I love that dress you're wearing. It looks as expensive as the dress from net-a-porter.

3.99! You're amazing. Now that's one trend I wouldn't expect you to already have in your closet, but there you go!

You know where to find them. I never find anything that great. Usually, I have to remake it somehow. I'm very impressed. I am hoping to the get the "wonder yard" a diy project book from the lib. soon. Really, a nifty book to make everything from dresses to curtains. I'm still on my hat making binge.

Nice dress & I like the way you've styled it. Where are the boots from?

Vintage Vixen said...

Yours is definately the best of the bunch! How stylish and elegant. I love the pointy boots and skinny top you've teamed it up with. What a splendid find.

Love the dress... so fun to shop at your own closet. It makes us creative.

Happy weekend! xoxo

Actually, I have a similar dress hanging in my shower! I keep hoping the steam from morning showers will take the wrinkles out of it. It looks like I may have to break down and purchase a steamer (I prefer NOT to use the steam iron on it....) I THINK I can wear it much as you demonstrate and describe here!

Thanks for the tip!

Apparently no dresses for me unless they are the ones in my wardrobe currently! I am on a shopping ban til' April so I cannot buy a thing! I guess the phrase 'work with what you've got' really comes into play here, then...

You look great in that dress!! I also like the one you picked out too, the angles are very inviting to the eyes. Definitely need something like this in my wardrobe.

ellie said...

Thanks so much for the note. I know I'm writing about a tricky subject..maybe one ..no one likes to talk about, but I thought it might be a good idea. & yes, sometimes, there is no romance in what I write about.
