Project Take 10 Challenge 3

Posted in Daily Outfits.

10 girls, 1 piece, 10 different looks. That’s the simple premise behind Project Take 10! Our third challenge was set by Peacocks. They sent us a dress from their Pearl Lowe range – a collection I’d never paid much attention to, but now wish I’d taken note earlier!

Here’s how I styled the piece – a flirty, flattering dress the colour of damsons.

The dress is designed to hang oh-so-casually in that draped, off-duty-model way that really never works for me, so I cinched it in at the waist with a skinny belt that was hidden by the folds of the dress. Crafty.

I love the slightly Victorian sleeves, so went with that schoolmistress thing and paired the dress with patterned tights and prim brogues. The leather jacket adds just enough behind-the-bikesheds cool.

Here’s how the other girls rocked it…

I’m loving all the looks for challenge 3! How would you style this dress? Any pointers for me?



I love this, and your tights are amazing! Love the way you wear it.
With your lovely skin I think pushing the sleeves up would really set the colour off on you, especially as it has a modest necklin.

Love the purple, and for a Peacocks dress it looks very well made and good quality.

Love the leather with it, will be checking out the range.



really love that dress, the colour is amazing!
And from what i can see everyone looks awsome in theirs 🙂 xx


The colour of that dress is absolutely beautiful! I love the tights you’ve teamed it with. I love these challenges (:


It looks great on you Jen 🙂

What’s the quality like? I’ve found that the vast majority of that range is nasty fabric and really shoddily made which isn’t something you can really tell from photos.

It looks so different on us all. it’s a got a definite vintage vibe with your styling, which i love!
And it sets off your newly shorn locks perfectly


i LOVE the colour of that dress, though not really a fan of the high neckline..

it’s really interesting to see how you girls work it for each challenge, this is probably the piece i’ve seen styled most differently too. x


I am really loving this dress on all of you (and I’ve just read four take 10 blog posts in a row and not sick of it so that’s got to be good!)
