Spots vs. Stripes

Posted in Daily Outfits.



Love Label Zip-through Day Dress, Steve Madden leather jacket, Primark tights and ring, Love Label Kaa Brogue Boots

I’ve always been a straight-up-and-down kinda gal – no, (definitely) not figure-wise (no one can ignore these hips o’mine) but certainly when it comes to prints. I love stripes and my wardrobe is bursting with nautical niceness in every shade imaginable.

When the lovely folk at offered me free reign on their website (well, almost) to choose some goodies to feature on the blog, I went straight to dresses and set up camp to do some deciding. And when I happened upon this dotty delight, I knew it had a place amongst all those stripes.

The dress and black brogue boots are in constant rotation – both are so easy to wear, so comfortable and oh-so perfect for autumn! For a dreary Monday morning, I styled the pieces with a tough leather jacket, intricate earrings and matchy-matchy tights. A winner, I think!

Have you ever made a purchase from Can you spot any AW10 must-haves on the website? And whose side are you on – spots or stripes?



I love spots and stripes – I don’t think I could decide between them! This dress is super-cute though so for today, I think spots are winning 🙂 x


Spots! And Gosh you look fabulous every. single. day. How do you do it? lol. I feel like a giant mismatched minger normally. I do like to think that maybe when I finish Uni things will improve xD


I love both it is so hard to choose! I would have to go with stripes although i have many pieces of both patterns 🙂

Never used Very, but that dress is gorg. I have one from H&M but with buttons down the front which is great for big boobs.

I love the earrings!



I’m always one for the stripes. But the dots look great on you. The dres is sorgeous. And the new haircut looks better and better.

Mariña " La Marquesa"

I am going to check it now…because it use to be more easy in UK to find my shoe size than in Spain or Portugal (here in Lisbon is crazy because people look at you as crazy when you ask for 11…..)


I’ve had a pair of polka dot Converse from Very on my wishlist all summer. From that you might be able to guess that I’m a spot person, but I love stripes too.

Stripes for me! Personally, I always feel like a little girl in polkadots, brings out the girly side in me whereas perhaps stripes are a little more masculine? Think Audrey Tatou in Coco Avant Chanel – a woman on a mission. Would be interesting to perhaps subvert this; spots being more tailored or stripes being more feminine? jazzy ♥


I’m a sdtripes girl myself, though partial to some spots occaisionally! I have a gorgeous dress from the Fearne Cotten for Very collection which I love.
